Many domains are simply $1.99 with NO OTHER PURCHASE NEEDED
There is always at least ONE or TWO domain name TLDs that are simply $1.99 with NO OTHER PURCHASE NECESSARY.
Right now .info and another valuable TLD are that price -- $1.99.
For a long time, .COM was $1.99. It's still the cheapest at HostingDude.com that you'll find anywhere.
I'm a long-time customer and I've seen everything in this business, with all registrars. HostingDude.com is, as another poster in this thread said: LEGIT and AMAZING.
I'll also add: DEPENDABLE, CHEAP, HELPFUL, easily ABLE TO GET ON THE PHONE, and full of HOSTING SERVICES that are also FEATURE-RICH and DIRT-CHEAP for HIGH VALUE.
Truly, it puzzles me why people even consider the higher-priced places -- HostingDude is better, AND cheaper.
