    Question GoDaddy: Raised Rates?

    I went to purchase a domain name from Go-Daddy yesterday (first time I've done it in a couple months). it cost a few dollars more than I rememered it.

    The additional cost seemed to come from the fact that you need to choose their "business deal" to get anonymous registration. In the past, this was a simple boxy that you checked that added something like $1.99 to your bill.

    The total cost was something like $18. In the Checkout process, the Business and Anonymous options were listed separately. I could remove the business option, bringing the price down to $14. I then used a coupon code to get the price around $12.

    What's going on here? Last time I did this with GoDaddy, it was a few dollars cheaper.

    Are you sure that you didn't select to register the domains for 2 years?

    Nope, I went with the one year. Here are screenshots showing the process:

    In order to get private registration, you have to first sign up for the Business Plan. The Business Plan and Private Registration are then itemized in your cart. Total cost: $18.19

    Then I removed the business plan. I kept the Privacy option. Total cost: $14.19

    I used a code to bring the cost down around $12. But that is still more than it cost me a couple months ago. What's going on?
