    Hello,

    This is a trick I learned some time ago to get a domain name for just $1 from GoDaddy without having to look for promo codes all over the web. The trick is pretty simple: Head over to Google and search for the term "Godaddy". The first result will be an offer for a domain name at just $1.

    It works almost every month although some times it's not for $1 but for $2.49 but still it's a good deal.

    Let me know if this works for you.

    JBlogger,

    Thanks for this piece of information. I tend to find that the renewal fees end up costing more in the long run though in comparison to obtaining the domain name for a "standard" price and then renewing it at the same price every year.

    Plus, if you "secure" purchase the domain for several years, then that tends to be worthwhile too.

    Regards,
    Michael James Swan

    Michael James Swan I have used other registrars besides Godaddy over the years too and what you say about renewal fees are true with some of them. In the case of Godaddy the good thing is that if you search for a promo code for the renewal you are very likely to find one and save some money there too.

    I've been using GoDaddy for years and so far, I've been able to find a code that works for renewals almost every time. Only with my last renewal a month or so ago was I not able to find a deal. Now that I don't plan on buying more domains and I've whittled down to only a handful of sites, I won't need those codes too much in the future, I guess.

    Thanks for posting about the GoDaddy sites. I have been searching for affordable domains as I am about to buy my first and I'm happy to know this is an option. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! I really appreciate it.

    Thanks for the tip. It worked for me. $1 for a month is pretty ridiculous low. I was skeptical at first but this tip definitely worked for me. Would recommend others give it a try if they are looking at setting up a domain name anytime soon. I haven't searched for it lately but I assume this offer still stands.

    The Honey Browser extension plug-in for Firefox and Chrome will automatically bring up the best coupon deals for GoDaddy, Amazon, Apple, Best Buy and other sites.

    I don't often buy domains from GoDaddy. I only buy them when I can get them for 99 cents.

    I do this every time as well whenever I want to get a new domain. These companies usually offer discounts regularly so it's not that difficult to get one most of the time but sometimes you do have to wait. I also like searching for promos from competitors like Namecheap just to be sure I'm getting the best deal.

    JennyC, I once got a domain from Namecheap for only 50 cents. That's the lowest I've ever paid for a domain name and if I remember right it came with private registration so that was an even sweeter deal :LOL:

    Still the registrar I use the most is Godaddy and I always try to use this trick before even searching for a coupon code.

    Hmmmm....doesn't work for me, I just get the main site. Are you talking about an ad, or the search result?

    I do this all the time to get my domains at a great price. This was a great tip to share! Especially for those who have multiple websites.

    Benson when you search for "Godaddy" at Google the first result is actually an ad and it should be about getting a domain name for just $1. It may be different from you but I always get the offer I'm talking about.

    This is the search result I'm talking about: searching Godaddy at Google.

    Good luck!

    It actually works! But it went up to 1.49 instead of 1.00. Still better than 8-9-16 dollars.

    Thanks I am purchasing a domain this week and like the idea of saving a few dollars.

    If I recall, I think some people have mentioned that NameCheap is more expensive when it comes time for renewal. So saving 50 cent's vs. $1 up front can come back and bite you in the behind when the year is up and they want several dollars more than their competitors to renew it.

    I often see these $1 ad listings as well when I do a Google search for GoDaddy, but I tend to run into problems when I actually log into my GoDaddy account and try to purchase something - often times it reverts back to full price or doesn't include any coupon at all. I usually still have to try out several coupon codes before I can find one that works. It does help to filter your Google search results by time though so it's not showing sites with coupon codes from like three years ago.

    @OhioTom76 that has happened to me too a couple times but usually I don't have problems with the method I mentioned before.

    I believe the times I haven't been able to register a domain for $1 have been because there was a different sale for that domain or the domain name was labeled as premium.
