Recently I renewed one of my website since the domain was going to expire. This website of mine is registered under GoDaddy.com. And like normally what people do when they are renewing their domains or hostings is to find renewal discount codes, hoping to get discount – no matter how small the discount is. Sometimes people are spending hours trying to get the working discount codes and in the end, end up getting nothing but disappointment. They still need to pay the full amount of the renewal price.
Well, I almost fell into the same hole again this year like other people renewing their domains, until I outsmarted myself. Instead of searching for renewal codes, I searched for “why GoDaddy renewal codes never working” on Google. Then I found a surprising article by GoDaddy itself.
GoDaddy Renewal Codes Rarely Working. Here’s Why.
Because they are secondhand codes.
This is what’s written on GoDaddy help page, “The short answer is that you can’t really find legit GoDaddy renewal codes anywhere. But that doesn’t mean they’re not available if you know how they work.”.
In short, don’t waste your time looking for GoDaddy renewal codes on various coupon websites since none of them are working.
Most of the renewal codes published on discounts websites are called “Secondhand codes” – GoDaddy explained on its help page. This secondhand codes were indeed working before to those who owned the renewal codes originally. And once they used it, then it has no value other than string of alphabets.
As told on its help page, GoDaddy priced their services very competitively so leaving them with small margins – that’s why it’s very rare even for GoDaddy themselves to issue a renewal code.
So is there a way to get GoDaddy Working Renewal Codes?
Yes, as a matter of fact why there are many secondhand codes on the markets? That’s because there’s a way to get the actually-working renewal codes. According to GoDaddy help page, here’s how you can get it.
1) Sign up to GoDaddy email list. If you’re eligible for a renewal discount, and you’re signed up to the email list, GoDaddy shall deliver it directly to your inbox.
