If you’re looking for a meaningful gift for someone this holiday season, why not consider creating a website?
Registering a domain name and creating a website can be as quick, easy and inexpensive as a medium poutine (or even a small poutine, depending on the promotions .CA registrars have at the time). It can also make a good last-minute gift: you could register a domain name and then make a commitment to work together with your friend or family member to create the website of their dreams later on.
Here’s a few of our gift ideas and some free printable cards so that you’ll actually have something physical to hand over to your loved one.
And this is meant to be a fun, light-hearted suggestion. If you really do want to gift a domain name, we recommend you do so by either:
a) Registering it under your name and contact info then transferring it over to your friend later, or
b) Printing off the certificate and then working with your friend to help them register it under their name.
1. Give someone a boost for their business idea
If someone close to you is dedicated to their passion project or hobby, registering a domain name for them can be the first step in making the transformation to a legitimate business. With it you can enable them to share their creations with the world, create a professional email address and perhaps even sell their items through an online store.
