They're scamsters you've just done your money.

I have purchased sevearl domains from them. Never had any issues.

luckily, I didnt buy a bunch of crap, just the small stuff

I thought they had decent service...they just try to push a lot of extra things on you is all. They would sell your own penis to you if they could.

My order was well taken care of with a follow up phone call to make sure everything was going well.

I like that as a customer.

I have had no Issues with them and plan to renew my hosting with them next month

I register all my domains there, currently I only have 4. I know people that use their web hosting services and you certainly can't beat the price for the features. From what I hear the only down side to their hosting solutions is the maximum speed, but if it's a small company with low traffic that should be a non-issue.

I've had nothing but great luck with that company.

I have over 15 domains registered with GoDaddy, and plan on using them as my exclusive domain host for years to come unless they change things drastically.

Great company!

register it at godaddy,
host them at icdsoft.com
I can get you a year with domain name, with lots better hosting for $30

If you go to one of the webhosting rating places, icdsoft is always one of the top 5, thats how I found them.

I have 90 domains

I use them for webhosting. Never had any problems. Customer service is chat based which there's usually always someone around. Plans start as low as $1/month. That's what I use on one of my domains.

Really convenient.

Several domain names and hosting, no complaints here.

I register all my domains through godaddy.com and love having all my domains at one accessible acct.

I host my stuff at dreamhost.com which has been phenomenal so far.

This has been posted, but not the right way. I asked op to edit but didn't happen. This is the correct way to get the free domain name from godaddy.com Do everything here and you will get your domain the next day!

You don't have to make a purchase, just add the coupon to your cart and check out. They will send you an email confirming your order. The next day godaddy will send you a promotional code good for one year of free hosting. I did this yesterday and got the promo code this morning. Registered my domain with no problems and is up and running right now!

Click the link below for the coupon.


You can also get free ad-supported hosting from godaddy.com with the registration of a new domain name. 5GB diskspace and 250GB bandwidth. This is a great deal, get it fast before buy.com figures out what is going on.

EDIT: This deal now seems to be dead. Too many people got in on the deal and buy.com figured out what is going on. I think having thousands of orders with just a coupon would ring my bell too... You are welcome to still try it, but I think they have caught on. Good job to everyone that got in on this deal.

EDIT: Still paying $0.79 for a domian isn't that bad either!

EDIT: Here is the email I recieved this morning. Idk if you guys can use the code I got but it's worth a try:
