cheap domain registrar alternatives to Godaddy
You don’t have to GoDaddy.com for your domain name or web hosting. (I confess that I do use them on certain occasions.) Whether it’s a moral scruple or horror stories (cf NoDaddy.com), here’s a list of alternative domain name registrars that have competitive pricing (under $10 per year, in no particular order):
- http://fabulous.com [in Australia]
- http://1and1.com [in Germany]
Of course, not all domain registrars are equal. Cost shouldn’t be the only factor in choosing a registrar. Read the fine print and reviews for customer support, responsiveness, and extra features that may be included in registration (like DNS management, Whois privacy…), or discount bundles with web hosting.
