    I need a ton of .info domains, like about 625 of them in the near future.

    Any thread I find on BHW about it seems a little outdated, all I can get from Godaddy is $2.99 (even in bulk quantities). Of course I could apply a 30% discount coupon to that, but its still like $2.10 each ...

    Meanwhile, after researching many other registrars, the only one I'm seeing for $1 infos now is 1and1.com. However, they have really bad reviews.

    However, I may be willing to risk the bad reviews if it means I can buy more than twice as many .infos at the same cost.

    Is anyone here having good luck buying .info from 1and1? How much do they charge on renewal of .info domains (can't find it on their site).

    Does anyone know a place for $1 info's that have a better reputation than 1and1?

    Go to godaddy and get them for $.49 each. Just add the .mobi to your cart and then change it to .info at checkout. Automatic discount.

    Yeah it's unfortunate I'm a few days late, tried every combination with godaddy and can't seem to get cheaper than $2.99.

    After seeing a large website get it's domain and site hijacked (stolen) and moved to a different location (but still looking exactly the same), I would very much suggest to do research before you register any domain you don't want to have any chance of losing. If each of these are going to be low value or ones that may grow and therefore you could move to a better registrar when as they became a little more valuable to you, then you can afford to be less picky... but if these are projected to be fairly valuable anytime soon, you might want to think about this now.

    (The site I saw jacked was registered via OnlineNIC. A person got into the Gmail of the owner, sent a transfer request, opened the email, approved it and deleted the email trace without the owner seeing it. OnlineNIC has literally have refused to do anything to help - saying that they received a valid DNS transfer. I know the owner of the domain is working with a lawyer and probably trying to force them to act on it... but it's alot easier and cheaper to prevent it from happening. At the very minimum, make sure to lock your domains!)

    Make sure you register your domains with an ICANN approved registrar (and then do some Google searches to see if they are having any domain complaints). I am going to move my domains off of GoDaddy soon... approved Yes, but many domain complaints as we all know.

    I just bought 6 at godaddy for .67 about a week or two ago. I just checked and it's not working anymore. Maybe it will come back later, it seems like they're having a big sale right now on the other tlds.

    These are throwaway domains for building a network supporting another network, 2 tiers away from money sites. I may or may not even renew them. They will be fairly worthless, containing only spun content.

    1 and 1 is pure evil. They should work in hustling racket business. They've got all the skills to do it.

    I dealt with 1and1 in the past. I was not born with enough middle fingers to articulate how I feel about them. They make everything so convoluted. Back then (quite a few years ago, but it may still be this way) they had a completely separate website that you had to login to to turn things like auto renew on and off. I turned off auto renew for a domain and low and behold they locked everything down on it to the point that I could not even change a DNS entry and they wanted a bunch of money to give me control back. I had like 3 months left on the registration and they were like, "SUCKS TO BE YOU, LOL PAY UP".

    I can say however that before that happened I never really had a problem. Of course I was just paying renewal fees every year and never changed anything. (I bought my first domain with them and a couple others) Once you fidget with a setting though, they can come out of nowhere and screw you in ways you did not conceive of. So if you do register anything with them, make sure you study up on how they do things and be very deliberate and knowledgeable about everything you click in the backend on your domains.

    With as many domains as you are talking, moving them could quickly become a nightmare if you don't want to renew with them for some reason. At least if it is still the way it was back then. They make you jump through hoops in a fashion that makes it feel like an outright and blatant punishment for leaving them. I wish I had an alternative suggestion for you to get some cheap domains other than them.
