GoDaddy Renewal Fees Too High, Alternative Sought
GoDaddy domain renewal fees have gotten too high for anyone with more than a few domains. I am seeking to transfer my portfolio to a different registrar with more stable, year-to-year renewal costs. Ideally, this company would offer similar hosting features, like 1-click installs of Wordpress and other top CMS and website software.
Hi, I've been with GoDaddy for years, loved their specials, love their 1-click software install of all the latest and best CMS systems and other website software types.
Problem is, they raise prices substantially every year, and I'm looking to transfer my portfolio minus maybe one domain to a registrant that doesn't use the bait-and-switch, using low prices to lure people in, then increasing them annually such that they're well above market value (for a renewal) by year three.
I used to get around this be owning my own registrar, but the losses I took on the business were about equal to the savings on the domain renewals.
Does anyone know of registrar/hosting company that offers steady, stable renewal fees that either remain the same price or increase in accordance with inflation/deflation and cost-of-living?
The ability of said company to allow me to easily set up wordpress sites, modify nameservers and manage the hosting account is important too. I'm not as tech savvy as my career success would tend to indicate. I've gotten by for 15 years on hard work, coupled with the fact that companies like GoDaddy, Weebly and others make it nice and easy for people like me who know HTML enough to modify an existing template and edit a document but not well enough to design a site.
Any good advice would be greatly appreciated, and I would like to thank all who answer in advance.
