It no longer costs an arm and a leg to register a domain at Register.com. Just an arm.
Register.com has teased customers over the past month with emails saying that change was coming. Today, that change dropped.
On the front end, the biggest thing you’ll notice is an upgraded color scheme. But Register.com promises that its platform has been redone under the hood.
In an email to customers, Register.com also says that it has revised its prices on the most popular domains. Indeed, both Register.com and Web.com’s other major register, Network Solutions, appear to have dropped their prices on .com domains.
You can now register a .com domain for an industry-leading $25/year. By industry-leading, I mean the highest price possible.
It also appears that this price is promotional for one or two years. I don’t have any domains at Register.com to test, but at Network Solutions, it seems that .com domains renew for $37.99. (I should note that this price is higher than the site’s official price list.)
One under-the-hood experience that I doubt has changed is how the company issues authorization codes to transfer domains. It appears to take a few days still to get these codes.
