    Name.com often has $5.99 Friday specials but anyone selling for less than ~$7.50 is selling at a loss. Dotster sometimes has a Happy Hour.

    Since Verisign charge the .com registrars $6.86 for each domain, selling for $7 means that the domain registrar has made a whole 14 cents on the deal. Once you deduct off their costs for setting up the process that allows you to interact with them in the first place that probably equates to a loss. They'd therefore need to overcharge you for something else in order to stay in business.

    Try whiz.com or Name.com.

    .in, .info, .org are available for $3 or $4 [i'm not sure] .

    Or use discounts coupons to get some discounts on domain purchase.

    What has that to do with the price of .com domains.

    That's like someone asking what colour the sky is and getting an answer that grass is green.

    But, if you are seriously going to get a .com domain, it would be best to look at the quality of the registrar, not the price. Some domain registrars do not offer privacy for free meaning that anyone can look up your address, email, phone number etc. I use name.com because it has free domain privacy.

    How can they when they have to pay Verisign $6.86 for the domains to start with. You are not going to find .com domains that cheap unless you have to buy something else with it to get that price - in which case you are being overcharged for the something else.

    If they were to sell you a dot com domain for $4.95 then after deducting the fee payable to Verisign they have $1.91 less money than before selling you the domain.

    I did some research for you William and it seems like you might be out of luck... there are some offers you can get (stuff like coupon discounts) which are good for a year, but then the price goes back up to what it initially was... arguably you could bounce between "offers" and registrars year on year, but you would be better off just finding a decent normal registrar which offers domains at the $8 usual amount (surely $8 isn't too much!).

    Will I suppose you will be able to do that with any company which offer discounts. But that will not guarantee you that next year you will have the same price for this service

    For .com's, $10.69/yr on godaddy, with a deal on 6 or more domains @ $6.95 (for the year)

    Personally, around the $10 mark has always seemed reasonable to me.

    Now, there are free subdomains available from various outlets, but there's no guarantee on ownership, uptime, etc.

    With domains costing the registrars $6.86 There must be some catch to the $6.52 proce - after all the registrar isn't going to pay the other 34 cents themselves for nothing.

    ANY price under $6.86 means that the registrar is subsidising the price of the domain by charging you more for something else.

    well, honorable mentor, i appreciate your reply, but what i said about 6.52 including ICANN.20, same as renewal price, if you should mention something else, that will be reseller package price, but i think if you are really in the domain names' business line, it will worth your deposit.
