I just want to give a huge shout out to Internet.bs who's helped me move the last of my gtld names away from the evil daddy.

Name.com better step up with their new "investor" pricing (http://blog.name.com/2010/06/name-co...estor-pricing/) or else I'm-a-moving to the Bahamas.

Still great prices even after 7-1 and a simple functional panel to boot.. https://internetbs.net/ is quickly becoming my fav (Sorry Name.com)

It looks like a great deal offered by Internet BS. They sell .com TLD for $7.15 which is the cheapest price of the most popular TLD today (I wonder if Go Daddy still sells it for $6.99).

I am extremely interested in seeing what Name.com investor pricing will be.

Also very impressed with Internet BS pricing. How can they offer prices for domain registrations lower than its main rivals? How are they making their money?

I think being located in the Bahamas has something to do with it.

They also offer other services like SSL certs >> http://www.greensslcertificates.com/

But however it is, I'm not complaining/questioning

That is some amazing pricing.

What is the lowest average price that GoDaddy/NameCheap has, considering a coupon is used? I remember I was getting domains at around $7.50 also. What would it be today?

Actually, just made some searching. Relatively the same price with GoDaddy:

cjc689FAT $6.89 .coms (exp 6/30/10) (registration)
OYH10 - $2.50 off / $7.49 any .COM (renewals too)

That's better than Internet BS's .COM renewal at $8.35.

Add whois privacy for $8.99/yr with Godaddy though, whereas Internet.bs whois privacy is free.

That's a good point, Plexi, but for many the value of private whois is less than actual cost of domain fees.

Having said that, I don't quite understand why private whois should be a paid option at all! Doesn't seem to represent a cost to domain registrars, does it?

Well, it's at least a custom system that forwards emails etc. Also, some registrars charge you if they receive snail mail (like serving of legal documents).
