    Cheapest Domain Name Registers

    Hello,

    Does anyone recommend any cheap domain name registrar?

    Yahoo registers a domain name for $2.99 but I think they limit to 1 domain per customer.

    iPower registers for $2.95 with a limit of 50 domains.

    Is there any other registrars that register domain name for cheap without purchasing additional service ( register domain name only).

    I stand by http://www.namecheap.com. I have names with a dozen registars, and their interface is probably the easiest to use (in my opinion). With a coupon, you can get a name for about $7. http://www.1and1.com is also pretty good. Anything under $6 is usually a promotion or a loss-leader, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    No, you do not have to signup for anything to get a domain name for cheap at iPower. However, they are pretty sorry at domain name registration. It'll take them 12-24 hours to have it done, while it is instant at namecheap.com and godaddy.com.

    Domain name registration is immediate. Setting it up takes 12-24 hrs. Does NC & GD set it up immediately, or do they just park it?

    I'm not sure about GD, but NC is immediate. From the registration to change dns and etc.

    As for iPower, I registered a domain name with them and 10 min later, it still has not been registered. I went to NC and registered the same domain and got it immediately.

    Then I went back to Ipower and told them that they dont need to register ( they couldnt anyway), since I registered it at another place.

    But cant you create multiple yahoo ids and register domains using these different ids?

    People must take care while registering the domains - 1. whether you are getting all rights of your domain or not, 2. whether registrar is forcing other services to buy or not, 3, whether you are allowed to transfer your domain or not, 4. whether prices are freezed or you will ask more price at next renewal.

    If you will not care these points, you are certainly in trouble in future.

    Avoid registerfly.com.
    In case you will need any support from them you are doomed.
