GoDaddy is Giving Away Free Money to its Customers!

I received an email from GoDaddy that says I will be getting a refund of .03 for each domain I registered with them from July of 2006 to present. Its not a ton of cash (only about $12) but how often does GoDaddy pay you for registering domains?

Could this be considered making money online? LOL

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN®) recently agreed to reduce their Registrar Transaction Fee from $.25 to $.22. What does this mean for you?

Good news. You have been credited $.03/yr for each domain name you registered or renewed dating back to July 1, 2006* — $11.34 has been placed into your Go Daddy® account with this customer number: XXXXXXX.

Your in-store credit will be applied to your purchases at GoDaddy.com® until it’s gone or for up to 12 months, whichever comes sooner. If you have any questions, please contact a customer service representative at 480-505-8877.

As always, thank you for being a Go Daddy customer.

Sincerely,

Bob Parsons
CEO and Founder
GoDaddy.com

    I think you have a just a little more domains than I do… I think I got around the area of about $4.00 back… If I did my math right, I believe you have 400 domain names. What do you do with these names? Do you list them in the aftermarket or just stock them for a rainy day… If your reasons are like mine, I look at it as an investment. Eventually my inventory of names will be used or sold in some form or fashion.

    I use them all. I have never had any luck with the domain aftermarket, so I don’t buy them to speculate on their sale.

    I own about 12 blogs, a few directories, a joke website, four company websites and about 30-40 websites for entrepreneurial ventures that may or may not pan out.

    The main reason my numbers are so inflated is that I learned five years ago that if you do not reserve variations of your domain name, you will have to sue to get them back from squatters who seek to capitalize on your hard work and success.

    So for every domain I am serious about, I own the .com, .net, .org, .name, .ws, .tv., and any other variation I can buy. That tends to pump the numbers a bit.

    I wrote a post about how GoDaddy.com is a “cool” website host. How good is there support? Not sure, never used them.

    I got like fifty cents and laughed my head off! I guess some people got more money than that, but I thought it was almost ridiculous to refund fifty cents. Oh well, it’s money!
