Cool This is probably important for all members of the forum

Thanks goes to Ccole for giving me the heads up on this one, seems that http://staples.register.com is selling domain names for $1!!! This offer ends within a day or two, so I strongly suggest you all check it out. Thanks also to this thread http://geekvillage.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/001594.html fo the original info.

Please note that according to their terms and conditions you are committing yourself to paying $35 for the second year and annually thereafter (unless of course you transfer the domain off their servers before then).

This doesn't negate the value of the $1 offer, but it helps to put it in perspective.

It's not really worth it since it's just for 1 Year and then you will be paying their normal fees as Edwin said, which is $35.00/year and that will cover up the $1.00 you paid. :-) Even if you move it to 000Domains or some other registrar after one year, you'll have to pay their normal fee which is $13.50. If Staples was offering this deal for upto 10 Years, that would be something. ;-)

Again, this offer is to benefit themseleves, not us. They will get you in the Game for cheap, but to play, the prices are very high. Hehe!

I noticed (from a banner ad on one of my own sites) that Networksolutions ran a similar campaign, where they let you register a domain name and use it for free for three months. If you decided to keep it after that, you had to pay $35 for the rest of the year.

I'm not sure if they still run that campaign though, since it's now (well, soon) less than 3 months left of the year.

Exactly where is the TOS? As far as I understand you can't lose much by registering many domains. If in a year the domains aren't profitable, you just don't renew it? Or am I way off here?

Clarification: If you register for one year for $1.00 and then a short time later you transfer it to 000domains.com your total cost for 2 years is 14.50 since 000domains.com uses the expire date of the transfered domain and then adds one year on top of that http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif The net net savings for you is about 12.00 (using 000domains.com for pricing) for 2 years of registration.

HTH

I need a wee bit more of clarification http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif
Forget about transfering it to another registrar for a moment. I've read through the TOS, and I can't find any statement saying that it's a 2 year commitment. The big question is, have I gone blind? http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

I've registered at least 40 by now.

The TOS doesn't mention a thing about a two year contract when I read it. It states you are not tied down by them, doesn't it?

I plan on transferring to NameBargain.com . It's a 5.99/year offer for a day or two, then 9.99/year after. They are by the reliable Register.com too. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I'm glad you all liked the tip :-)

Here's another one:

Don't use the domain manager located at staples.register.com - go directly to register.com and log in instead.

This will give you several more options, for example a free url forwarding account...
