AB Testing on Buying a Domain From Godaddy vs Netlify

Posted by Ninja Space Content on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 Under: Netlify
I found something interesting this past week.

Last month, I bought a domain name via Netlify because I was to host my site there anyway and decided to make it easier of myself. Earlier this year in January 2021, I also bought another domain name but this was was through Godaddy. I didn't think much of it. I buy almost all of my domains through domain because that's what I've been doing for over a decade.

Even though my January 2021 domain has been live for 8 months and the Netifly domain has only been live for 1 month, my Netifly domain has been properly indexed already and showing up in Google search queries way faster than my other domain from Godaddy is.

I have a few theories on why this is happening.

First off, I built my own database for the Netifly domain, whereas I was pulling data from a public API for the Godaddy domain. Right there, was very key. I have unique content displaying for the former and not for the latter.
(Sorry, had to run off to get ready for work. Will be back to list out 2 more reasons...)
