The good part is, you don’t have to buy additional years to enjoy discounted rates. You can get a domain name for just a year if you like. Other registrars ask you to buy two years or more in order to get discount on the first year rates. Hostinger doesn’t. If you find renewal prices to be high, you can always transfer your domain to another registrar like Namecheap.
With a domain name, you will need web hosting to start your website. Hostinger is offering their cheapest shared hosting plan at even more discounted rates.
