    Hi guys,

    To cut a long one short, I bought a domain from Bluehost for $9.99 last year, now it comes to renewal, they want over $100!

    Is this normal? I don't think it is, but would love to know what you guys think.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section, but I can't find one that fits the subject.

    Cheers,

    James :)

    Agreed, time to abandon ship before they go in deep.

    Send them an email saying that you'll post your negative impression on every marketing forum.
    They'll surely drop the price. ;)

    If you signed up for something like the $3.95/4.95 per month hosting, that's a 1 year promotional rate.

    I got burned by them too and decided to leave.
    My hosting with them expired today.

    Good one, they need as many people as possible to go. Greedy is what they are.
