iPage and Domain Costs
One of the perks when using iPage is that you get to choose a domain name for free on the first year of usage. If you intend to keep on using the domain name, you may opt to have it renewed – but for those of you who’d rather something new, you have the choice of having it changed which will obviously come at a certain price.
Having your domain name renewed will be just the same as iPage’s regular domain rates since their prices are identical. But you must know that domain costs will depend on what Top Level Domain you intend on using for your website. A Top Level Domain, or a TLD, is that suffix you see at the end of the websites. If you haven’t noticed it yet, the most common and popular website Top Level Domain is the ‘.com’. A ‘.com’ Top Level Domain will cost you around $15, $14.99 if you want to be precise – every year.
But there’s no need to worry, your Top Level Domain will be in no connection whatsoever with your website type. Whether you intend on putting up a website for a business or a personal blog wouldn’t matter at all. The decision will be up to you. But be sure you’re aware of all the costs. Remember, not all Top Level Domains are priced at one rate. Some are cheap whilst others come at heftier prices.
