    I have about 40 of these domains on namecheap and I am wondering if I transfer to godaddy, will they give me the year free on top. It says, free Domain Transfer plus 1 year free on top, anyone got any experience with this?

    How do I renew 50 or so domains, the cheapest alternative possible?

    any tips. I do not care what company it is, if they offer discount prices or good deals,then I am there...

    I think using Godaddy with some codes which will reduce you 30$ from 100$

    You can get a discount with namecheap, if you want to stay with them. I think it's once you have 50 domains (or close to it) with them. It's about a buck or so discount.

    They give you a coupon GOLDDEAL I think, but it has to be turned on for your account.

    Just email them.

    Those % off $amount coupons don't work on domains. That's for services - hosting, whois privacy, etc.

    What i do with namecheap is the following:

    Find the cheapest alternative for transferring say 50 domains, (I have about 300 on my account), then email namecheap and say I have all these domains coming up for renewal, Registrar A will charge me this much, can you beat that? If not, I'm afraid I might have to go with the cheapest option...

    A couple FYI's - most registrars "offer" that additional one-year beyond your current expiration date if you xfer to them. The # of names under their management is their online equivalent of whipping it out and measuring it.

    So, you get the existing time on your current registration, plus one additional year beyond that. GoDaddy, name, netsol, several others all offer that.

    Also, the transfer process can be a bit clumsy whenever you're going from one registrar to another - just something to think about.

    It wouldn't hurt to price it out @ GoDaddy, then contact namecheap and see who gives you the better deal.

    Agree. I use the GOLDDEAL coupon with NameCheap, and also like their service. I also have domains at Godaddy, and at Name.com -- but since I use privacy on a lot of domains I'm transferring more and more domains away from Godaddy because of the huge hit you take with them on privacy after the first year. It's only a couple of bucks per domain at NameCheap, and free all the time at Name.com.

    If I were you, after you have have 50 domains to bargain with, I'd get the GOLDDEAL coupon active on my account at NameCheap (email or live chat with them) -- and I'd see if they would cut any better deal to keep you as a customer.

    Dynadot - Load $500 into your account and it is dirt cheap - no coupons needed. $8.25 per domain - dotnets are even cheaper.
