The right domain at the right price.
GoDaddy has been selling cheap domain names ever since 2000 when we registered our very first .com for 70% below the going rate at the time. And although our popularity has grown since then, you can still get a great name for as little as R16,62 for the first year.
I'm The Attract Money Guru!
I didn't know what .guru was really all about, so I called GoDaddy and the rep I spoke with was very helpful in getting me up to speed on it. By the end of the call attractmoney.guru was mine, and I could not have been happier. Thanks GoDaddy!

Amazingly Easy to Use
One stop shopping for getting a website up and running - get the name, register it, build the site and they host it, all in one spot. The builder tool is amazingly easy to use - so much easier than any of the others I have used! You get to do all the fun parts, and they take care of all the drudgery in the background. Great help videos and articles, and their phone customer support is just amazing - really nice peeps who know what they are doing, and take the time to make sure your tangles are straightened. Brilliant all the way around.

She wouldn’t quit . . . #neversaynever
Erica Felger wouldn’t give up and not only solved my issue but also captured additional services that I needed. She is an example of sincerity in this world of complacency. Her desire to solve my issue was uncompromising and I now see a value in GoDaddy that I had never seen before! Thank you Erica!

Tommie sings Journey and makes me feel smarter
I didn't think I'd be able to do all of this web site stuff myself, but I wanted to try to save our small business some money. Tommie walked me through the process, educating us on the right products for our business and putting up with my endless questions. He made me feel like he cared about our business and seemed excited about bringing us into the 21st century. :-) He also has quite the singing voice. I now have his version of Adele's "Hello" and Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" in my head. While I'm not overly grateful for those memories, I am grateful for his patience and expertise. Thanks, Tommie!

Very clear, simple and effective
I had been looking for a good website builder at an affordable price, with quality relative to price being the main factor for me. The GoDaddy Website Builder was the perfect tool for what I wanted to do, and I was very pleased indeed with the experience. I didn't encounter any problems or areas I felt could be improved upon, even being a novice - completely new to website building with no experience at all prior to doing it. It was the look of my website which, combined with the ease to set up, made my particularly happy - with the professional presentation absolutely unbeatable compared to other sites I had looked into. I would certainly recommend GoDaddy Website Builder to anyone wishing to set up a high-quality website at a very affordable price.

Why choose GoDaddy?
If I purchase a domain for a low price, will the renewal rate be the same?
Probably not. Many cheap domains are available at a great price due to a sale or special offer on first-year registration. Our R16,62 domain name offers are often limited to one year, with successive years billed at the regular rate. That said, there are other great ways to buy cheap domain names from GoDaddy while keeping the price low (and affordable!) in the future.
Here are some options to consider at renewal time:
Does GoDaddy always have the cheapest domain price?You can always count on GoDaddy to offer competitive pricing on domain names and all of our other services. We set the standard when it came to establishing rock-bottom prices for domain names and making it affordable for more people to get online. We STILL lead the industry when it comes to helping people build an online presence, and we will always strive to provide our customers with the best possible prices.
You'll find that many other domain name registrars also offer competitive prices. When choosing the right registrar for your needs, you might also want to consider what other website services you might need, the company’s reputation, and the quality of their customer service.
Why are some domains cheap but others cost more?
There are two main factors that determine the cost of a new domain name: 1) the registry fee and 2) demand.
- Registry Fee
GoDaddy and other domain registrars pay a fee to the registry that actually owns the domain extensions they sell. This fee is non-negotiable, and it influences the final retail cost of a domain. The registry fee is part of the reason that a .luxury domain name costs so much more than a new .com domain.
Demand for specific domain extensions can also lead to a rise in prices. You can expect that highly-popular gTLDs (such as .vip and .win) will cost more than new domain extensions that are not experiencing high demand.
Even if the domain you want cost more than some of the cheaper domain names, you can still count on GoDaddy to offer you competitive pricing. Our customer service team members can even help you come up with alternatives to an expensive or unavailable domain name, so you can end up with a domain you are pleased with at a price that is reasonable.
- Registry Fee
Do I get a better price if I buy domains in bulk?Yes. Our bulk domain registration helps you buy cheap domain names at an even lower price. Keep in mind that your available discounts when purchasing multiple domains will vary depending on the domains and extensions you are trying to purchase.
If you buy multiple domain names on a regular basis, then we also encourage you to check out our Discount Domain Club. DDC gives you some of the lowest domain prices available – without waiting for a sale or offer to be sent your way. Club members can save up to 60% everyday on domain registration prices, free membership to GoDaddy Auctions, and reduced pricing on our Domain Broker Service. The benefits add up quickly and make our already cheap domains even more economical.
Are there any hidden fees I need to worry about?No. At GoDaddy, we are upfront about pricing. If we advertise cheap domain registration for R16,62 or R167,62 for the first year, then that’s the price you can expect to pay. While many customers choose to purchase additional products to grow their online presence, you are not required to buy other products to complete registration for a cheap domain name. If you are taking advantage of a special domain offer or first-year registration pricing, you will be notified about the limitations of the offer and future pricing changes at the time of purchase.
