This is crazy: .99 domains!

Last Update: April 04, 2014

What's up everyone, Buck Taylor here with some great info for you.

I wanted to share with all of you a great deal that you all can benefit from. 1and1 is a domain and hosting service provider and they currently have domains available for .99 cents a year!

Yes I did just say that, .99 Cents for a whole year!

But that's not all; they are also including their basic hosting package for no additional cost. That's a hosting plan with domain name for just .99 cents a year.

OK, enough with my sales pitch... I'm practicing for the big show.

Serious though, I've been using 1and1 for the past 7 years and they really are a good hosting company. I've used them for every one of my personal sites as well as my client’s sites and I've never had a problem with them. So if you need to get a few domains for your sites you should check them out.

Hosting your sites here on WA is a great option but I still suggest including the hosting package just in case you need it. It won’t cost you anymore and you can still point your domain to the server here if you choose.

So anyway, hope that helps you save a little money. I know domains generally don’t cost a lot anyway but every dollar saved helps!

I know right... but all companies no matter how good they are will have unhappy customers. I know that one first hand.

I really dislike 1&1, I will not buy another domain from them ever again.

Let's just say that if you buy a domain and at some point want to cancel it, don't assume that by not paying the registration fees it will automatically cancel it.

Nope, they'll automatically "renew" it for you and send you all kind of nasty emails telling you that you need to pay the registration fees otherwise they'll report it to the credit bureaus.

Most other registrars will just let it expire.

Another thing I didn't like about 1&1 is how long it took the domain servers to resolve. I didn't like waiting around for hours waiting to access my website just because I changed the name server.

Wow... so sorry you had this experience with them. I've never had a problem canceling a domain or anything with them.

I don't represent 1and1, I'm not even an affiliate of theirs, and I certainly can't guarantee that everyone will be happy with their service; so I'm wont try and convince anyone to try them.

However, I'm a satisfied customer of 7 years and think the deal is a good one for those who need a few domains with hosting and don't have a lot of money to spend.

will the cost remain the same in a year? Or does it revert to a higher fee then.

I believe it goes to $5.99 a month after the first year.

That is awesome! Is hosting for a limited amount of domain names?

Yes and No...

You can only take advantage of the deal when you buy one at a time. So for example, in the last few days I've purchased 5 domains with hosting plans one at at time and got the deal on all of them.

I should also mention this if you decide to give them a try. You first choose your domain name and then after that step is when they offer the hosting at no cost.

They will offer you two plans, one is a "Site Builder Plan" and one is their "Basic Hosting Plan." Make sure to choose the Basic Plan.
