    Thanks Mark for sharing! This is amazing! Gonna jump on it and get a new domain for my blog instead of using a subdomain.

      As for naming my blog, I have been a lover of the colour “white”, which probably has to do with my minimalism views on design. Used to own until domain lapsed.

      And so with this offer, I got my chinese blog a new domain, —> Now in process to move my blog.

    Cool! Thanks :)
    Well, As far as the domain name goes, it depends on the genre you are dabbling into :)

    mine is just my first initial and last name. I lost the domain on my forum a few years back, so it may be about time to grab a new one or two now. Been looking for an opportunity to do so for awhile now, this may be it. Sadly to say, my other domains got taken over by spam harvesters after I lost my job 2 years ago.

    I still think godaddy (or companies like it) should allow you to “park it” for free to keep the domain spam harvesters from grabbing it. I don’t care what kind of domain it is, and how long its put up for auction at godaddy, the domain always gets taken over by spam harvesters, so anything godaddy (and others) can do to prevent that wold be a good thing. I’d rather give my domain for FREE to someone, just to keep it out of spam harvesters, thats just terrible.

    • bubazoo (213 comments.) says:

      I’m talking about when you loose your job, or file for chapter 13 or whatever, and you can’t pay for the domain anymore… I think godaddy should do something to prevent it from going to spam harvesters. the auction thing doesn’t work.

    Thanks a lot!
    I finally found a great deal to register my domain wpspecial with a .com extension.

    Thank you Mark for sharing this discount coupon

    Really awesome deal. Thanks SlickDeals !

    Gone to buy some cool domains :)

    Nice tip. But at this point I have no interest in getting a new domain registered on me.

    the name, well I wondered about what to get for a domain name, I wondered and thought about it. I was watching Otome wa boku ni koishiteru or in short: Otoboku and I loved the show.

    So, the name got pretty easy all of a sudden :)

    Getting a low cost start helps, and if you can’t get a site to bring the domain cost after the first year. perhaps it’s time to retire it.

    Small time operators unable to reach the adsense payout threshold could benefit from making a deal to place a bigger operator’s adsense ID on their site for some income sharing deal that pays off at perhaps a $10 threshold.

    I still pick names that flow when pronounced out loud, when I should be making big ass long tail names for SEO.

    Thanks for sharing this information….. Buy one new domain with this promo…. :D

    Still paying for domain registration. I get them for free from my web host. I only pay them the monthly fees for their space.

    • Nitin Kumar Jain (2 comments.) says:

      which web host??

    • sentabi (2 comments.) says:

      yeah, most of webhost today give free domain :) for 6,12,24 months payment

    • Hikari (79 comments.) says:

      Beware having your domain registered on your host. If you have problems with them, they will block your site AND your domain!

      For not important domains it is ok, but it’s not recommended to have all your site in only 1 company. Have 2 or 3 domains as backup, in different registrars. Have more than 1 company servicing your nameservers, and another company hosting your data.

      If you have problems with any of them, just move along. If you have problems with your host, get another one, restore your backup and point your domains to the new one, the old host will be doomed if you do that.

      I’ve seem a lot of cases where a hosting discussion ended in blocking the site and redirecting the domain to a parking site full of banners, and it was damn hard to get it back. When bad hosts have your full site on their hands, they feel powerful and wanna get everything from you, because they know while you don’t obey your site will be hopelessly down.

        If your domain is part of a package then you may be doubly screwed. I went through hell trying to wrestle my domain from Tripod a few years back. If it hadn’t been for a loophole I’d probably still not have it.

        • Clement (8 comments.) says:

          Thanks for the info. But if they blocked your domain and website like that, it is unethical.

  15. Hikari (79 comments.) says:

    There are sites that list these coupons, they are pretty common :P

    But Godaddy is evil, I prefere and namecheap or dynadot.

    I named my site… my name :P

    • DjZoNe (5 comments.) says:

      You’re right. I hate all of those sales, promotions, addtional service recommendations on godaddy site, and e-mails…

      I prefer too, it’s clean, elegant, not full of f*ckin’ commercials, cartoons, and godaddy girls, but give professional service, and free private whois.

      I’m currently transfering away all of my domains from Bob Parson’s hands..

  16. Duane Nason (1 comments.) says:

    now that’s a deal! as a web developer already with lots of domain names, i wish godaddy had deals like this when it’s time to renew the domains. – duane nason

  17. Andy Wittwer (1 comments.) says:

    It’d be nice if domains were more like property – once you buy it, it’s yours until you sell it. Who’s collecting all this money anyway?

    • Babs (37 comments.) says:

      Domains, sadly, are more like rentals. You just gotta hope you have a good landlord. :)

    I named my blog FabGrandma because I am a fab grandma.

  19. Mary Pat (1 comments.) says:

    When I bought my domain user, I was looking for something similar with “My 2 cents” but that was taken so I ended up using my 2 paws because I had 2 dogs and 2 paws is my way of saying my 2 cents! I know it’s kind of weird but I love it!

  20. Alan Kellogg (1 comments.) says:

    My blog used to be at “”. Now it’s at “”. Why? Because I forgot to update my contact info with my then host and domain registrar, and my domain registration lapsed. I didn’t have the money to “retrieve” it and I decided to wait until “” was available again.

    GoDaddy got it. GoDaddy sets up bots to grab up lapsed domains. Especially domains that have been registered for some time. Such as “”, which I first registered back in 2000 or so.

    Friends don’t let friends register their domains with GoDaddy.

    • Babs (37 comments.) says:


      My hosting provider had a reseller account with GoDaddy, didn’t like the way the company was heading, and told them they wouldn’t be renewing the account when it was time. Go Daddy immediately pulled the plug and never offered a refund. :(

      My domain was one of those that ended up in GoDaddy’s hands because of this. First, it “expired” two months early. Second, when I tried to transfer it back over to my hosting company it took two attempts because the domain mysteriously became locked during the first attempt.

      So, IMHO GoDaddy can Go___________.

    Um, code doesn’t work.

  22. titan (1 comments.) says:

    it still works?

  23. Kate Mag (4 comments.) says:

    you must buy their service like hosting,private registration with the domain to get that price. That isn’t slick deal

  24. Blog Guy (1 comments.) says:

    Great offer pity it’s about a week too late :(

    Could temp me to buy a domain at those prices.


  25. Andrew@BloggingGuide (90 comments.) says:

    Sometimes it is really hard to choose web hosts. Some may give it cheap but they may lack in quality service. Others may be expensive but they give good, quality service. It’s really best to go with something that you have proven and tested yourself and to share it to others. But then again, experiences with one company is not always the same with every person.

  26. Deepak Jain (1 comments.) says:

    Just for info., this coupon is not valid any more!

  27. Andrew Edmonds (9 comments.) says:

    Too late!!! arrrghhh :( Had a couple of domains I wanted to purchase but I guess it won’t break the bank to pay a few more dollars.

  28. David (1 comments.) says:

    I tried the code but it didn’t work so I was too late. I ended up using this code


    and that got me the domains I wanted for circa $7 so about $5 off the listed price.

    still good value anyway

    In life there are no shortcuts – firstly : You get what you pay for. Secondly : Buyer Beware. . After learning my lesson with going for a “cheaper host” ; buying a 3 year contract – and discovering upon the second week that they had the worst servers on the planet , crashes and database errors occurring on an almost daily basis ( yes , no exaggeration ! ) and bad service to boot ! I figured that saving 2 lousy dollars would not make or break the bank . If you have professional websites or blogs which you have put so much time and effort into designing and coding and all which goes with creating a professional site – then you cannot skim on the production end- you either go all the way & full throttle or you simply get on Blogger and be content with that! After threatening legal action ( to my ‘ old’ host ) , I was finally able to regain my domain back from those money hungry vultures ( whom shall remain nameless ), and was able to transfer it over to Hostmonster , which is a great host – service is excellent and so is their customer service – and am so much happier since then . My other site ( the fist one ) I bought the domain from who are def the very best . What am I paying for the one domain I transferred ? Just 1 dollar more than I was paying at my old host – and went through all that stress ! wheeww !!!

    Good luck to everyone looking to register domain names and remember : ” All which glitters is not Gold , and If it sounds too good to be true – then it def ISN’T !

    crazy cheap.

    luckily when picking my domain name my own name wasn’t taken.

    really sad, i wish i read your blog a few days ago :(
