Why wouldn't I want a domain?
Now that is a good question! We'll try to think of some:

  • Your site is already established at its current long and yucky URL.
  • Everybody already knows your old email address, and you're never going to switch ISPs anyway.
  • $9.95/year is cheap, but not as cheap as FREE!
  • You like that 1994 feel of not having your own domain name.
  • You don't want to be associated with the dot-com crash in any way.
  • You don't care about how cool or professional you look.
  • Anybody too lazy to type in your full URL (or email address) doesn't deserve to visit your site (or email you) anyway.
  • It's too easy.. anybody could do it.
  • It's fun to try later and come up with creative domain names that haven't been taken.

Honestly, it's much easer to come up with reasons why you would want a domain.
