    I've been using NameCheap all these years haha. I was considering GoDaddy at a point in time because they were cheaper, but I'm not sure if prices have been raised since.

    namesilo looks cheaper for .com registrations but I'm worried if that's just to get people to sign up and buy with 'em.

    Edit: Looks like there's a NameCheap sale right now. $6.98 is an amazing price.

    i've used namesilo for quite a few years, no complaints, no upsell crap, no massive renewal costs.

    If I extended my domains month ago and transfer to namecheap, do I loose those 11 months, or only extend by namecheap once domain expires by original registrar ?

    I transferred a bunch of domains from Namecheap and Ionos to cloudflare domain registry just last month.

    You can grab a couple from ionos for $1, wait 6 months and transfer to cloudflare. Back in the day, I'll get it from Yahoo and transfer to another registrar before it rolls over into the second year because they charge higher to recoup all the discounts they have away.

    https://www.ionos.com/domains/1-dollar-domains

    *Ionos has a terrible user interface by the way.

    I used NameSilo for many years and was always really happy with them. Their interface looks quite dated but it offers a lot of batch updating tools and it "just works", which is awesome.

    However, I did transfer my eligible domains to Cloudflare for the cheaper price. I would still recommend NameSilo and would register any new domains there (until I can register them at Cloudflare).
