Is godaddy the cheapest on info domain registration?
I have some friends interested in gettting some info domains, but they can only pay with paypal. Since godaddy does not take paypal, any other options here?

godaddy takes paypal successfully

name.com is cheaper and they accept paypal. I think namecheap.com is a tad cheaper than godaddy and accept paypal also. Both sites are much easier to navigate than godaddy also

Edit: Oh I see you want it for .info only. I am not sure if they are cheaper for .info, but overall they are.

I don't know if GoDaddy are the cheapest on info domain, but I know they have these discounts on coupons that are surely helpful:
CRAZY3 - .COM for $7.45 - Save $2 --- shouldn't really help you right now, as you look for .info domains, but could be helpful in the future. Anyhow, if your friends try to register some more domains, these should get useful:
CRAZY1 - 10% off any order
CRAZY2 - $5 off any order $30 or more
They are non-expiring, and work with renewals also. Simply enter them at checkout.

Oh, glad you found your way back to Daddy. Hard to navigate or not, they are pretty much the best in hosting, as far as I know. I guess that is a later edit...

$2.98 and they do accept paypal.

I have been using Namecheap.com for 3 years. It is a great registrar. Their pricing is affordable and using a coupon even helps you save more. It makes it easy for you to transfer domain names to and from them.

Dream Host's web hosting service is excellent. Downtime and download speeds are good. Also they have good customer service. They add new features every month and the amount of bandwidth and disk space you are allocated grows every week.

I myself use hostmonster. Though it's a tad pricey, all domain extensions cost the same. It also has great MySQL and PHP handling built in, not to mention *almost* infinite space. I'm using a half-gig and the status bar is still empty.

Plus, you see a lot of phishing using GoDaddy's service. It's a bad crowd.
