A word about Nonprofit URLs

Photo by jef safi

One of the most important things about your organization’s website is having a guessable URL. If your organization is called The Hope Shelter, don’t get a domain (URL) name of www.homelessshelterwisconsin.com. Domains are extremely inexpensive ranging from $7-$10 per year from Go Daddy, and they are worth the investment. I recommend not only buying the .org, but also the .com of your URL. It’s much better to buy it now, then to wait a few years to find that someone else has scooped up your domain. There are a lot of cybersquatters out there.
