Anybody know of a good reliable under $8 domain registrar?

Nov 12, 2010 1:00PM PST

Hello Everyone,

Does anyone know of a good reliable domain registrar that is under $8?

No I had them for years and they raised their prices and I am sick of them anyway.

I am looking for legit, reliable, good priced, good reputation.

Thank you for your help.

Godaddy is not bad, but yes, they have raised prices. You may want to try out They currently have the 1st year special of $4.99 and $8.99 from there on. Have used them in the past and know many others who are using them. They're decent.

HI Don,

Godaddy are a bunch of sheisters and by raising their prices. I have tried their hosting services etc and all they do is try to charge you. I noticed and might give them a try in the future. Thanks again.

and if you look just a little bit online, they always have coupons that bring down a domain to about $7.

I think that is coupons for new registrations. I don't think for renewals. I will check to see, but I am kind of wanting to get a way from them.
