I recently wanted to try out the domain transfer, since some of my domains are going to be expiring soon-ish
.comdomain would go from $8.99 to $7.85, great!
.infowould go from $12.67 to $10.84, amazing!
.onlinewould go from $16.99 to $25.00, supe— wait, what?
I would’ve expected all the prices to go down, but that’s not really that big of an issue. Maybe my current registrar undersells their less popular domains, maybe they have some special deal, maybe they like me enough to lower the price – no idea.
The problem is, I’m currently in the market for a new domain, one I would like to transfer to CF as well. Haven’t quite decided on the tld yet, but I have a few ideas. Thing is, I cannot compare my registrar’s and Cloudflare prices before I buy the domain.
Say, I’m thinking of either
.ninja, and both are around $10 on my current registrar. I have no way of knowing what the price will be after transfer. If I get
.games will it be a good deal since the price on CF will be $9? Or will it be a bad deal, the price will jump to $14? If the latter, maybe taking
.ninja would be better?
I know that Cloudflare doesn’t offer registration per se, only transfer. Still, I believe it would benefit from a small lil’ form saying
See how much you can save when transfering!, where you input your current domains and can see what they’d cost on Cloudflare.
Just some food for thought
