Mercury Retrograde and Caution

Mercury Retrograde and Caution

It’s a cautionary tale, told when Mercury is Retrograde, as it best illustrates the way this trickster can work.

I got an ad for a Domain Name Registry, and the price looked a lot less than what I’m paying now, at first glance.

There’s a reason I strongly recommend, and it has to do with pricing. Hidden charges, hidden fees, the ubiquitous fineprint?

”Tax, title, license, dealer freight, and prep?”

So the ad was something like, “First year, buy a new name or transfer an existing one? $9.99!”

Good price. Problem: price more than doubles for the next year.

And I’m back to where I started. This almost pointless meander made me realize how well I simplified and how I continue to check to make sure I’ve got the easiest, simplest outfit to run. Simpler is better. And cheap, keep it cheap, too. All part of the package.

Mercury Retrograde, I got this burr under my digital saddle, make it better, more faster, cheaper, and — wait. Turns out I’ve found that speed versus price balance point. Maybe Mercury Retrograde is about what works, and testing it, just to make sure.

I spent a portion of my normal working day, digging around on a discount web hosting site, trying to ascertain if there was a better way to run this enterprise. Number of sites I’ve got, the bandwidth, the backend requirements, security, backup, disk space, and, honestly, I’ve got handle on most of that.

Mercury in Retrograde was making a serious attempt to complicate the situation.
