.com's $4.95 at Netfirms

17 replies
I have no clue how I got to this page rather than the usual sales page (usual page still has the usual price), but here are .com's for $4.95 a year with domain privacy through May, 2011. I know a lot of people prefer the .com's, so I thought I would pass this info along:

    They've been doing this for awhile as long as you had code: promo495 entered in the shopping cart.

    I hope they aren't getting rid of this totally on May 31st

    This has been going on for YEARS!

    I'm a Netfirms affiliate and usually promote domains for $6.95, but you can easily get the $4.95 promotion by typing in "cheap domains" into Google. Look at the top banner ads/sponser ads and you'll see one for Netfirms.

    They used to be my "go-to" registrar until they switched over to a new platform a few months ago that is still a little buggy in terms of ordering a domain.

    Otherwise, the free WHOIS protection is why 90% of my domains are registered through them, followed by NameCheap and Network Solutions.

    First time I heard to this. I'm getting my .coms really cheap but this price beats it. Will look into it further. One question, how's their service?

    I've never purchased domains from netfirms before, but since I've been fooling around with different registrars recently, I might just give them a try to see how good they are!

    Well if you plan to keep the domain for 3 years, the price wouldn't come out as cheap as namecheap's. Note this in the faded fine print at the bottom of the content.

    "Domain .com, .net and .org sale pricing is $4.95 for the first year. Domain will renew at $11.99 per year thereafter."

    It did sound good but that's the detail I was wondering about, and that detail wrecks the deal as far as I can see.

      What you could do if you're trying to get your 3 year domain cost as low as you possibly can is transfer it out at the end of the first year with the transfer coupon specials that are often offered by Godaddy and Namecheap.

      Ah, so there's the catch.

      Still, if you only plan to do something for a dotcom for a year, then this could get you up and running cheap.

    You're better off going through a company that charge you a flat $6.99 yearly instead of saving $2 for the first year then shelling out $10-$12 yearly after that IMO.

    netfirms is good on the price. they get ya when its time to renew...and the the coupon code doesnt work...also customer service on the phone is ok, depending on when you call, weight is north of 30 minutes...

    however for the price, certain parts of the business is worth it.

    They used to be great for registering domains. They got bought out by Tucows earlier this year, and ever since then, everything has gone to the crapper with them.

    Don't bother going with them. Go with someone else. You'll save yourself headaches.

    I haven't purchased domain from netfirms before. I might try it one of these days.

    PROMO495 has been going on for quite a while. I'm not sure, but even promo code LOVE might still work.

    Cheers,

    Sorry, but the math doesn't work unless you are looking for a kleenex domain (one you can throw away after use).

    $5 first year + $12 second year = $17, or $8.50 a year.

    Internet.bs: $7.49 a year, every year.

      You can always transfer to another. Also, some of the domains you may not intend to renew if they are not profitable.
