GoDaddy’s Discount Domain Club: Is It Worth It?

If you own a lot of domain names, you know how expensive yearly renewal fees can be. And in an effort to save money, you have probably found yourself scouring the internet for promotion codes or even thought about getting rid of some of your unused names. But is there an easier way to save on domain names?

GoDaddy says yes, but we're not so sure.

GoDaddy's Discount Domain Club Promises Lowest Prices

At an annual membership price of $89.99, GoDaddy's Discount Domain Club enables members to take advantage of year-round discounts on domain names and the "lowest prices in the industry".1

To compare the Discount Domain Club pricing to regular GoDaddy domain pricing, we've created the table below which lists the current annual pricing for some of the most common types of domain names.2

As you can see, GoDaddy's Discount Domain Club does offer some savings, especially on renewals.3 However, given the $89.99 cost of the membership, it is not likely that you will be able to get significant savings. First, to offset the cost of the Discount Domain Club membership, GoDaddy's sales team suggests that you register or renew about 100 domains during the course of your membership. However, if you plan to register or renew 100 domain names, bulk domain registrations and bulk domain renewals can offer the same — or close to the same — level pricing as the discount domain club. Additionally, added savings can also be had by registering domains for periods greater than 1 year.

There is also another big way to save: GoDaddy Promotion Codes.

GoDaddy Sales & Promotion Codes Will Save You MORE!

As any GoDaddy customer knows, GoDaddy is always having a sale and regularly sends out promotion codes. These regular promotions can save you as much as 35% or more on domain names, matching and even exceeding the savings that one can get from being a member of the Discount Domain Club. So if you are hoping to save on domain names, you can probably get the greatest savings by looking out for top GoDaddy sales and then registering or renewing as many domain names as possible.4

  1. Members of this club also receive other benefits such as reduced pricing for GoDaddy's Domain Buy Service, free CashParking® Premium, and free Membership in GoDaddy Auctions®. []
  2. GoDaddy's domain name pricing changes regularly, so for the latest pricing tables, visit GoDaddy.com. []
  3. When renewing domain names for periods greater than one year, you can see even greater savings, further shrinking the potential savings from a GoDaddy Discount Domain Club membership. []
  4. If you don't receive these domain names in your inbox, you can also search the internet for websites which list current GoDaddy promotions. []
