Most people are familiar with a domain name. Basically, it is the name of the website that people type in the URL to visit your website. For example, our domain name is www.bayouwebdesignplus.com. Costs generally range between $15 – $20 per year. The shorter the domain name, the more it will cost. For example, www.bayouwebdesignplus.com is $15/year, but www.bayouweb.com is $1,700 for the initial purchase and then $15/year thereafter. Companies like GoDaddy and Network Solutions will put a higher value on domain names that are shorter and easy to remember.
