A lot has already been covered at ShoutMeLoud about various website hosting providers and a lot of reviews could also be found here.

So how do you pick the best and cheap domain names registrar?

Buy Cheap Domain Names

What most of the internet users that I’ve come across do is that they go with the same domain host for their domain registration. Although there isn’t any rule that your domain registrar and host shouldn’t be the same, but you should get the best individually. If you can find a good host someplace and a great domain registrar someplace else, you should stick your guns with it. This also has a security advantage, as if someone get access to your hosting account, your domain name will still be safe.

A little is being talked on the internet about cheap and good domain registrars and people usually tend to go with whatever seems plausible or what your competitor has gone with. Choosing a good cheap domain registrar could be a daunting task – Which one should you choose? Who has the best mix of pricing, services and support? etc. But not if someone is there to guide you. This article is intended with the sole purpose of shedding some light on the cheapest and best domain names registrars on the internet right now. Below are 5 of the best and cheapest domain names registrars that provide you with quality performance and support for a cheap deal.

Cheap Godaddy Domains

The daddy of all domain registrars – or so they say! They are the most controversial domain registrar on the planet and controversy seems to find a way through them every time. GoDaddy however managed to get its reputation back up after a major failure back in 2012. GoDaddy makes .com domains cost $1.99 per year, but in reality, it costs $10 for the first year and $15 for every year after that, that’s a lot of additional hidden prices. They are still arguably the leaders of domain name registrars and there’s no reason you shouldn’t be checking out what they have to offer.

Bonus: Quick tips to choose a good domain registrar

  1. Consider pricing and value thoroughly.
  2. Make sure you’re going through an ICANN-registered registrar.
  3. Check out for hidden fees and fees for transferring or releasing.
  4. Check to see if you get any Email accounts/Email forwarders.
  5. Consider add-on services like free who.is guard.
  6. Check policy for domain transfer. For example, many registrar like Godaddy will not let you transfer domains outside of Godaddy for 60 days.

    Right Now, I am using BigRock as my domain registrar and web hosting . I have no issue till now every thing is running smoothly .

  2. Arthur Andrade says

    This post is excelent. Some days ago I found 1and1.com where I could registered one domain name at only 99 cents; unfortunately that promo is only available once and only for the first year. Regards.

  3. Prasanna says

    Hi there,

    Am using Godaddy.com for my all three websites, till now I didn’t get any trouble with them.

    My concern is the renewal charge seems be costlier than other domain registrars.

    Thanks for sharing, have a nice day.


  4. Shubham Khatwani says

    I have using NameCheap and Godaddy, and they are realiable and works good for me. Now I would give a try to Others also.

  5. pavithraravindar says

    i have domain in bigrock. and never faced any problem. anyway i will try these also for my new blogs. thanks for your post.

  6. Nishant Bazzad says

    Really great list to check out. Currently, I am using Godaddy and Bigrock. One more thing that I didn’t know before this post is that ShoutmeLoud also provide Domain selling services. Great.

  7. says

    Thank you for interesting list – I’ve been using GoDaddy for 5 years already and think it rather reliable provider, but unfortunately it does not have all regional domain extensions.

  8. Anonymous says

    GoDaddy is only cheap for new domain registrations. When you come to renew, you will realize that its time to transfer out. You will not find a renewal coupon because GoDaddy discontinued renewal coupons. Furthermore if you want privacy at godaddy, you will have to pay $9.99 while it is free at other hosts. Godaddy is slowly losing customers. Its popular for people with more money than time and newbies.

  9. Sagar Desai says

    You use bustaname.com domain searching tool, it offers to register domain on Godaddy for mere 120Rs. Bigrock is cheaper but it always have problems and support is also not competent.

  10. Debarpan says

    Am having two domains on godaddy and quite satisfied with their services.Most important thing about godaddy is it’s easier to get coupon codes of godaddy to registrar new domains.

  11. Pritam says

    Hey Srikant ,

    Nice list buddy , now I am using GoDaddy as recommended by many.
    Next time I’ll go for Domain.com , but is it trusted ?
    Because I’ve never anyone buying domain from there !

  12. Dean Saliba says

    I go with GoDaddy and I always do a Google search for discount coupons and that means I normally get my domain for about $2. :) Perfect for someone like me who might not know if the project is going to have legs and doesn’t want to invest lots of money into it at the start.

  13. Shathyan Raja says


    Thanks for sharing some of the best and cheap domain registration companies. Usually I do buy from Godaddy and some times from NameCheap. It is always I look for the coupon codes and which ever gives me the lowest would go for it.

  14. Sagar Rai says

    Hey Srikanth,

    I used to buy through godaddy because they are low-priced and privacy is included in the domain price. Conversely GoDaddy has come up with offers with lowest cost.

  15. Sudip says

    GoDaddy is just great. 1. reliable 2. Good support 3. Cheap
    They also provide great discounts. What do you think?

  16. Ankur Upadhyay says

    Right now, I am using Go Daddy and Big Rock as my domain registrars and I have faced no problem till now. I won a .net domain from Big Rock in a giveaway some days back too.

    I didn’t know about ShoutMyDomain. I will give it a try for sure next time.
