    Does anyone have any working GoDaddy codes for .com renewals?

    Used to always be easy to find ones to get renewals for £5.50-£6.00 ish, cant find any now....seems like they've knocked them on the head.

    I went via quidco yesterday and got 10% cashback, couldn't find any suitable codes though, they sometimes list codes on the click though page

    Tried every code on the list - none worked.

    Getting fed up subsidising Go Daddy's new customers by ever-inflated renewal prices.

    Anyone use Namecheap or have any other recommendations for .com registrations / renewals?

    Found a namecheap.com transfr code - SWITCH2NC

    Still not 100% on pricing though for Namecheap - website seems vague with plenty of "from" prices like "Transfer your domain as low as £5.87/year", but can't see price list.

    Just started the process of moving names from Go Daddy to Namecheap.

    GoDaddy wanted £113.43 to renew 13 names.

    Transfer to Namecheap with renewal for those 13 names was £66.97 with the code mentioned above, saving me £46.46.

    I have been with GoDaddy for years and have contemplated moving several times, but never did. Now I've started, I'll be moving all of my names over time. You just need to get started.

    Just transferred another 19 names from GoDaddy to Namecheap - saved me £98.35 in renewals plus free whois privacy on all domains with Namecheap.

    Transfer code still works to get 5% off - SWITCH2NC

    No brainer.

    That's a lot cheaper than the two year option quoted above!

    Name.com are doing transfers for $8.25, and new regs at $7.99 (code GOWILD).

    I just moved some of mine over, I like name.com :)

    Thanks for the tip-off.

    Funnily enough I got an email from GoDaddy today offering me 35% off renewals - obviously noticed I'm moving out and not renewing with them!

    Depending how many domains you have at Godaddy it might be worth purchasing 'Domain Discount Club' .coms are £4.96 each. The downside is it costs around £60 per year to get the discounts.
