500B: Should we buy a domain name?


Today, I’m bringing up the topic of

Should we buy a domain name?

So, what’s a domain name? A domain name is basically the thing at the end of a website name: “.com”, “.co.th”, “.net”, etc. 

Now, of course, we can turn our site’s link from https://kisclassof2017.wordpress.com to http://kisclassof2017.com . It’s much cooler, and will put less strain to your fingers when you type.

That, however, comes with a cost. The cost of purchasing the domain name (yes, “.com” domains ARE NOT free!) and using it with WordPress (WP.com doesn’t allow us to use our purchased domains for free) is $17, which is 527.85 Baht. Per year.

500 Baht per year. Is a domain something good and worthy enough to warrant spending a lunch coupon?

Well, personally, I think that it is a good thing. After all, we get a whole year of a cool “.com” domain. That’s not really the problem though, it’s about where the money is going to come from.

What do you guys think?
