    Where do you register/purchase domains when you don't have a coupon code?

    I'm looking at getting 10 domains very soon, but would be interested in pricing for purchasing up to 25 at one time.

    PS - I apologize if there's a thread that answers this. I did search for a while before posting it here.

    I always go with namecheap. I've read a few people on here say that go daddy can shut down your site without a reason.

    I use namecheap to buy domains and hosting too.
    If you want to register with namecheap pm me and i can search for coupon code for you.
    dot com would be around $7++ after coupon code discount, you will save about $25 bucks for 25 domains for the first year.

    Internet.bs

    .COM - $7.49
    .NET - $6.99
    .ORG - $7.85

    They're definitely cheaper than NC. I've been with them for more than a year now with more than 200 domains registered, no problems so far.

    Netfirms is simply the best. Free whois privacy. Now domains are for around $5 each (with coupon code DOLLARDOMAIN). But if you will buy .INFO, godaddy is the only choie for $0.79 (and it offers free privacy for all your domains if you buy more than 5.)

    Much appreciated replies - I had no idea most of these options even existed.

    I'm assuming "whois privacy" is a mentioned in a few posts for reasons other than simply 'protecting personal information'. Perhaps the goal to hide the fact that we own many domains?

    So, instead of assuming I will simply ask those who mentioned it - Why is "whois privacy" a factor in your selection process?

    Namecheap! Look for a online coupon there is a always active one.

    $8.81 gets you a .com + FREE 1 year whois privacy.

    NameCheap

    Aremys: do they give you any kind of whois privacy (hiding your details)?

    bigleftie: there's just no reason for anyone knowing that I'm the owner of my domains - "rather safe than sorry" ;) Plus if you piss anyone off, you don't want it to come back and bite you in the ass later. Anonymity ftw.

    It seems Go Daddy offers free privacy if you register 6 or more domains at once - regardless of the type (coms, nets, infos, etc). Am I misunderstanding something?
