    Ok, here is the screenshot of my Namecheap Purchase. Rispel is right - whoever gave bad rep, please remove if you can - I'm ok with publishing the domain name.

    And - on top of that - I purchased a second insurance related domain today. Same thing: $299 at Godaddy, and $9.79 at Namecheap.... See proof below:

    Not exactly: Godaddy did not register the domain - they just try to charge $9K to register. It happened again to me today (see my latest post), where they wanted $299 for an insurance related domain...

    Godaddy like many other registrars has earned a lot by securing high search keyword domain names. I think they put such domain names into auction right away.

    Godaddy is a loss project for me. Namecheap better
