I understand that when you sign up you get a free trial and then after the trial you are charged. (exept for the domain, you are charged for straight away).

I entered a coupon code and consequently it never applied for whatever reason (as ive noticed im not the only one) so ill contact customer support for that.

What im curious to know, is, how much am I paying and in what timeframe? Am I billed monthly, yearly or what? Nothing I’ve recieved seems to stipulate this?

A promo code would be a discount for the first year, so I expect that you pay for the entire year up front at a discount.

I pay two years at a time, plus the occasional one-year renewals of the domains I have registered here. To find out your billing status, use the panel:
