When you’re looking for a new domain, and not sure which one you want, we’ve found that you are sometimes better off to reserve the domain (URL) that you want right away.  When you search to see if a URL is available, some companies track that activity, and reserve that URL for themselves right away. (The sale of profitable URLs is a thriving business.)

We’ve been using 1&1 almost since the start of Geek For Hire. (They recently changed their name to IONOS.) We use them to reserve URLs, and they host our website. We’ve found them to be reasonably priced and very good to work with. The few times we’ve had issues, they were able to get things fixed quickly. I like that you can easily set up your new domain with WordPress. You can then quickly get your website up and running. Check out to reserve your new domains.
