No, I am not talking about a treat.

Porkbun is a domain registrar with attractive pricing (check out .com / .net, for example) with even further bulk discount available. Their pricing is even better than Enom/netearthone deposit-based reseller pricing.

https://porkbun.com/products/details

They seem to have just over 50 likes on their Facebook page, which tells me they might be a young company, but they don't come across amateurish.

Thoughts? Comments?

When you have 100+ of them, it starts to make a difference.

That's the thing with Porkbun, it isn't the very first time I noticed them and while they are a small team, the company is pretty transparent in who runs it. These aren't newbies to the business.

Still an interesting option, just because it isn't a reseller product and no large deposits are necessary to gain better renewal rates.

I might transfer a couple of names to them to start and see how it goes. If I do, I'll definitely share the experience.

Porkbun is owned by Top Level Design registry, so they've been around a fair while. From what I know, Top Level Design / PorkBun own the TLD's of .ink, .wiki, and .design, as such they are the registry for those TLD's.
Anyway, they are ICANN accredited.

The owner says:
Quote:
Our pricing model is really simple, we just put a $1 mark up on non-premium domains (after CC and ICANN fees).
They don't have enough TLD's that I use to move to them. Their pricing is great, though.

Considering Namecheap still resells through eNom, PorkBun probably won't run away anytime soon.

Sure, they just give first year discount , renew by same price like other providers

I see that the price is not good comparing to Namecheap or Namesilo , especially for TLDs.

What do you mean specifically by a TLD? That's exactly where Porkbun's pricing is so much better than Namecheap.

I went ahead and registered a few domains with them (all .com). They take additional $0.30 off each consecutive domain when you are buying together. So:

domain1.com $8.84
domain2.com $8.54
domain3.com $8.54
domain4.com $8.54

Pretty refreshing. I'll be slowly transfering more names to them as they come to renewal.

I haven't used them and as you say, they do seem pretty young / new so I'd personally be hesitant. I see you've registered the names though so be sure to let us know how things go .

NameSilo is also a great alternative for cheap domains. They're more well known and used by many. At the 100+ names you have, you'd be getting them for $8.79 -- Sure a few cents more on the rates you're getting but the reassurance from being a larger company may balance that out.
