Should I renew bookofjoe.com — or let it expire on July 9, 2012?

Screen Shot 2011-09-06 at 1.20.52 PM

Above, a notice that appeared in my inbox this morning.

I've got 10 more months before my ownership of bookofjoe.com expires.

Worth the $34.99 to renew it for a year?

Or should I opt for five ($114.95)?

FunFact: As some have speculated, the inspiration for the domain name was the Book of Job — not Jobs.

Please do!

Renew. But don't do $35.

$10 per year is the norm for domain names.

Yes, please.

Why are you even asking? ;-)

Please renew! Got to have my daily dose of Book of Joe.

Definitely renew but there are cheaper options than registering your domain name with Network Solutions.

Funny - I just did an NS Lookup and it says your domain doesn't expire until 2017 - guess you went ahead and renewed eh? Good news!!

Joe, why are you teasing these nice people?

Posted by: Milena | Sep 6, 2011 10:55:06 PM

you cannot not continue. what will we do without our daily shot of joe?

I second the recommendation of moving the domain to bluehost.com. When you transfer they will charge you $10 for extending the registration for one year. I just moved my main domain over to them this weekend and it was pretty simple. Their support and cpanel were easy to work with. $35 for renewal is definitely a rip off.

Keep things as they are :)

I'll take over the domain and lease it back to you for a reasonable sum.

I always thought the inspiration came from a cup of Joe - being the time it takes to consume both are the same.

Bluehost.net has been good to me for a while. $10/yr Domain registration.

If you don't renew, I might actually get some work done.

Posted by: Jeff | Sep 6, 2011 5:59:18 PM

I'm all about the value, so I'd opt for the 5 year renewal.

And yeah, keep the good stuff coming!

Posted by: Rob O. | Sep 6, 2011 5:53:57 PM

Definitely renew and keep on publishing! But I'd like to see some recommendations here from people other than me, about what might be a better domain registrar to use. It think that there are some reliable ones that are much cheaper than Network Solutions. For example, I've used 1and1.com for a number of years and they're pretty reasonably priced. I think it's up to about $10/year now.

Opt for 20 more years, after that I won't know if I'm

on BOJ or BOA (Book of Alzheimers)!

Posted by: Joe Peach | Sep 6, 2011 4:37:50 PM

you better! don't go anywhere!

Posted by: Jeff | Sep 6, 2011 4:30:49 PM

I've only ever read you by way of RSS, but thought I'd stop in to say "Yes, please renew" and "$34.99 for one year is a ripoff. Transfer that thing."

And then I'd plug directnic.com or register.com. I use both.

I hope you renew, I really enjoy your posts.

Totally your call, but I hope you do!
