    Lightbulb FOUND: Very Cheap Registrar for .info Domains

    Just found that the registrar domaindiscover.com has .info domains for $0.88/year. I believe that is the lowest price anywhere in the world.

    Not renewal. The $0.88 price is for new domain registration and have many free services included in the price.

    I'd be a tad concerned about a registrar who hasn't even bothered to register their own domain for the next twelve months:

    Domain created on 18-Apr-1999
    Domain expires on 17-Apr-2007
    Last updated on 06-Apr-2006

    Think... and think again.

    The cheapest .info registrar, on the long run, is http://stargate.com , hands down.

    You can have domain for 10 years for $19.90 (that's $1.99*10).

    What is the problem about that, it is still registered..

    EMARKMONITOR (Which is a private registrar buying domains for some of the largest online companies in the world : Google, Yahoo, etc..) have such info about their domain:

    Domain : eMarkMonitor.com
    Created : 29-Apr-1999
    Updated : 06-Nov-2006
    Expires : 29-Apr-2007

    You can believe me they're professionals.
    I don't think you can judge some company looking at their domain expiration date.

    *my two cents*

    FWIW, we renew domains on a yearly basis, specifically so we can move registrars without losing a ton of money if for some reason we are unhappy with their service.

    I hope that doesn't make us shady

    Our main domain is registered for the next ten years.
    Having invested so much time in developing it, we're not interested in saving pennies, and risk losing it, by hoping there may be a cheaper Registrar down the line.
    It is secure in our hands, and will maintain the quality our visitors appreciate.

    Keep thinking and maybe the penny will drop.

    That company (domaindiscover) looks like a reseller. If you do a DNS lookup, their DNS servers are ns1.tierra.net and ns2.tierra.net. Going to tierra.net shows a web site that looks exactly the same...

    Personally, I'd rather buy a domain from DomainSite... Even though they cost more ($1.99 per .INFO domain), their normal prices are a bit cheaper ($6.99), and I've had some good experiences with DomainSite (their technical support is awesome).
    And while we're mentioning the expiry date of domains, here's DomainSite's:

    Expiration Date: 2010-11-23 11:56:36
    Creation Date: 1998-08-25 00:00:00


    "I don't think you can judge some company looking at their domain expiration date."
    Sure, that's reasonable for normal sites, but for a domain registrar? They'd probably get the domains for quite cheap (they can absorb the cost).

    No, but you can lose money. If I'd paid for 3-5 years with my original registrar a couple years ago, the difference in domain name value between then and now would add up to hundreds of dollar, maybe even into the thousands

    I just made a dummy order and pricing of $1.99 per year (NOT only first one!) is still valid.

    I have the same stargate account, that price only for new registration, so you can register to the max of 10 years for $1.99/year. When you want to renew, it charge $6.95. So, I think it's better to register it for 10 years in the first place.. :-)
    Go to your set pricing for .info domain, it said your package cost as:

    New Registration (Per year) :$1.99
    Renewal (Per Year) : $6.95
    Transfer (Per Year) : $5.95
    Restore : $149.95

    This is exactly what I am trying to tell... You'll have this price nowhere else.
