Reg for $7 or Reg for $8- which is better

It was my understanding that it was worth the extra $1 to register at $8, and get the extra features, including url forwarding, email etc.
Any comments, I notice a lot of posts about regging at $7. Are you penny wise and pound foolish?

the only benefit I can see is that you can URL forward, and this is good for forwarding to Affiliates.

personally I go for the cheapo option, as I figure that it will take 12 months before traffic proper arrives and then renewal is $8 anyway.

I go for the $8 option. There is no huge benefit to doing this except that if I resell my domains, I don't get a lot of negative feed back from buyers and waste a lot of time answering unnecessary emails.

Having the URL forwarding has helped on occassions. For example if you want to use your domains to point traffic to other websites. We did this IDNF at the beginning. Not sure how much difference it made.

I have been doing the $8 as well, but alpha has a point. I was understanding that the url forwarding was needed for parking, but that was mistaken maybe?

yes. changing name server is all you need to do. and that can be done from the $6.99 option.

Well most Parking Sites support DNS forwarding, but I have come across those that couldn't.
