Why are some domains more expensive than others?

You must have experienced some of the domains are priced higher than others. You can register a .com domain at much cheaper price, but if you want to register .co or .tv domain, you have to pay more cost. Also some domains are way cheaper than .com as well however it might cost you more in renewal process. What determines the cost of domain?? ???

A domain name is essential for an online business. Your website won’t work without one. It’s the name of your website, your email address, and it plays a crucial role in your marketing plan. Choose the perfect domain name and it’ll endorse and promote your business.

Why Do Some Domain Extensions Cost More?
Because people are starting to understand the power of great domains when combined with a solid business.

However, there are many bad domains overpriced because there is still the feeling that online you can make easy money.
Some Domain Extensions Cost More because they have advantages in terms of branding or SEO. For example, pick a city name and then add dentist and then .com and if someone searches Google for that city with the word dentist then the site will show higher in the google rankings assuming they have done some onsite optimization when building the website.

Why Does A Domain Name Cost Different Amounts At Different Providers?
  • Because there is nobody to set a maximum selling price for domain names.
  • Because you get everything else in the market at a different price from a different seller and so is the case with domain names.

A domain name is an address where Internet users can access your website. A domain name is used for finding and identifying computers on the Internet. Computers use IP addresses, which are a series of numbers. However, it is difficult for humans to remember strings of numbers.

As there are hundreds of different domains available, from .com to .club, the prices can vary hugely. Each domain name has a different cost depending on the domain extension. There may also be factors such as the support cost, where some domain extensions cost a little extra as they require specific support or set up requirements before they can be used.

This is also because of the demand and supply principle. When the demand for a particular premium domain name increases, its value also increases because of the low supply. A domain becomes premium when someone believes that a particular domain name is more valuable than the average domain. Domains are considered premium for a large number of reasons including length, keywords, and brand-ability.

Not all but quite a few are expensive. It depends on the name, brand, popularity. If you would want to purchase a domain name that someone would have already purchased then it depends on how much that person is willing to sell for. If you go in for a random domain name then that would not be expensive at all.

Some domain names are considered “premium” for a number of reasons:

Length - shorter domain names are much easier to remember.

Keywords - keyword domains are better for SEO and human readability.

Brandability - domains that are a perfect match for a certain brand or industry niche.

There are multiple factors affecting domain price but the basic reason is the demand and supply principle. When the demand for a particular premium domain name increases, its value also increases because of the low supply.
If you want to make money and attract as much traffic as possible, the right name can be worth the investment. However, for most sites, it's easy to find a regular domain name that works just as well.
