At the beginning of each year, I have a few domains that come up for renewal. And so a new year always starts off with a search for the best Godaddy coupon codes that can be used for renewals. While there are many coupons available for new domains and all their other services, like hosting and SSL certificates, they really don’t offer as many renewal codes, and certainly not many for a significant discount. So, my search is always challenging. The good news is that I have found a code that works for most domain extensions. I just used it on a .com and .net domain and received a very nice 40% off!
My total was over $25 for these two domains and applying this code, took 40% off the total to bring it to $17.34. The coupon actually brings down the price to $7.99 for each domain. Then they add the ICANN fee to each.
Here it is –
UPDATE FEBRUARY 2014 — The above code expired, so use this one – GDBXX1026
I tried it just today and it works for renewals.
Don’t forget that if you need to buy a new domain, they still have their 99 cent offer available. Just search for the phrase “domain names” in a search engine and an ad should come up that you can click to get that discount.
Lesson for today, never pay full price at Godaddy, always use a coupon code! Even better, choose another registrar, like Namecheap or Moniker. I have moved most of the my remaining domains to these registrars, as they are more reliable and I don’t like the way Godaddy does business, but I still renew a few at Godaddy. Hope this helps you save money in 2014!
