Top 7 Most Expensive Domain Names Ever Sold

Hover Blog – 6.21.19 (6.18.19)

Every website needs a domain name. Most people agree that, even in the day and age of search, a domain name is important. Some believe that your domain name is still worth a significant investment in order to secure a “premium” domain name, while some choose to go for a domain on sale, new Top-Level Domains (TLDs), or inexpensive options when starting a new business. When people think of the cost of domain names, they likely think of their $12.99 .COM domain name. You can stumble across those inexpensive options in search, but may sometimes find your first choice for a domain name is taken. Luckily, buying a domain name through traditional means, such as the search bar on your favourite registrar, isn’t the only way to secure the domain name of your dreams.

Popular Domain Names for Podcasters

Hover Blog – 6.6.19 (6.3.19)

Being a podcaster is an exciting world to be part of. The listener rates boast enticing numbers for any potential podcaster, with 73% of Americans over the age 12 listening of podcasts on a monthly basis and 28% of Canadians over the age of 18 tuning in monthly. If you’re looking to connect with an audience and spread the word about what matters to you, now is a great time to do so. That said, now you’re competing with all types of niche and general podcast topics to get the attention of a generation not well known for brand loyalty or paying much attention to one subject.
