Last time I tried this, I picked up a "coupon" for a 99c domain from register.com and hosted it on godaddy. Only register.com kept charging me $3.00/month for a year. When you add that up it's ridiculous price of like 36.00/year, what a scam. Luckily that credit card expired and I just never renewed the domain. I shopped around for my current host for a while (inmotionhosting) and got a free domain with my 1yr, but now I want a few others. Some are in competitive niches and I want the .co extension as that's all I can get but my host doesn't sell .co addresses. I'm looking to buy for less then 10.00/year, from someone who sells .co extensions, I have already used all my GoDaddy coupons so they won't give me any more discounts I don't think. Have you ever had that where you buy a cheap domain somewhere, host it somewhere else but get continued backcharges to your credit card? Also I am curious about privacy protection for my domain, I don't want people looking up my domain and seeing my First, Last name that I used with my credit card. I'll be starting a site related to my RL job and while I might be paranoid, I simply don't want my online name in any way associated with my IM efforts whatsoever. When I got my domain with IMhosting they didn't put my address and phone number on the domain, but even when I do a /whois search with privacy protection enabled it still shows my first and last name on the domain which I don't want. Cliffs: Would like to register a .co address on someone other then inmotionhosting, host it on my inmotion account, not pay any additional fees. I budget about 20-22 dollars for a year provided I get domain privacy registration, otherwise I pay no more then 10. I also read the fine print and won't buy a "cheap" 1 year domain at 3.00 only to be rebilled next year (and every year after) at 15-30 or whatever they want to charge (cough register.com domains at 36.00/year) Sorry to sound demanding I'm just frustrated with past experiences. Any help much appreciated!
