1&1 Internet has launched a new domain package feature designed to help businesses protect their brand online. At first glance, it looks like a great deal. It not only conveniently suggests names cybersquatters could pick up, but offers a discount on the registration cost: three domains for $19.99 and five for $29.99. So what’s the catch?
The discount prices are only for the first year. So this is a great money maker for 1&1 in the long run. While registering an extra domain or two preemptively is not a bad idea, the majority of small businesses do not need this protect. Business owners, do yourself a favor and avoid this domain package.
