Cloudflare Domain Pricing - the cheapest domain registrar

Here is the Cloudflare domain pricing for over 250 TLDs including .com, .net, org, and all others. Cloudflare gives you the cheapest domain registration pricing because they only charge you for what the domain cost them, nothing more!

So, yeah, they don't make any profit from selling those domains. What you pay is the price for the domain registry (not registrar - there is a difference) and ICANN.

What Is Domain Registry

Domain registry is the company that owns a domain extension like .com, .net, and so on. For instance, .com is owned by Verisign.

So, Verisign, is the domain registry of .com extension where Godaddy, NameCheap, and all others are the domain registrar who sells the .com domain on behalf of Verisign.

Different domain registries charge different amounts for their domain extensions. This is mostly why the domain pricing varies for different domain extensions.


ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) kind of moderates the domain names. So, they also charge $0.18 for most of the domain extensions.

You can see a list of all the domain extensions that require ICANN fee.

What Is Domain Registrar

Domain registrars are the ones who actually sell the domain names to the consumers like you and me. For instance, Godaddy, NameCheap, etc. are all domain registrars.

Domain registrars pay the domain registries and ICANN and then add some additional markup price to make a profit.

You may see a wide difference in the pricing of the same domain from one registrar to another. That's because of the wide difference in the mark-up pricing added by these domain registrars.

Speaking of domain registrars, you can read this article to know whether domain registrars affect website speed?

Cloudflare Domain Registrar

You may know Cloudflare for their awesome CDN and DNS services but they are also a domain registrar.

But unlike other domain registrars, Cloudflare doesn't let your actually register a domain from them, at least not until now. Instead, they allow the transfer of your domain names to them. So, if you have already bought a domain from a registrar, you can transfer it to Cloudflare and then keep renewing from them.

Also, unlike other domain registrars, Cloudflare doesn't add anything extra to the domain prices. So, they don't make any profits from selling the domain names. This is why you can buy domains from them with the cheapest pricing available in the market.

Therefore, you can combine the price of the domain registry and ICANN to get what Cloudflare charges for the domains.

Cloudflare is still a new registrar and they don't support all the domain extensions. So, you may not find all the extensions you are looking for in this list. But Cloudflare already supports over 250 domain extensions so their list is pretty big already and they are adding more to the list. So, there is a very good chance that they already support your preferred domain extension.

Here is a list of all the Top-Level Domains that are supported by Cloudflare.

Cloudflare Domain Pricing

Cloudflare doesn't disclose the pricing list of the domains because of their contract with the domain registries. So, you can only see their domain pricing while transferring your existing domain to Cloudflare. In other words, you will need to have an existing TLD in your Cloudflare account in order to see its price. It also has to be transferable to Cloudflare at that time. For instance, you can't transfer a domain if you registered or transferred that domain or changed its contact information in the last 60 days.

However, there is a way of finding out how much each domain cost in Cloudflare using this CloudDump GitHub repository. This pricing list is also based on the one provided in Actual Domain Prices list from this GitHub page which was generated using that CloudDump repo.

All the prices are in USD.

  1. This is the best list I've found.
    The prices have gone up twice, though, and more domains have been added.
    An update would be greatly appreciated. This info is very hard to find.

  2. The intention of the overview is great but as it stands here it is not really helpful without knowing that it's monthly, annual or some other time frame. Please amend the article with the time period that applies to the list.

    1. Domain registrations are always annual. Anyone who has ever registered a domain name knows that, so the information is unnecessary.
