Increasingly today, though, every business needs a domain name. They’re necessary for everything from marketing to sales.

So how can you buy one without breaking the bank?

Here are a few top tips…

1. Look out for domain name sales

Domain name sales are a great way to get a cut-price domain, even if it’s just for the first year of purchase.

Until the end of June 2022, Heart Internet is running a sale on a huge range of domain names.

Discounts are available on everything from .coms to .cafes. From .clubs to .ninjas.

Some domain names, like certain .accountant domains, have had more than 69% slashed off the original price.

2. Buy in bulk

If you’re in the market to buy five or more domains, you can save money by using a bulk buying service like Heart Internet’s Domain Credits.

As the name suggests, Domain Credits are credits that you can buy and use to purchase domains at Heart Internet.

When you use Domain Credits to buy domains, you unlock discounts.

The discount you unlock depends on two factors:

  • The amount of credits you buy at once – you can buy them in batches of 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100 at a time.
  • The type of domains you buy – there are different discounts for .uk and .com domains for example.

You can view the full table of discounts on our Domain Credits product pages, but it’s possible to save as much of 45% on the cost of a domain.

3. Take advantage of free domain names

When entrepreneurs come up with a new idea, they often go straight into buying a domain name that links to that idea.

For example, let’s say you’ve just invented a revolutionary new bakery product that’s a mix between a muffin and a loaf – let’s call it a loaffin.

The first thing you’ll do is go to the domain name search pages to see if a loaffin domain is available.

If it is, you’ll most likely snap it up before anyone else does.

However, if you’re setting up a website to go with that idea, you’ll also need some sort of hosting plan.

Many hosting plans come with a free domain name, so you could save yourself money by purchasing a package before you buy your domain.

At Heart Internet, our Web Hosting and WordPress Hosting plans come with a free domain name for the first year.

You can find out more about these plans, as well as the other freebies they include, on our product pages.
