Simple domain registration offered directly from Posterous

Domain registration

custom_domainsPosterous announced today that they’re offering “dead simple” domain registration for your Posterous blog without having to choose a host, visit GoDaddy or asking your friends how to do it- it requires no tech savvy, simply selecting how many years. One year is $24.99/years, two years is $19.99/year, five years costs $15.99/year and for $10/year you can add additional ID theft protection.

Posterous is one of the simplest free blogging platforms available and we learned this week that ad servers may soon be allowed on your Posterous blog. We’ve recommended Posterous before for single property websites, personal blogs or (like we do) a humor blog to blow off steam.

It’s a good idea to have your own domain for a site you don’t own, because honestly, it’s quite passé to have a URL like or rather than, plus it fits better in your print marketing and email signatures.

    I had the Dakno guys customize my Posterous site and brand it like all my others. They added a sub domain from my static site.
    You would not believe all the leads I am now getting from it from my web-site. My web-site is basically static, except for a few pages, Neighborhoods, and listings I add. So it has really helped that.

      Missy, last time we covered Posterous, it was argued that it’s useless for business, so I’m glad to hear your take on it, that’s great news! 🙂

  2. Hi Lani, we agree Posterous is a terrific, easy-to-use tool for agents, brokers, even home buyers who use it to document their home buying journey among the many uses. Like Missy, we have many agent clients who have used Posterous to gain additional traffic (i.e. lead generation opportunities) to their primary URL.

    Take Hoboken condo expert Walter Burns as an example. By simply using Posterous, Walter is on page #1 for several of his Hoboken condo buildings because of his photo blogging efforts using Posterous ( as the “pass through” content distribution mechanism to his WordPress Photo Blog (

    Instead of setting up “silo” URLs by opting for a new domain for Posterous, why not create a sub domain (using Missy’s example: so the content generated is attributed to the primary domain ( That way your primary URL is the benefactor of your content at Posterous.

    Keep up the great work! I’m a big fan of AG!
