As a leading provider of domain registration and hosting services, we have helped millions of people around the globe shop for and secure cheap domain names.
Most business owners think that buying an expensive domain name guarantees traffic and recognition of their site. However, it is easy to get a cheap domain name that is equally reliable: simply choose us as your registrar. Before registering your domain, choosing a desired name is the crucial first step. Once you have done so, you can use the search tools (like the domain check bar at the top of this page) to help you check whether your domain name is available or if it is already in use. If all your preferred names are already taken, you can choose a completely new one or try another domain extension. There are different ways in order to get a domain. You can register the domain name directly or you can select a web hosting plan.
With a cheap domain name, you get a good-quality address at a low price. Apart from having the option of registering cheap domains with no extra costs, you can also have multiple domains and manage them all from a single source — the IONOS control panel.
You can secure domain names with us at very affordable rates, usually starting at $1 for the first year or sometimes even less. Here is how domain prices come about in general.
When selecting your provider, do not only compare prices. You should also check what you actually receive for your hard-earned dollar. At IONOS, there are no ICANN fees, you get a free personal consultant, free domain privacy, free email and SSL included.
For a substantial number of domains, you may find that your desired name is already owned by someone else. If you have no other option but to buy that domain, e.g. because it is easy to remember, then you'll likely have to pay a lot more for it.
Some domains are cheaper than others. One important element of the retail price is at what price the individual registry — e.g. VeriSign for extensions like .com or .net — is willing to sell to us as a registrar.
When consumer demand for a domain is high and many hosting companies are willing to offer it as part of their portfolios, then that will drive retail prices down. Thus, making niche domains like .audio cost a lot more.
In the US, there is normally a battle for the cheapest .com domain prices. That is great for our customers. We strive to have very competitive offers for both, first-year and renewal prices.
