Where to reg 100+ domain names?

I have 100+ domain names I'd like to register, and I'm pretty sure I could squeeze a nice discount for that, so I'm asking you guys, if anyone knows a decent registrar that gives a discount on bulk domain registration.

The best I've found so far:
Bulk Pricing
1year, for:
com $8.75
net $8.50
org $9.25

P.S
Most of them gTLD.

    If you need a discount for a domain then you probably can't monetize it correctly and in which case you shouldn't buy so many together either.

    Domain registration is not the place to go bargain basement. Better to spend a little more to have all of your domain assets consolidated in one reliable registrar.

    I can't tell you how many horror stories I've heard of people losing their businesses because they tried to save a buck on their domains. Stop chasing pennies. Treat this like a real business, and build a long-term relationship with a reliable partner.

    When things do go wrong, a good partner will have your back.

      I have used Blue Razor for years and they charge a $9.95 annual fee for an account with discounted registration fees.

    Namecheap is good and they give a discount after 50 domains... you need to request it and they'll make the adjustments behind the scenes.

      Also, it would be wise to factor in the domain renewal cost. Unless you're going to be flipping all the domains, you're going to face a huge bill in a year to keep all of them active.

      Many registrars will give you a cheap first year as an enticement to join their service. There are lots fewer discounts available after the first year.

    Namecheap is a good option to buy domains in bulk and they are very reliable also. But the main problem is after the first year, there will be no discount for renewal. That u should keep in mind always.

    I find the GoDaddy Discount Domain Club to be worth their (currently) 7.50 a month fee for large numbers of domains. I've found lower priced registrars (when considering the monthly fee), but am satisfied with GD customer support.

    For the three you mentioned, .com is 8.29, .net is 7.99, and .org is 8.99 currently. They run sales for the club, so these prices may be lower. The monthly fee also gives you full access to their auctions.

    Godaddy is the cheapest option you have in front of you. But they will charge a heavy renewal fee next year. Unless you will use or flip all domains, i don't recommend you to register them all at once.

    ... but not if you remain a member of their Discount Domain Club. For someone with only a few domains, the monthly fee for the club isn't worth it, but the OP is considering 100+ names.

    Many registrars offer discounts for the first year as loss-leaders in the hope you will make up for their costs by paying a second year at a much higher price. That is when it is time for both of you to shop for transfer specials Registrars want you to move domains to them, so the same nice discounts one registrar will give to get your initial registration, another will give you to move your domain name.

    I know owners who change registrars every year for the specials, which makes sense for more than a handful of names but is not necessary when you have a hundred or more, as most registrars will negotiate better pricing if you're a larger customer and you ask them for better pricing.

    Hope this helps...

    Does anyone know of any alternative to godaddy's "discount domain club" ?
    Like if I have over 100 domains, what is the best price I can get for a dot com renewal ?
    Thanks.

    I would hope that you've made your plan work on a smaller scale before diving into a 100+ domain project.....

      $0.99 and $1.49 are 1 year price and you don't have to enter a multi year contract.

      Yes, renew price is normally higher. But you never know what the price will be in the future. I will say just find the cheapest one year contract for now and forget about renew, then after a year transfer all of them to whoever providing cheapest transfer price.
