NationHosts (nationhosts.com), a web hosting provider, announced on Wednesday that they are offering domain name registration and transfers for $4.95 per year.
NationHosts has partnered with Directi (directi.com), a leading private-labeled Web Services Provider and one of the fastest growing ICANN Accredited Domain Registrars. Directi is selling the domains at a price of $6.49 and by reselling these domains NationHosts is incurring a $1.50 loss per domain.
Benjamin Kerensa, COO for NationHosts said, the company is incurring the loss in exchange for the extra traffic and customers it recieves in return. The offer is in response to the needs of their customers who have shifted to cheap domain registration thereby receiving inferior services. He also mentioned, NationHosts “wanted to better our reputation by beating their support and service while offering equally competitive prices.”
