How To Get Domains From GoDaddy Using Honey

No, not actual honey, although that would be awesome if you could. I’m actually talking about the Honey plugin, which works for (at least) the Chrome browser, which is also what I mainly use. It also works for Firefox as well, if that’s what you prefer to use. Using this plugin, in conjunction with getting a domain with GoDaddy, could save you a lot of money.

I had originally wrote this “How-To” in Warrior Forum, in which I’m an active member (you can find me there under the screen name “koreancowboy“). It’s something that I had found out inadvertently, but needless to say…I’ve saved quite a bit of money using this.

Currently, I have about 17 domains, and almost all of them were purchased by using this method (only TDWU and Wrestling in Jello were not, but I’ve had those domains for years now).

Anyways, here’s my how to get domains from GoDaddy, using the Honey plugin for Chrome (or Firefox):

1) Install Honey.

2) Go to GoDaddy and grab your domain name.

Enter your desired domain name here.

3) Follow the prompts.

If your desired domain name is available, click on "Add" to add it to your cart.

Once added, click on the "Continue Checkout" button to proceed to the Checkout area.

Skip past the add ons if you don't want them.

4) In the checkout page, select “one year”…GoDaddy defaults to five years of registration.

GoDaddy defaults to five years of registration. Change this to one year, unless you really want to keep this for five years...

This is what it will look like once you've selected "One Year".

5) Right before you checkout, scroll to the bottom and click on the Honey CTA button (it’ll be in the promo code section)…it’s called “Find Savings”. It’ll take a few minutes for Honey to run through all of the available promo codes.

Now, if I don’t get an .99 promo code (or whatever is the lowest offer right now) the first time, I’ll keep clicking on it until one pops up. It usually only takes a few times to do so.

Most of the time, you will get the best deal using the Honey plugin.

6) Checkout as usual.

Finish checking out and secure your domain name.

I’m not sure if it works on the other places like 1&1 and Namecheap (I have domains on both, but I don’t like navigating through their sites, so yeah). Give it a whirl, and let me know what you think.

Oh, and by the way, I would also highly recommend setting up your own hosting company, in order to host the domains (and eventual websites) separate from your domains reside. Personally, I always recommend using Media Temple. I’ve been with them going on eight years now (since I started in Internet Marketing back in 2006), and I’ve never had an issue…not even had a site go down. Pretty impressive.

 

(Edit: I just figured out that this works with domain renewals as well, just select the domains to renew, number of years that you would like to renew, and then press the Honey CTA button for some additional savings)
