I have a reseller account from Godaddy. I have to pay around 100.00 a year to get the discount. I have had one of these on and off for around 7 years. I can give you the discount I get, if you want. I think it costs $8.45. I think I should be able to get them cheaper though. It wasnâ€™t that long ago I could get them for 4.99
Remember, cheapest is not always the best.
You get more discounts the more years you register at a time. Not a whole lot though.
If you could, please take a look at my site and tell me what you think. @Paramount Servers
One good thing about Godaddy is that they are Big. They process transactions quickly and comply with ICANN I believe. They were not too far away from the break up of the people that invented the program that recognizes alphabetical characters and corresponds them with the actual numerical digits of IP addresses & the Http:// protocol extensions. They also have most of the available extentions such as .tv and country codes.
The only real criticisms I have had personally and investigated are that they are reluctant to release Dot Names. This is only an issue if you want to sell a name, & if the new owner wants it registered somewhere else. The other gripe is that their hosting is not as accommodating as a company that is predominately geared for Hosting.
Changing Name Servers and redirecting / forwarding / & masking are not problems.
This may be more info than you needed, but I hope this is helpful.
If it's not, you could also look at my @ Domain Name Info
I can't believe that my site is Number one for over 3 weeks in a row in MSN for the search term "website development"
I wish more people used MSN search.
