Domain names are the base of anything you do online or planning to do. If you are thinking about creating a personal blog or an ecommerce website or may be any kind of portfolio website, domain name is first thing you must need to have for your any online need. Though there are already many domain register out there fighting for earning more money (like GoDaddy, NameCheap etc.), there are other not so popular companies who provides the same domain name at the cheapest price available on internet.
If you have past experience of purchasing domain names, you would have seen that companies like GoDaddy, NameCheap, NetFirms provides coupon codes especially for .com and .net domain registration at an insane price point. GoDaddy’s 99 cents .com campaign is the most popular among all. But the marketing game lies in the long term model. You see after 1 year, the renewal price these companies charges to you every year is insanely higher and hence they sell their domain name at loss for the 1st year and then on they just keep earning profit.
If you think why these companies does these kind of things, then the simple answer to earn more and more profit. You might think what if someone purchase the domain with GoDaddy or NameCheap or with any big brand like these and then on next year transfer the domain to someone else. Yes, you can do that, but trust me a very tiny amount of people actually knows how to successfully transfer any domain name from one register to another as it involves many complicated steps.
I’m pretty sure that you might be hearing this name for the first time in your life (if you haven’t used their service earlier) and kind of skeptical about it. That’s perfectly alright because I was skeptical too before using InternetBS as my domain register as they do not runs any polished marketing campaign like GoDaddy and others and neither they look super polished like other. But after I first used their service looking at their ridiculously cheap domain name pricing back in 2011, I never looked back to any other provider.
Enough Talk. What about Pricing?
Yah! This is the part I am more excited about. You see unlike other Domain Name provider who sells domain name at an extreme price point and then lure you with some sort of discount code for the first year, InternetBS doesn’t believe in such philosophy. The pricing table they have on their site is already priced ridiculously low and reasonable, so don’t expect any sort of coupon luring.
But yes they have a lower price option if you pay them via wire transfer and not by using credit/debit cards or PayPal. That makes sense as with online payment option they have to pay a certain fees too, but with wire transfer no such fee involve and you can get even lower price. Anyways here is the domain pricing table of InternetBS with popular TLDs and you can compare it with your existing domain name provider to check how much more you are money you are paying to them and may be think about transferring your domain from your existing provider.
What about Support?
Though there is no phone support available as they sell products at a very reasonable price, but you will always get 24 X 7 X 365 Chat Support. So, if you ever face any issue you don’t have to feel alone. You always get chat support whenever you want.
But frankly speaking after you setup a domain name for the first time with all your name-servers and other stuffs, you will barely need any more support from them in future, but even if you do need, you are covered with that too.
Any extra features?
Well yes, there are a few nifty features which InternetBS provides for free if you register your domain name with them. Some of them are:
- Free Private WHOIS (Unlike others it will remain free as long as you use InternetBS, not just for 1 year)
- Free: internet domain name parking
- Free: Realtime internet domain name contact/registrant update
- Free: DNS Server list update
- Free: DNS Management
- Free: 50 URL Forwarding
- Free: Subdomains URL Forwarding
- Free: Catch-all URL Forwarding
- Free: Geographic URL Forwarding
- Free: 100 Email Forwarding
- Free: Subdomain Email Forwarding
- Free: Catch-all Email Forwarding
- Free: internet domain name PUSH
Though you will not use most of the above things (except the Private WHOIS) as they are covered by your hosting / server, but you still got the option.
If you are a wealthy person who have enough money to dispose then these might not be a big deal for you but if you are just starting up a new blog or business and you are under tight budget, every penny you save is valuable. So, don’t waist you money on these Domain Corporates instead register your domain with cheap domain register like InternetBS (internet.bs) and always remain profitable, not just for the 1st year.
