A commonly overheard refrain throughout this wonderful Internet is “I keep the handful of domains that absolutely MUST be up all the time with easyDNS, and all the others I keep somewhere cheaper”.
It must be a hassle, having some domains here, some over there, and dealing with the bargain basement outfits can’t be a picnic either.
Now, there is no reason to put yourself through this added hassle: The “Domain plus“ package from easyDNS is a fully functional domain registration or transfer, complete with DNS management, URL and email forwarding for $15/year.
Who should use Domain Plus?
It is perfect if you want to simply setup a domain and get it working with your web host, a blog or some third party app like Google mail. If there’s no need for “redundancy overkill” like DNS anycast or failover, then you don’t need to pay the extra money for those added capabilities.
How would you decide whether to use Domain Plus?
Ask yourself this question:
“If this domain were to go down for any amount of time, is anybody going to yell at me?”
If the answer is “probably not”, then Domain Plus is the solution for you. (If on the other hand an outage of any duration or cause would cause consternation or inconvenience among: your staff, your customers, your readers or your boss; then spend the extra few bucks a year and go with a DNS Hosting package.)
At the end of the day Domain Plus is exactly what you need for personal blogs, non-mission critical domains, feeder websites, mini-sites or any other application that isn’t holding up another piece of the Internet or your business.
