Domain name sale – GoDaddy

15 06 2007


GoDaddy
is having a domain sale ending today: .com domain names are $6.95. To get the deal use code gdm0606c in the shopping cart.

These deals come out periodically, but I thought that this was an especially good one for people that don’t have bulk registrar accounts (you’re basically getting the same deal here). GoDaddy is a great registrar, and has one of the best customer service operations I’ve ever seen. I also like that they don’t have an 800 number – few companies of this size go with this strategy – so that they aren’t even passing this expense back to the users!

Anyone that had major domain name issues in their RegisterFly account also greatly appreciates GoDaddy:

“On May 29, 2007 Go Daddy, a competing registrar, announced that through an agreement with ICANN, it was taking over the entire portfolio of more than 850,000 generic top-level domain (gTLD) names held by RegisterFly. The names would move to newly created accounts at GoDaddy and they would notify Registerfly customers by email. GoDaddy and ICANN will not release terms of the agreement but have said that GoDaddy is not buying Registerfly. Go Daddy Press release May 29, 2007[16] ICANN plans to continue legal action agains Registerfly for it’s continued noncompliance of the court ordered injunction.[17]”
