Cheap Domain Names Warning
Beware of cheap domain deals. Many companies selling cheap
domain names also use search engine unfriendly techniques
like redirecting, masking and branded hosting.
Many cheap domain name deals contain expensive hidden
fees which can increase the price substantially.
Cheap domain registration contracts often have hidden costs.
Don't get stung by hidden charges when you actually need to
use or move a domain name. Many companies offering cheap names
charge for registration, then domain name pointing, release
fees and still run adverts on your site.
Many companies are claiming that they can register domain
names for less than $1.00 ( mostly UK companies ). In reality
the price is much higher than this. As well as the registration
fee , they then charge often substantial amounts for domain
parking, domain pointing, e-mail forwarding / url forwarding
and other services. In some case this can bring the price
to over $60 and up.
Other misleading advertisements claim to provide "free
transfer of your domain name" . Many companies use
this to describe domain pointing. So in other words
they are telling you its ok to manage your domain and point
it towards your web host. But you may find they if you need
to transfer your domain name to another company, there is
in fact a charge.
Do not be fooled into their misleading advertising scams.
Advertising scams like this are designed to hook you in.
