    Can't purchase a $4.99 domain?

    So I see there is a special for domains at $4.99. I entered the name I want, it says it's available for the $4.99/year ($0.42/mo) special, I add it to my cart, but when I go to check out, the price changes from $4.99 to $11.99. And I check the drop-down box for registration length, and I have 1 year chosen.

    Any idea why this is?

    Hi @spyce. Thanks for posting. Most commonly, I've seen this happen due to restrictions on the promotional price. For example, sometimes the offer is only valid when using certain payment methods. This is usually stated in the offer details somewhere. If you'd like to provide the URL of a page where you see the offer, I'd be happy to take a look. (URL's will usually have an offer code in them, so please make sure to copy the whole URL.)
