Just a heads up: Today only, Namecheap has domain transfers for $3.98. I didn't have to pay taxes on mine. It was exactly $3.98. If you transfer your domain, you don't have to renew it. It automatically renews for one year. It also comes with private email for a year, SSL and free Whois privacy. You get all that stuff for free. The cart automatically applies a coupon to checkout as long as you're doing a domain transfer. My domain was set to renew at 1and1 on the 12th of this month, but I transferred it. I believe this is their fifth year doing a sale like this. It's for a good cause. When you transfer your domain to them they make a donation to a company that's fighting for online rights and privacy (if you're into that sort of thing).
