    Insight into acquiring bulk domain names.
    I am currently in the market to purchase five thousand different domain names. I have already found the colo server but before I make the domain name purchase I am wondering if there are any domain registrars out there who are willing to give me a deeper discount due to the quantity of names I want to buy at once. I have already compiled an A-Z list of these domains and I am very familiar with the Godaddy's of the domain world out there and their domain management interfaces, but I am looking to shave a few bucks off of the cost per domain name. Any techniques or advice any of you may have in this regard that I can utilize and execute before the domain purchase please pass them on to me. Thanks in advance.

    I haven't seen cheaper than the $4.95 that Netfirms offer...

    Deals on bulk domain registration may only be cut by the domain registrars.

    You might make an inquiry at namepros dot com. Lots of heavy domainers over there.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    Slightly off topic (appologies for that)... Saw this on their site:


    Are they hoping Mr. Luzhkov (the mayor of Moscow) will buy it from them?

    It's been a few years since I was involved with registering that many domains and I don't remember even if we got a discount, let alone who we were using...

    Looking at the link Geno posted though, makes me wonder how tough it'd be to become an acredited registrar these days. Might save a few bucks that route.

    Now let's try that again. I wonder how hard it'd be to find a Ferrari in my driveway.

    Thats a great idea. I have an Enom account that has never been used but I thought I had to pay $8.95 per name to even use the account. I will look into it though. I am pumped about buying these names as they are the initial phase of a dream project I have launched with my own capital that is 6 years in the making. If this works out as I plan, this will be only the tip of the iceberg, I expect to need over 1,000,000 ..yes thats 1 million plus domain names eventually. Great posts so far people,very helpful, thanks. Oh and by the way, I need to start another thread soon entitled "How do I get a micro loan for ten million US?"

    From the netfirms website:

    Pricing is $4.95 for first year. Domain will renew at $9.95 per year thereafter. Limit five $4.95 domain names per customer.

    I bet at least half of the ones brianboru wants to register will be sold during the first year...

    Hi there Brian,

    Having worked at a registrar and being a domainer myself, cheap does not always mean good! When you go with an inferior registrar, you are taking many chances with your prized virtual real estate! Go with a company like Moniker.com or DomainDiscover. Not only will they cut you a good deal, but there service is top notch~ your domains will be protected.

    When there is a problem with your name at an inferior registrar, good luck on trying to get it resolved. The same concern can be said for the Wal-Mart of names-GoDaddy.

    If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

    I tried a cheap domain once and it was a big mistake when I wanted to go transfer any of them. Nothing automated about that part and it took way too much of my time. That was only for 20 domains. Can't imagine the headache of several thoushand.

    I'm going to PM you the name and email address of my dedicated account executive at GoDaddy. Once you reach a certain number of domains they give nice discounts and I'm sure with the quantity you are talking about it would be worth checking them out.
