Buying or Renewing .COM Domains? This post shows how to save $59.37 by purchasing 2 .COM domain names for 2 years with domain privacy services. This is a price comparison between 2 different domain registrars – my current domain registrar and my previous domain registrar.
I am a fully paid up member of Domain Cost Club. This allows me to buy or renew my domains at special member prices which provides me with good savings.
Savings made by me on March 19, 2016
Earlier today I renewed 2 of my .COM domains for 2 years and opted for domain name privacy.
These are third parties so offerings and prices may change over time. These prices also do not include any applicable taxes and the like which may also need to be paid.
|Description||Domain Cost Club Member Prices on March 19, 2016||My Previous Domain Registrar Prices on March 19, 2016|
|2 years domain registration for the first .COM domain name||$15.70||$33.98|
|2 years ICANN fee for the first .COM domain name||$0.36||$0.36|
|2 years domain name privacy for the first .COM domain name||$0.00||$19.98|
|2 years domain registration for the second .COM domain name||$15.70||$33.98|
|2 years ICANN fee for the second .COM domain name||$0.36||$0.36|
|2 years domain name privacy for the second .COM domain name||$0.00||$19.98|
|Paypal processing fee 5%||$1.61||$5.44|
My previous domain registrar price was $16.99 per .COM domain name per year and $9.99 per year per domain name for domain name privacy on March 19, 2016. I am not sure if they absorb the Paypal processing fee or the ICANN fee.
Pretty Good Saving
As I am already a fully paid up member of Domain Cost Club, I saved $80.35 on my purchase today. I paid only $33.73 verses the $114.08 price, saving $80.35 in the process. I paid less than 30% of what I would have had to pay if I was not a member of Domain Cost Club.
For people who are not currently Domain Cost Club members they would need to add the cost of membership. The Lite Membership type allows members to buy up to 5 domains using Domain Cost Club’s At-Cost pricing model and costs $9.99 per year.
|2 years Lite Domain Cost Club membership $9.99 per year * 2 (for 2 years)||$19.98|
|Paypal processing fee 5% of $19.98||$1.00|
|The Domain Cost Club membership cost (see table above) of two .COM domain names with domain privacy services for two years||$33.73|
|The Domain Cost Club Lite membership cost plus the associated Paypal processing fee plus the Domain Cost Club member’s cost (see above) of two .COM domain names with domain privacy services, all for two years||$54.71|
Paying $54.71 verses the $114.08 price, saving $59.37 in the process.
And paying less than 48% of what it would cost if you purchased these services from my previous domain registrar.
