Godaddy wants $30/yr for a Private domain registration *renewal*. All the coupon codes I find are for NEW registrations -- esp. $0.99 coupons.
I have searched and found no discount code that works with renewals -- even when it says it does.
Can you give me a link to a $0.99 coupon for REnewals that actually works? Or even a working discount code?
I just called godaddy. The CS says there is rarely any discount for renewals; and offer me a 10% discount if I agree to renew for 10 yrs.
I don't maintain a web site and only use the domain for stable email addresses (don't like web mails). Does that mean I don't need domain hosting? Anyway, is $30/yr about the general norm for domain renewal w/ privacy?
johnmaldonado said: What is the TLD that you are planning to renew? Not sure why private registration costs $30
I have .com domain + private registration, it comes around $10 in both godaddy and Namecheap + $3 for Private registration
YOu will not get coupon for renewals, but, whatever price you are saying, it is too high for renewal. Godaddy charges around $10 for renewals. I have an .org to renew; and godaddy wants 19.99 for domain renewal and 9.99 for privacy. And when I renewed a .com, it was basically the same. I have never renewed at the rate you have. How do you get those rates?
Do you have numerous domains and there4 gets a discount? Or maybe the $19.99 include web hosting that I never use?
i am not sure about .org, but, the price is ridiculously high. you can not transfer the domain to another registrar either, since transfer needs at least more than a week. As you said, please check that price includes domain+hosting. you have no option right now, you have to renew that, next time, you can transfer the domain in well advance to Namecheap.

How is google's tech support? I know at least initially I would need help for transferring and setting up the "pointers" (or whatever it is called) to point my domain to a new location. I don't know what kind of thing might go wrong after that that I would need Google's tech support -- if I don't maintain a web site.
