    Hi folks,

    I wanna transfer couple of mine domains to another registrar, and know I don't which one to chose:

    cheapdomainnamesdot-com - transfer and renewal - $6.95 (less known but pretty cheap, also buying other domain names is cheaper), I actually never heard of them or
    godaddy-com - transfer is $6.99, renewal is $9.99 (very well known)...?

    So, the difference is $3, and for a lot of domains, that makes a difference..

    godaddy is well known and reputable, but its expensive, but you know Gaydaddy will remain there and won't close their doors, but its expensive, but gaydaddy has coupon codes for renewal, but gaydaddy don't like complains, cheapdomainswhatever sounds abit spammy, but they are cheap, and gaydaddy is expensive, but FIND THE DAMN COUPON CODES, but cheapdomainnames looks like a domain name generated by a name generator in Gaydaddy, but they are cheap, buy they close their doors, and all your work disappears...

    Use Godaddy coupon code yhkw105a for $6.99 renewal,
    so it'll get you same price as the other company.

    not for bulk domainers, but cheap price and free privacy at 1and1. be warned, transfer can seem slow, and auto renew is turned on by default, you have to turn it off if your don't want it. don't let yr credit card expire if auto renew is left on, or you could get in trouble.

    personaly i find godaddy's domain manegment inteface the easiest, but may that just from frequent use.

    good luck on your registrar request.

    namecheap -- free domain cloaking (with email forwarding--can even have it rotate random emails daily if you want), very simple yet powerful interface, free forwarding, etc. etc. Really like it. Doesn't have that bloated spam-site feel that godaddy has.

    I've transfered it to godaddy.
    Just a note about expired credit cards, I have one that is expired and I'm in debt with Yahoo Small Business about $30, I've registered one domain with them last year for $1.99, and hosted it somewhere else, and now I have $30 debt?!? For what? Domain renewal?
    Tnx God that my credit card expired, I won't pay them that..
    That's pretty cheap tricks alot of companies use, auto-renewal and similiar bullshits, we users should be able to set that up clearly..

    I concur. Namecheap does very well by me. Easy to use and no hassle from them so far.

    G0D@ddy also makes it easier to transfer domain ownership to another; everything can be done within your account as long as the new owner also has a G0D@ddy account--which considering their market share, is pretty much a lot of people.


    OFF TOPIC: Weren't you sent a renewed credit card? Check with your credit card company if they issued you a new one. If so, the 30 dollars will still be on there... I suggest you settle this, bro... contact y@hoo or whatever, tell them you want your money back because you never intended to renew your domain registration... Better deal with it now than have Y beating down on you later...Just a suggestion...

    I just got a .info domain off godaddy for .99, and hosting is free (banner ad) with it, but the cheapest .coms I have ever found are by domainsarefree(dot)com . You will definitely want to host somewhere else though, again, my godaddy hosting costs me 15.00 for three months. They also give you adwords, adcenter and facebook coupons when you use them.
    BTW, if you set up with GD, you will have your site up and running in less than an hour most of the time. I use them for everything now.
    To be fair, yes they can be a pain in the ass once in a while. They don't have a toll free support number. That's retarded, but I find most times I am wigging at the hosting or something, it's a simple call away or something that I did wrong on my end.

    dynadot was doing transfers for $9.99 but the transfer included another year for your domain.

    so $9.99 for another year and free transfer.

    They do not keep your name private with their who is guard although they will change the email, phone number and address....useless since your name could be easily traced just by googling it.
