    New Registrar - Name Silo

    I found a new registrar and I just tested their services. They are located in Phoenix, Arizona.

    Domain Name Pricing-Domain Registration Prices-Cheap & Easy: NameSilo

    The tout themselves as the Cheapest Everyday Prices on the Web. Their regular pricing competes well with most GoDaddy coupon prices. A big plus is that their registrations include free privacy.

    I was impressed with their system. It is pretty well thought-out.

    For my test, I registered a domain and set up custom nameservers. The registration propagated quickly and the new site was ready to set up in about 15 minutes.

    You can pay for registrations using a credit card, PayPal or an amount accumulated in your account. They have an affiliate program that deposits affiliate commissions in your account so that you can use them for purchasing registrations.

    It looks like these guys are worth checking out.


    I sent a message to Name Silo and requested coupon codes for Net Builders. Here is what was in the reply.

    We are currently offering the following coupon codes:

    • 5DOLLARCOM
      • Allows 1 .com registration for $5
      • Can only be used once per user

    • 10COUP
      • 10% off any registration or transfer order over $20
      • Can be used 4 times per user

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    I'll probably start using them.
    They are cheaper than Godaddy right now and they don't bombard you with other offers that you don't need.

    Also thanks for the coupons.

    I read most of the site and did most of the checks where people could get screwed, but yep, this registrar looks really promising! They aren't offering hosting neither so they won't spam with offers for that neither all the time, awesome!

    Yeah, I think these guys could be real contenders--if they don't start blasting people with cheesy offers, like one registrar that we all know.

    I used PayPal for payment and I didn't have to play the game of moving funds into a NameCheap account or setting up a permanent PayPal account link as with GoDaddy.

    I just registered a few more dot coms with these guys. The regular price was $6.99 including privacy registration. I then got 10% off of this using 10COUP. 5DOLLARCOM has expired.

    Glad you informed us about this new registrar. One a side note: Namecheap now allows direct Paypal payments without moving funds first.

    I don't know. I'm just a customer. Try it and see if it works, and then let us know.

    It looks like 10COUP is an ongoing promo, but you can only use it 4 times per year according to what they sent to me.

    The $6.99 price with privacy registration is the part that I like. The privacy registration alone costs more than that with GoDaddy.
