Domain Private Registration Services And Domain Cost Club

Do you want to get domain privacy? Or do you want to buy domains and renewals at great prices? Or do you want to earn money? If you answered Yes to one or more of these questions, I have good news for you below.

Domain Private Registration Services and Domain Cost Club

Domain Private Registration Services and Domain Cost Club - Privacy

Domain private registration services are now available within Domain Cost Club.

Over the last few months I exchanged a number of emails with the support department at Domain Cost Club in connection with them offering Domain Private Registration Services.

The questions I asked initially are mentioned later on in this post along with the current answers as on July 14, 2015.

This is what this post covers:

Does Domain Cost Club Offer Domain Privacy As A Service, Like Other Domain Name Registrars?

question mark
Yes

If So, How Much Does It Cost?

With Domain Cost Club, this service is provided free of charge to Domain Cost Club Members whose membership of Domain Cost Club has not elapsed.

If Not, Is It A Service That Domain Cost Club Will Provide In The Near Future?

It is now available.

Some time back, I was pleased and thrilled to find out that it was something that they planned in putting in place and therefore it was only a manner of time before it would be in place.

I kept in touch with them on a decent periodic basis over the last few months as I know that this is something that could be important to you. Not every day or every week mind you, about once every 4 to 10 weeks.

Late last night or very early this morning, depending on your point of view, I learned that this new service is now available.

GoDaddy, a major player in the domain name business charges $9.99 per domain name per year for one of its domain privacy services offering. That will set you back $99.90 per year if you have 10 domain names registered with them that you need domain privacy services for.

HostGator, another major player in the domain name business charges $14.95 per domain name per year for one of its domain privacy services offering. That will set you back $149.50 per year if you have 10 domain names registered with them that you need domain privacy services for.

What Are Domain Private Registration Services

what

For those of you who don’t know what this is, every domain name has a number of important contact information available to the public. This information includes name, address, phone number and email address information. People that expose this information could get unwanted emails, phone calls and so forth.

Using a private registration service means that this service has their data there instead, so you do not get this unwanted emails, phone calls and so forth. This provides a level of privacy.

Having private registration services in place is a really good idea.

Anyway back to Domain Cost Club and private registration services.

Activate Private Registration Services

At this stage, I have now activated Private Registration Services for each of my domains that I have registered with Domain Cost Club. And it did not cost me any extra money as it is a free offering to all Domain Cost Club members whose paid membership has not elapsed.

maths

I have done some maths in my Domain Cost Club Review article. I even noticed that the cost of Lite membership in Domain Cost Club for one year is way less than the cost of Domain Privacy Services for one domain for one year with GoDaddy (Source).

I also checked the price of the Private registration service with the domain registrar I was previously with. The price there now is $7.95 per domain name per year. So I saved an amount of cash. Always good. πŸ™‚

With say 10 domain names, that would save me $79.50 per year if those 10 domain names need domain privacy services.

Activating Private Registration Services Within Domain Cost Club Member’s Area

step by step

These instructions were correct at the time of writing this. The internet is a fast moving world so by the time you read this, this may have changed. πŸ™‚

Below are instructions on how to activate Private Registration Services within the Domain Cost Club Member’s area:

  1. Login or Signup here
  2. Click your Account (Mine is “David’s Account) from the top navigation bar
  3. Click “Domain Contacts” from the left navigation bar
  4. Click “Setup Private Registration” in the “Actions” column of the “Contact List”
  5. Input security questions and answers and press “Submit”

Once activated, you can set Private Registration as default for future registrations by taking the following steps:

  1. Press the “Change Defaults” button
  2. Check the “Use Private Registration for All” box
  3. Press the “Save Changes” button

This won’t change your existing domains’ contacts. It will set future registrations to private.

You can set existing domains to private in bulk or individually. To set Private Registration in bulk, take the following steps:

  1. Click “My Domains” from the left navigation bar
  2. Select domains via check-box
  3. Select “Change Domain Contacts” in the “Bulk Actions…” drop-down and press “Submit”
  4. Check the “Use Privacy” box and press “Save Changes”

To change an individual domain to use privacy, click the Contacts icon while in the “My Domains” area. Select “Use Privacy” and save your changes.

Can I See The Domain Cost Club Private Registration Terms Of Service?

terms of service

Yes, of course.

Private registration services are provided to all Domain Cost Club Members free of charge.

To see the Domain Cost Club Private registration terms of service:

  1. Login or Signup here
  2. Click “Login or SignUp” from the top navigation bar
  3. Click “Terms of Service”
  4. Click “Private Registration Terms of Service”

When I looked at these earlier, they are brief and very much direct to the point unlike others I have seen. I like the brevity of this document.

No Additional Costs For Domain Cost Club Members For This Service

happy man

As I already mentioned above, other domain registrars’ charge additional monies for this service for each domain and for each year. I did a price comparison earlier today.

The domain registrar I was previously with provides domain private registration services for $7.95 per domain per year. With them, getting domain private registration services for 3 domains costs $23.85 per year, for 5 domains costs $39.75 per year and so on. With Domain Cost Club, this is free of charge to Domain Cost Club Members whose membership of Domain Cost Club has not elapsed.

Domain Private Registration Services And Domain Cost Club Conclusion

conclusion

With this new offering in place, becoming a Domain Cost Club Member makes more sense, especially if you already buy a number of domains each year along with privacy. πŸ™‚

Why look at Domain Cost Club?

review of domain cost club
Good question. With Domain Cost Club you can forget about paying extra for domain privacy services, promotional codes, crazy bundles, and discounted registration with poison-pill renewal fees:-

  1. Great no matter how many domains you buy a year.
  2. Domain Cost Club is the first and only domain registrar in the world to offer all domains at cost. New domains, transfers, renewals. No markup. Ever. Guaranteed!
  3. Just take a moment or two, to figure out what this actually means for you. And compare prices.
    Here, here and here.
  4. I find that they are easy to work with and their support is very responsive.
  5. I find their "Control Panel" to manage domains is modern, slick, clean and easy to work with.

Are you ready for the following benefits of Domain Cost Club membership?

  2. Hi David, thanks for the detail information on domain cost club. I understand that DCC provides free private registration service. However, one must be a member to enjoy this offer.

    May I know what is the price of the membership? Have you compare the price to NameCheap? NameCheap is also a domain provider with free private registration service. Hope to have your advice.

    • Hi Edmund,

      Thanks for your questions.

      Yes, you are correct, you need to be a member of Domain Cost Club to enjoy these benefits. I find it funny that the cost of Domain Cost Club’s Lite membership for one year is about a third less than the cost of domain privacy services for one domain name for one year with GoDaddy. Go figure. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      You learn some of the benefits of membership of Domain Cost Club in my review of Domain Cost Club. You see there, that currently the price of Domain Cost Club membership ranges from $9.99 to $99 per year depending on which membership package you go for, which is most likely based on your estimate of how many domain names you expect to purchase or renew with Domain Cost Club for the next 365 days. They do allow you to upgrade your membership package during the year should you find that necessary.

      Yes, I have compared the price to Namecheap. My understanding is that with Namecheap, the free private registration service is offered free for the first year. For subsequent years, they charge for the private registration service. If my understanding is not correct, please let me know.

      Also, when I compared the price of a dot com domain between Namecheap and Domain Cost Club, Domain Cost Club was cheaper once you are a Domain Cost Club Member.

      Also, I have compared the affiliate offer with Namecheap. My understanding is that they use cookies and the person you refer to them to buy a domain needs to buy that domain within a short time window in order for you to maybe earn less than a dollar. I would imagine most people do not buy domains that quick.

      So you do the work, get them business, but in my opinion do not get rewarded very well for passing business their way. I also believe you get paid for the first sale only and only if that happens within that short window. If my understanding is not correct, please let me know.

      So you have to factor in the cost of Domain Cost Club membership, the number of domains you buy per year, the number of domains requiring private registration services and the associated affiliate offers. When I factor in those factors, for me, Domain Cost Club comes out on top.

      When you factor in those factors and maybe others for yourself, Domain Cost Club may come out on top too.

      Cheers,
      David

  3. Hi David, it could be easy to start up your online business but the problem of how do you grow up you business is much much important. It is informative article of your pages, but by the way, there are so many domain registration services out there. Actually the visitors would look for the branding company for registration of their domain, just like godaddy, hostgator or even bluehost. I don’t see what advantages do DCC have. Do you have comparison with others? Thanks a lot.
    Good Day!

    • Hi Lok.w,

      Yes, I do have pricing comparisons between Domain Cost Club and Hostgator which you can read here.

      In that post you see how a person could potentially save over $9 for buying one .COM domain name with domain privacy services at Domain Cost Club for one year vs the price at Hostgator for buying one .COM domain name with domain privacy services for one year.

      Also in that post you see how a person could potentially save over $28 for buying two .COM domain names with domain privacy services at Domain Cost Club for one year vs the price at Hostgator for buying two .COM domain names with domain privacy services for one year.

      Also in that post you see how a person could potentially save over $87 for buying five .COM domain names with domain privacy services at Domain Cost Club for one year vs the price at Hostgator for buying five .COM domain names with domain privacy services for one year.

      Domain Cost Club is actually a fully ICANN-accredited domain registrar. You may or may not know that not all domain registrars are fully ICANN-accredited. The ones that are, are nearer to the β€œtop of the food chain” in the domain name industry and obtain domain names at “wholesale” prices.

      As far as I know, both Hostgator and GoDaddy are also fully ICANN-accredited domain registrars whereas Bluehost is not a fully ICAN-accredited domain registrar. And again, as far as I know, all three of them charge for domain privacy services on a per domain name per period (year or month) basis.

      Cheers,
      David

  4. Hi David. I went over your post and was curious about Domain Cost Club so I followed your link to their site. I didn’t like to be offered a free registration and to be asked later for a $99 yearly membership, but besides that, if there is a $3 difference between Domain Cost Club and let’s say GoDaddy for a .com domain, I’d have to buy 33 domains/year to justify the membership, did I get it wrong?

    • Hi Oscar,

      I see what you mean. Normally when you purchase a .COM domain name for a year, it will cost you around $10 – $15 depending on the seller. If you want domain privacy services as well, it will cost you anything from $0 to $15 extra per year per domain names. Many sellers offer it for $0 for the first year will actually charge you their full retail price for subsequent years, for example NameCheap.

      Regarding your justification question, I actually have a pricing comparisons between Domain Cost Club and Hostgator which you can read here.

      Although the “Unlimited” membership type at Domain Cost Club is $99.99 per year, the “Lite” membership type at Domain Cost Club is $9.99 per year plus there are other membership types between these two. People usually decide which type to purchase based on the estimated number of domains that they expect to buy or renew using their current active Domain Cost Club membership.

      You don’t have to buy or renew 33 domains to make this worthwhile, even buying or renewing one .COM domain name with domain privacy services at Domain Cost Club for one year is more cost effective than buying or renewing one .COM domain name with domain privacy services at Hostgator for one year.

      In that post you see how a person could potentially save over $9 for buying one .COM domain name with domain privacy services at Domain Cost Club for one year vs the price at Hostgator for buying one .COM domain name with domain privacy services for one year.

      Also in that post you see how a person could potentially save over $28 for buying two .COM domain names with domain privacy services at Domain Cost Club for one year vs the price at Hostgator for buying two .COM domain names with domain privacy services for one year.

      Also in that post you see how a person could potentially save over $87 for buying five .COM domain names with domain privacy services at Domain Cost Club for one year vs the price at Hostgator for buying five .COM domain names with domain privacy services for one year.

      Cheers,
      David
