    Hiye everyone... this was first share on BHW.....

    Everyone know that we can get a domain name for 0.99$ at godaddy using the promo 99domain. Dont flame me, I wasnt here to tell you about that...

    For petty purposes I am registering .info domainz(as they are cheap). But I wish even for landing pages .com domain name sound good rather than .info

    Wish I can create many new accounts on godaddy and can have as many domains as I wish to have....I gonna purchase a Godaddy Giftcard worth some 15$... use if for each of the new account I created.... I can register around 12 .com names for just 15$...

    So all my BHW friends, please comment wheather something like this could work, and please give me ur valuble suggestionz...

    Thank you!!!

    Wouldn't it be kind of fishy that all those 12 accounts purchased a domain with the same card?.....Just wondering.

    Dont know if that is allowed or not but just putting it out there.

    I am pretty sure I saw a thread about this yesterday as well as another one a few days ago.. I can understand that it can be missed.. search for the keyword: 99domain.

    Anyways the summary:
    A couple of users bought more than one on old accounts. I believe 1 guy bought 6. The solution according to him was to register them one at a time.

    So where is the catch:
    Its a dollar for the first year. The renewal cost for the second year will not be the normal $9 approx but rather the cost of back-ordering the domain. i.e. 19$, plus you will need private registration (or maybe not!!) that costs 9$ per year.
    So the effective cost excluding the cost of private registration by the second year will be at least 20$ which is more than the discount a 20% discount would give you.

    I want more:
    In addition as I had point out on another thread, if you use the godaddy buld registration tool to register 5 or more domains you will get private registration for free, so effectively even if you register 5 .com's without any discount coupons, it will cost you:
    for the .com's : 50$
    effective discount on private registration: 45$
    actual cost of domains: $1 each + no catch included

    Furthermore as professional20 pointed out, how do you intend to use a single gift-card on 5 different accounts..

    Weigh the pro's and con's for yourself.. and the private registration is definitely a factor that should not be avoided.

    for bulk registration goto:
    Ah and yes I totally forgot: if you register 6 or more .coms including the private registration the effective cost will be $0.

    Remember to select private registration when you reach the cart, they slyly point it out but do not auto-select it.

    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Using this coupon On november when this worked I registered totally about 20 coms from ONE paypal account and from just created godaddy accounts,
    BUT then godaddy contacted me and asked for my passport id to verify purchases, after I sent in It's been ok- even they saw that I have taken advantage of this coupon and just registering for each new domain new account and then transfering them all to my one main account.
