We renewed our domain name today, HTML fixit dot com’s second anniversary (brief pause for a song and cake). We look forward to another year providing web site designers; html, perl, php and other language coders; and others with help in their work on the web. All for just your thanks and a voluntary donation if you choose to make one. We also offer live chat help, free scripts and inexpensive scripts, including our very popular counter the tracks all sorts of things like visitor screen resolutions, sites referring to your site, etc.
Because it was time to renew, we looked around at some domain name registration sites. Many are currently offering renewal prices below $5.00. The conclusion is that Godaddy is still the best place for a regular priced renewal (non-transfer) as all other places have catches or inefficiencies. Examples would be one renewal at the lesser price, or the hosting must be with the registrar, or the transfer must be confirmed via facsimile to some far away place. One registrar even places advertisements on your site. Do not be fooled.
Godaddy has it’s own flaw: you have to go through pages and pages of offers clicking “no thanks” just to buy your name. If I wanted those things I would have looked for them. It is offensive.
Enjoy our next year, we hope to enjoy it with you.
