  • Which Registrar to use?

    Posted by Caron Mooney on March 9, 2021 at 10:23 am

    When registering a domain it looks like so many people do it for virtually nothing. But I’ve read that when you enter your second year, they make it very expensive. Can you advise please?

    On the average, it shouldn’t run you much more than $10-$12 per year to keep a domain. I don’t consider that very expensive. Yes, sometimes they’ll offer coupon codes and stuff to entice you in, but still….. the renewals are cheap.

    Oh, and I use Namecheap.com, personally.

    I’m also a fan of NameCheap – used them for over a decade and they always worked well for me. Make sure you get on their email newsletter; they always have transfer coupons available, and a few times a year will also offer coupons for renewals (usually around their birthday in mid-October) so you can often save a little money and register your domain ahead of time then.

    These days, I use CloudFlare for all my domain registrations since I’m using them for DNS anyway, and they now offer domain registrations at wholesale pricing (zero markup above their costs.) If you only have 1 or 2 domains, then saving $2-4 per domain isn’t that big of a deal, but when you have a lot of domains registered it can add up.
