I've been a Dotster customer for a few years now, but the $8.95 domains at Go Daddy are just too much to resist. That's a 40% savings compared to Dotster. A 75% savings if you're still using Verisign. I've heard good things, so I'm trying a few domains that are up for renewal and we'll see how it goes.
I will keep using Dotster's Domain Discover service. Excellent tool for domain name brainstorming.
Interesting. Once I requested the transfer, Dotster offered to renew the domains for $7.99. I don't know if that's a standard thing or what, but if you're needing to renew and you don't really want to switch from Dotster, you could try it and see if they'll cut you a deal.
On a side note... remember Parsons Technology? Bob Parsons is the founder and president of Go Daddy. Not sure how he arrived at the domain name, but as long as the service is reliable and cheap, he can name it whatever he wants.
