Today Godadday charged me automatically for my domain name when it is expired but seem with $18.17 for renewing a .com domain, this price is so high, right? any comments? should I enable auto-renew in my Godaddy acccount?
Was that with Whois protection or their business protection I think they call it? We have been receiving a lot of domain business as a result of their high prices so I agree there are better options out there.
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/.
