I usually tell these only to my Internet students during our Internet Business coaching class.
Today I decided to share this small tip with all of you to help you to save some money, especially if you prefer to buy new domain names from godaddy.com.
For those of you who do not already know these: If you go directly to godaddy.com to buy a new domain name (at this point in time), the standard price per year per domain is typically USD$12.99 (price changes overtime) for a .com etc.
However, if you go to google.com and search for these keywords “register domain names” (or similar keywords), you will see GoDaddy’s advertisements on Google Adwords for discounted domains.
So, if you clicked on the ads and go through the godaddy.com site to buy the domains, you will get a substantial discount off the usual rates of US$12.99. I have registered many domains using this sneaky tactic at price points between USD$2.99 to USD$7.99 per domain per year.
To maximise your savings, you can register the new domains for a longer period of time at the discounted rates. For example, you can register your new domain at USD$5.99 for 5 years (or more, it is up to you) , so you can actually extend your savings for 5 years.
Or you can register multiple domain names at one go at the discounted rates too.
One thing to note though: This is for new domain name registration only. Renewal rates will resume back to the standard rates when your domains are up for renewal. If you are testing out new ideas online and need some domain names, godaddy.com is a good place to get cheaper domain names.
The discounted domain rates will apply when you are checking out from godaddy.com shopping cart.
I have been using them for countless projects (domain names registration) over the past 10 years, and I have no problem with them so far. BTW, I just used them for domain name services, I do not host with them because I think there are better web hosting companies out there!
