They are horrible for renewal prices. I started going with namecheap and find their prices to be pretty reasonable.

You can directly ask them.

$18 is more.
Better I would suggest you, Remove your card from their system.

Easy solution is move to Cloudflare Domain Registrar for free whois privacy/redaction + cost priced domain transfers. I wrote a guide on how you can do bulk domain transfers to Cloudflare Domain Registrar via Cloudflare API at https://community.centminmod.com/threads/16038/.

Hope that helps :)

Remove auto renew feature is the best way to control what you will pay for. Normally I renew a domain at Godaddy with price from $13 to $15 for a year.

It's usually higher than other registrars, so you should transfer out to another if you want. Usually, the transfer price is cheaper than the renewal price.

I have heard it said, that a little spin-off businesses was for premium domain name sales... people would search for a domain name using what appeared to be an independent (and free) web-based whois search engine, then when they found the domain (still available) that they wanted and jumped to a registrar to make their purchase, they would be surprised to see it was already registrar locked (seemingly on the same day the search took place) but - and here is the good bit, already available to buy as a premium domain several times more expensive than the original price... now how interesting is that?

Transfer your domain to Namecheap. The renewal price is cheaper than Godaddy and it offers WHOIS Protection for free.

You can try OnlineNIC and Namesilo for consistent low prices.

I hate some of the big companies because they always do this. Low prices and then absurd renewal costs. I had this issue with GoDaddy recently so I just transferred my domain away from them and then renewed it.
