Importance of buying URL similar to one's main URL

6 years 2 months ago #115201 by savethefrogs
Hi,
My main URL is www.savethefrogs.com .
I also own www.savethefrogs.ca and a variety of other URL's similar to www.savethefrogs.com
The www.savethefrogs.ca URL is coming up for renewal ($13/year) and I am wondering if I should abandon it. I don't have plans to use it. It is primarily to stop other people from using it. It currently redirects to my main site.
Thoughts? Thanks, Kerry

Hi Kerry,

It depends on your budget and funds. For a wealthy organization and one that's seeking to expand internationally, I'd recommend purchasing the similar domains. For a small organization that's tight on funds, it can be cost prohibitive since every penny adds up.

At OSTraining, we don't purchase every similar domain. We have a few key ones and that's it.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any questions and we'll be glad to answer.

Kind regards,
Nick
