I am sure this has been asked before but probably not like this. Okay, Here's the question and the challenge. Domain Names can get expensive especially when you buy a lot and they come up for renewal. So, I have been searching for the best deal out there and so far this is what I have found. 1. Yahoo - They offer a $2 dollar registration fee. Problem! They whack you when your names come due for renewal. The price is like 12.95 for the renewal that way they make up the 2 dollar incentive. I know, Godaddy, is fair priced but again when you have a lot of names it gets expensive. So, 2. What is the cheapest way to register names, don't need any bells and whistles just the straight registry. When looking at this site http://domain-registration.domaintools.com/index.php?o=cid&s=a&page=12 It seems the standard it 6.95 as the lowest price? Is that as low as registry's can go? Is there a way to bypass the sites and go directly to the source and register names? How come companies like GoDaddy can go register domain names at the main location and people can't, they have to go through companies like GoDaddy? Is there someone that registers for 2 and keeps renewal at 2? Let me know your thoughts and what you have found out on the subject?
