Slickdeals.net tells us that today between 5pm and 6pm EST or until all coupons are gone (think within 3 minutes) that Dotster will be issuing a 50 cent coupon for a new domain name registration if purchased today or tomorrow.
One coupon per order, per account and/or per IP address. There will be a total of 1000 coupon codes. The promotion will last for 1 hour or until the 1000 coupon codes are gone. The coupon will be valid on March 9 & March 10, so the Happy Hour will ONLY be to GET their individual, unique coupon code, they canâ€™t actually purchase their domain until the next day.
Some of the post comments are negative on Dotster but I personally have used Dotster forever and trust them far more than GoDaddy and other registrars. This one unconfirmed bit of information was interesting:
Their normal prices are $14.95 unless you initiate a transfer to godaddy.com then they will send you an email telling you how they will lower the charge to $8.95.
Dear Dotster customer,
Our records indicate you are transferring your domain(s) from Dotster to Go Daddy Software, Inc.. If you are transferring due to your current account pricing, I would like to take this opportunity to offer you a permanent price reduction on your Dotster account.
If you decide to take advantage of this offer, your new, permanent Dotster account pricing will include the following â€“
* $8.95 Registrations and Renewals for .com, .net, .org, .info, .us, and .biz domains.
* $7.75 Transfer pricing for the same TLDâ€™s listed above.
* FREE URL Forwarding
* FREE Email Forwarding
* FREE DNS Management
* FREE Whois Privacy
* No ICANN Fees
If the registrar you are transferring to has a more competitive offer please let me know and Iâ€™ll do my best to match or beat their offer.
To take advantage of this new account pricing, simply reply to this e-mail and let me know youâ€™re interested, and indicate whether youâ€™d like your transfer cancelled or not. Iâ€™ll send you a confirmation once Iâ€™ve updated your account with the new pricing. If you are not interested in taking advantage of this offer, you do not need to reply to this e-mail. Youâ€™re transfer is only cancelled if you specify that you want it to be cancelled.
