    Not sure if anyone has shared this and whether this will work for everybody, but I was just registering a .net domain via Namecheap and they added a free .biz domain of the same name to my order. Can anyone confirm this works for others?

    I definitely expect to pay the renewal fee for both domains next year. That's not anything to be surprised of and is completely fine with me.

    Name cheap is a great company, been with them for years.
    None of the shitty upselling like godaddy does.

    Namecheap is pretty cool, I hope I won't be disappointed with them. On Godaddy's early days they were pretty good, cheap, fast compared to network solutions. These days namecheap can be trusted, I hope they stay that way.

    Thanks for the heads up OP.

    That applies to co m domains, too. Additionally, you can use the $1 link that r3v01uti0n gave on this forum and they will still give the .biz domain.
