Too many URLs

Ugh, I used to buy so many URLs.

When I was setting up my first ever project, whatsitliketo.com, I bought dozens of them:

(Some come up as .shopshutterart.com domains because I put them in as add-on domains.)

15 URLs! Probably £8-10 each. Madness.

Simple tip for project-makers: just buy one URL. Google deals with misspellings pretty well, and most people just search for the sites they want anyway. Only spend your money where it matters.

I really like making internet projects. I work on apps, games and websites at a TV company. I write stuff, make stuff, and accidentally break stuff. You should probably follow me on Twitter - @toddmgreen.
