A .BLOG domain name is the perfect way to brand your blog. It’s descriptive, with lots of great names available, and it’s not expensive.
But what if you could get €15* off your .BLOG domain name – not just this year, but EVERY YEAR YOU USE IT?
For a limited time only, you can sign up for a .BLOG domain name with Blacknight and pay just €9.99* each and every year (normal price €24.99*).
What’s the catch? It’s simple: we just want you to use your blog!
All you have to do is add a 12-month hosting plan when you register your domain name. Choose from one of our Linux web hosting plans (add the world-famous WordPress content management system for free) – or try our easy-to-use siteBuilder. You’ll see the €15* discount applied in the shopping cart when you add the hosting.
And that’s not all! When your .BLOG domain name comes up for renewal at the end of the year, just make sure that you renew your hosting as well, and you’ll continue to get that €15* discount, each and every year!
* All prices exclude VAT. If VAT is included at 23%, the discount amounts to €18.45. The offer applies to new .BLOG domain names only. Only one free domain per hosting/siteBuilder subscription. Offer ceases to be valid if the domain is transferred to another registrar, or the hosting to another hosting company.

New Top Level Domains like .BLOG add an extra layer of meaning ‘to the right of the dot’. Coupled with a good generic keyword, a .BLOG domain name makes it immediately obvious what the purpose of the site is, and premium names are set to become highly valued: e.g. sports.blog, food.blog, fashion.blog.
For everyday sites too, however, a .BLOG domain name is an ideal way to identify your site’s purpose by its online address. Got a personal brand? .BLOG it! Got a hobby or a passion? .BLOG it! Represent a community or an organisation? .BLOG it! Got a product or service to sell? .BLOG it – and then FLOG it!
A blog is a conversation. The best bloggers are authorities on their subject, and they got that way by listening, by study and by experience. But unlike traditional one-way media, bloggers recognise that they are part of a discussion. Before you blog, read other blogs in your subject area. Leave comments, and read other comments. Get a feel for the community of bloggers, and introduce yourself. Then, begin!
Yes. If you’ve already got a website or blog, and you want to move it to a new domain name (such as .BLOG), you can do so and still retain all the traffic and search-engine ranking that you’ve already built up.
We’ve published a step-by-step guide on how to do this. We recommend reading it, even if you plan to get a developer to migrate the domain name, rather than doing it yourself. It’s written simply and straightforwardly, and it will help you to understand process involved.
