How to get half-price domains at GoDaddy, without coupons.

17 replies
I just discovered a pretty nifty way to get cheap domains at GoDaddy, no coupons required - I'm feeling generous today (and it's my 100th post), so i thought I'd share it with you.

One thing that bugs me about Godaddy is that when they offer domains on "sale" - AKA, $10 .NETs, etc - you can't use a coupon on them. This actually makes the end price more expensive for those of us that frequently use coupons.

But, since GoDaddy must be Godaddy, they always offer upsells - if you have foo.net in your cart, they'll offer you foo.org for $4.99 (half the "discounted" price if you buy it outright.

So, you want foo.org? Put foo.net in your cart, take the upsell, then delete foo.net and keep foo.org for $4.99.

    I haven't tried it myself, but it sounds like a shopping cart error they need to fix.

    But hey, I can't blame you (or anyone else) of taking advantage of it while you can.

      I'd say it's just a result of Godaddy's obsession with upsells. Play the system.

      BTW, if anyone is buying a .COM, don't buy it through the regular site - go through a Google ad and get a new COM for $2.99 per year (for up to ten years).

        can you elaborate? I haven't seen an Ad for what you're talking about.

        Those are two great tips for saving money on domains.

        I'm saving this to my computer for future reference.

        Thanks

          Hi John,

          here you could see a whole bunch of GoDaddy codes, including $2.95 codes you were looking for. By the way, those $2.95 codes do allow multi-year registrations, so you could get 10 years .COM registration for about $30. Some codes may not work for certain countries, however most work fine in US/CA/UK

    I work for a big company and sometimes they forget who their customers are. It is all about the wallet to them and the stock holders. But wherever you found the AD for $2.99, please let me know and I am on it like white on rice.

    This definitely does work grand! I got my domain name for my release in 2 weeks:

    GPlacesGold.com

    for $2.99 using that technique.

    Woot!
