How our pricing can be so low
We pride ourselves on providing the lowest everyday domain prices on the Internet. We are able to offer such low prices due to our long focus on domains and nothing else. We do not incur the expensive overhead associated with the infrastructure, staff and promotion of other ancillary services. We do not need to inflate our pricing to cover costs such as expensive celebrity spokespeople, vanity phone numbers, Super Bowl advertising, or non-domain-related technical and support staff. There are certain costs associated with running an effective domain registrar, but we are fanatical about avoiding non-essential expenses which allows us to keep our prices so low. We are in the domain business like no other!
We also do not utilize the backend platform of any other registrar. Many of our most notable competitors are reliant on systems developed and supported by third-parties. This has many potential problems and drawbacks including having to wait for upgrades, multiple parties being involved in domain disputes and other possible issues, and, most importantly, the fact that third-parties must be paid for their services which inflates the pricing to customers.
Spending more on a domain elsewhere does not make it better. Registering a domain with us is no different than anywhere else... you register the domain of your choice, for the period of time you want, and we do this like anywhere else - just for less money and no nickel-and-diming for services that should be free!
Don't just take our word for it... compare our prices to those of our competitors!
