Currently, most domain name providers offer free lifetime protection services to their customers, such as NameSilo, Namecheap, Dynadot, etc. However, GoDaddy maintains the same price for this service. Normally, if paying in USD, the price will be $9.99/year – quite high.
To save money, you apply the same methodology as domain renewal tips – take advantage of GoDaddy’s India-based offering, paying in Rupees (INR ₹).
At the Shopping Cart step, before making a payment, change Country / Region to India / English as shown below to change currency from USD $ to INR Rs.
After automatically reloading the web, you will see the price of domain name privacy reduced to ₹99.00 – save up to 82% compared to normal. Then you proceed to pay as usual.
Too simple but effective?
