The answer is pretty simple, you will get more exposure for your website and will bring in more clients, thus it will pay itself within a short amount of time.

We will send you instructions on how and where to open an account with the Registrar where the domain is registered. Once you have an open account and send us the account number, we will "Push" the domain to your account and you will have full control and ownership of the domain name.
The norm for proof of domain ownership is a "Whois" search on the internet and such information is kept by online registrars. The registrar keeps records of the contact information and submits the technical information to a central directory known as the "registry." We recommend www.whois.sc or www.whois.net in case you need to check ownership of any domain.
