How to have this price for two years in a row?
The trick is to combine:
- Buy cheap domains for the first year (current deals include GoDaddy.com for 2 USD or buying from a lesser known registrar for 1 USD).
- In the second year wait for a thing like Black Friday or Cyber Monday, which should give you a “transfer to us” option of 1-3 USD (I used NameCheap.com).
Combining these two should give you a .com domain for around 2-6 USD for two years.
The offer is far greater than any regular individual offer you might get. (as I know of)
P.S. #2: Last evening I went to buy oliii.com from GoDaddy.com for 2 USD. Previous to this, I had bought audthink.com. The thing is, you could typically only could have bought a single domain for 2 USD (one per client). But if you made your shopping cart without being logged in, applied the discount, when you logged in with your address & card data, the basket still remained at 2 USD. I did 2 or 3 tries like that. Then I came to buy the domain. Surprise! It costed 4,000 USD. Four thousand. I looked on the Internet and I found Network Solution were selling domains for 1 USD. I bought the domain for 1 USD, instead of the requested 4,000 of GoDaddy. Anyhow, bad practice (changing it quickly). Very bad.
