Yahoo Extends $4.98 Domain Offer, Go Daddy Cuts Price
24th January, 2005
Yahoo has extended its $4.98 a year domain name promotion through at least Feb. 8, the third such extension since it introduced the offer on Dec. 10. The promotion was intially scheduled to end Dec. 31, but the extension suggests the offer is generating business for Yahoo, which is seeking to attract small business customers.
In other domain pricing movements, Go Daddy has lowered its one-year .com price from $8.95 to $7.95, having shfted back and forth between the two prices periodically over the last year. The registrar recently expanded its hosting offerings, will be an advertiser in the Super Bowl on Feb. 6, but has not indicated whether it will support its $2.4 million commercial with any special pricing offers.
