Every year in during the Lunar New Year period, Singapore domain registrar would gather together and throw in offers that entice people to grab those promotional items. For this year, the various registrar is promoting .SG ccTLD (Country Code Top-Level Domain) at a good whopping price of SGD 8.00 (different registrar have different pricing model, depending on which is your preferred domain registrar).
Personally, I have been with Webvisions for the longest while since the days after I toggle between SingTel Internet Exchange (STiX) and PacNet, my final data centre that I have my servers co-located the longest was with Webvisions. So from then, I realized that since Webvisions have pretty good service and therefore for convenience sake, I registered for .SG domains from them.
In the past, I am into getting (.com.sg) for my domain due to the nature that it is meant for business usage. Then when .SG domain was released, it seems much more hassle-free to type 4 characters less! Therefore, my love for .SG domain reignited. Although I would love to have most of my domain names to be using (.com) because it is one of the most common domain name available but since I am starting small, I would love that local presence too. It pains me to register for (.sg) domain because of the high price I am paying for. (Approximately SGD 50 a year, comparing to less than SGD 14 a year if I have chosen .com / .net)
Hereby, I urge people (preferably if your audience are people in Singapore) to not let this offer run by! If you have any ideas in mind and wish to unleash it online, do it right away! Grab a .SG domain name at just SGD 8.00 for the first year! Let your idea nurture and then decide if your first year turnover make sense for you to pay for the 2nd year renewal (of course at a much higher rate).
