    Even though they are cheaper. I still like godaddy. I buy all my domains there. Never hosting though. I host my own stuff. 11.99$ really isn't much for a domain name. Just skip a meal out one week

    Be careful with 1and1. I've heard some bad stories about people not being able to transfer their domains from there. You sometimes get what you pay for. Also, some registrars renew prices are huge. Yahoo offer a 1.99 .com domain for newbies, but charge 35.00 to renew!

    I pay $6.95 for a .com/.net/.org. I think that is the cheapest in my search thus far. The coupon deals are scams in my opinion as the following year your domain will increase in pricing.

    resellerclub is the best as far as domain safety is concerned. rest all keep the domains for ransom, specially godaddy.
    Just for the information of all that .com .net .biz are going to be costly around $1 from 14 Jan. 2012.
    Good luck

    You might want to reconsider GoDaddy - many people are boycotting them because of their involvement in SOPA. I moved my five domains away from them this week.

    godaddy retracted their support of SOPA after customers voiced their opinions about their announcement.

    However, it looks like their retraction didn't help much, as they lost over 21,000 domains: http://tech.slashdot.org/story/11/12...ins-in-one-day

    Godaddy appears to have lost 37,000+ domains so far http://www.itproportal.com/2011/12/2...ue-sopa-stand/

    To be honest, GoDaddy is barely cheaper than plenty of alternatives like Namecheap (where I host my domains) and they have shown their contempt for general niceties for a while and their customer support is slow so there is little reason to host there at all. If they are pro-breaking the internet with SOPA (whether or not they have reversed their position due to public backlash) then they don't deserve the business of any web developer.

    Godaddy do not sell low cost domains. it is true that the prices are going up from Jan 2012. A cheap could be considered a price of $10 - $11 per year.

    That is how much GoDaddy is selling there's for. They have a 9.99 sale right now. Mainly because they f***ed up on the sopa thing.

    According to Google, it's about $7.50.

    Of course, using an Indian hosting package for a US-based website targeting a US-based audience may not be the smartest thing to do, because Google does look at where a website is hosted when ranking a site.

    It is very possible that Hioxindia has servers in the US. Their own website is actually hosted in the US. Lots of Indian hosts rely on US based servers (they're more cost effective and the quality might be better as well I suppose).

    I would say be careful with the coupon codes and promos. After the first year you'll be paying FULL price which is $12-$14.

    1dollar domain is the most cheapest, I guess. They are selling domain names for $0.99 only. But this offer is only for first year from second year you have to pay may be $15 per year.

    As you want to buy domains for fun. So I thinks buying domains from 1dollar domain will be cost effective to you.

    Name.com or godaddy. But just for fun ... doesn't sound like a good business ( even if it is cheap )

    The whole SOPA ordeal made GD lose face big time. I wouldn't resign with them and if I did even have a domain with them, I would transfer out ASAP.
