Yep, however you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else to confirm my answer as I am unsure. Better yet, why don't you email the Godaddy guys because they can give you an answer better...

Well if Verisign is charging $6 to every ICANN registar for every .com reg, then how do you expect a one dollar domain. Personally I think it's partially your fault for sending them your credit card info..


Comment #2

Get a "tursted" HostGator name registar like godaddy or enom..

Comment #3

I have to be honest here....

It's fairly clear that it's 1 HostGator per customer.

"* Limit of one HostGator per customer. Additional domains $7.95 each. ".

And in your post you make it clear that you registered 2....

And you are surprised somehow?.

Please explain..

Not that much! ICANN charges some pennies (if I'm not completely wrong)..

Comment #5

ICANN charges .25 per HostGator no matter what extension, but then the person that owns the extension (regristy) can charge whatever they want. Verisign owns the .com extension, and charge $6...

Comment #6

If you want discount domains, just use the godaddy loophole. No need to use unsecure methods of getting cheaper domains...

Comment #7

And it is for new customer only. 1 HostGator per customer...

Comment #8

Tandiono, you are in the wrong here. And when you complain to them, please be a little nicer, it helps...

Comment #9

Why should they refund you if you tried to purchase 2 domains from them when the TOS says 1 HostGator per customer?.


Comment #11

Agreed, Sorry but I think you are in the wrong here...

Comment #12

Are you trying to cheat them or they cheated you?.

* Limit of one HostGator per customer. Additional domains $7.95 each..

** Free HostGator name registration does not apply to all HostGator extensions. The following HostGator extensions are only available at an extra charge: .tv and .cc...

What do you think sibaong? ru indonesian? just wondering hehe..

Comment #14

Ok they cheated you, but ....

IMO... you cheated them.

Well, I think you should reg both domains with different account and different credit card.


Comment #15

Apa kabar pak? haha.. well I register different new HostGator with new acc... HostGator A with acc A while HostGator B with acc B.. Look whose fault now?..

Comment #16

I suppose this indicates you did indeed tried to defraud them and they likely became suspicious because both accounts A and B are from the same IP address, consider yourself lucky your account has not been suspended if that is the case...

Comment #17

Kabar baik, hope you too.

Singaporean? I have gf in runescape, shes from singapore.

Hmm I dunno, maybe both of you are trying to cheated each other.


Comment #18

"* Limit of one HostGator per customer. Additional domains $7.95 each. ".

It's not really their fault. More of your fault, because you didn't read or misread that sentence...

Comment #19


The terms on their website clearly state 1 per CUSTOMER, not 1 per ACCOUNT that a customer creates....

You don't think you were trying to cheat them?.
