Can Anyone Recommend A Company With Better Long-term Prices Than GoDaddy?

By Peter Egan Sr · Posted on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 · Tagged in Business Website



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.

I have been with Hostrocket for years. Their system seems to be always up and available. They have 24hr phone tech support that FIXES any problems usually on the spot. Their domain fees are about the same as most out there but their hosting fees are very competitive. Since I don't have a huge, high traffic web site, I use their shared hosting that is CHEAP. I use Cheapdomains.com for domain renewals.

I had the same problem a few years back. I manage about 100 domains and I moved them all over to EnomCentral.com The pricing has been stable for several years now.

The interface is different from Godaddy, but all the functionality and control is there.
