This is Bart's website, ReallyCheapNames.com, where he sells domain names, which you can then use to build a website.
There’s a lot to learn about domain names that you might not be aware of. Sure, you might know how to register them, but do you know all the different aspects to managing your domain names so you don’t lose them? Well, look no further than my next guest. He owns his own domain name registration company called ReallyCheapNames.com, and he's going to teach us the most important aspects for searching, registering, transferring and working with domain names.
My next guest is the author of 27 books, which include topics covering business, motivation, relationships, domain names, cooking, networking, speaking, weight-loss and fitness, personal development, romance/erotica … wow, and he has domain names that represent some kind of website online for each of those topics. He's been registering domain names for more than 20 years, and over that time, he's learned a few things that will help you when it comes to registering any domain name. Please help me welcome, Bart Smith.
