There is no doubt that Godaddy releases the cheapest deals for domain names and hosting when their specials are on.It can get as low as $.099 cents for a domain name and $1 for a hosting plan- Often with a free domain name.
Your would wonder how they make the money?
Most people who buy hosting or domain name stay with their provider for a couple of years if not forever. Most special offers are special only as an introductory offer and renew at normal rates after that. so the company makes back its money over the longer term.
