How to find a cheap domain name


In order to find and register a domain name, you would usually go through so called domain name registrars. The various companies that host these services usually charge relatively high fees for a single domain name. Although this might seem like a one way street, there are services that provide cheaper ones. Some of these require you to register for their services, which in turn allow you to buy cheaper domain names from other members.

Another method of attaining a cheaper domain name is by signing up for a hosting service or a website builder package like 1&1 MyWebsite. These other types of services provide you with much cheaper domain names because they charge for their hosting for website building features. As a result, you don't have to pay for your domain, or if you do it will not be nearly as expensive as just registering a domain name by itself.
FAQ - Frequently asked questions about the topic:

Cheap Domain Names

  • Why are some domains cheaper than others?

    When you look at our domain price list, you will see that some domains are cheaper than others. But why is a .com domain name cheaper than a .online domain? The answer is simple: there are different factors that determine the final retail price of a domain. One important factor is the registry price. 1&1 and the other domain hosting companies have to pay a fee per domain to registrars like VeriSign (.com/.net) or Nominet (.uk). These fees differ from registrar to registrar. That is one reason, why the old top level domain .com is cheaper than the new top level domain .online. Another reason is the demand of a domain extension, which can influence the price.
  • Which cheap domains can I register at 1&1?

    1&1 offers you a wide range of different domains. The most common domains are available at cheap prices. You will find generic top level domains (e.g. .com, .co.uk, .org...) and a lot of new top level domains as .london, .scot or .football.
  • If I have a great name in mind, how can I find out, if it is still available?

  • How to get premium domain names cheap?

    The term premium domain refers to all domains which are already registered by another person or company who might currently not be interested in selling it. These domain names are usuallyshort, generic and thus easy to remember. Because of these characteristics, owners of such a premium domain can sometimes expect to make a lot of money when reselling them. Usually, premium domains are auctioned through marketplaces, like sedo.com and not very cheap to get your hands on.
  • Is 1&1 the cheapest domain name registrar in general?

    At 1&1, we strive to always have competitive price levels for our products - for every customer. However, due to the sheer size of our portfolio, we cannot guarantee to have the best price available for all products, all the time. Instead, we focus on a selected range of domain extensions which are very frequently sought after by our customers, such as .com, and provide those domain names to you at a very cheap rate.

    Many competitors have aggressive offers in their portfolio, too. For example: when a launch of a new domain extension is shortly to come, it is an industry standard to promote bundles of domains at a discounted rate. Thus, there are always many cheap domain names for sale in the marketplace. It is up to you to find the right registrar with the best offer for your need.
  • What is there to know about the renewal rates, if I want to purchase a cheap new domain?

    In case you are looking for a cheap domain name purchase, there are a couple of things you should keep in mind. The offers that are available to you will likely be different in a number of dimensions such as: 1st year price, setup fees, multiyear-registration options and discounts, opportunities for bundles, the level of support, additional services available to you, and eventually: the renewal rate.

    Usually, a cheap domain name renewal price for the 2nd year is higher than the welcome offers you can get for the initial registration of a domain in the first year. Most domain deals also suggest that you will get an additional discount, the longer you commit yourself to the domain provider.
