And from Nov. 21, the .blog domains will officially be available to registrations, you’ll be able to purchase a .blog domain at WordPress.com or through partner domain name registrars of Automattic. Another important point is to use WordPress will not be required, registration of this domain names is open to anyone, regardless of platform publishing, regardless of what type of site you have or who holds it.
What are the advantages of .blog?
GoDaddy, the largest domain registrar of the world’s (and also one of the Automattic partners), is offering the .blog domains at $ 39.99 / year. But just minutes before, they had discounted this domain for $27.99/year (30% off) – Good price to improving your social media presence and not worry about losing your brand domain names. But this price still is not the cheapest. We will offer a new godaddy coupon to help you get up to 40% discount for this domain extension, just $24.17/yr.
