I'm currently looking into buying a domain name for a personal project. I see a lot of sites offer 1st year discounts, where your first year for certain .com domains (or other certain domains) will cost only 99 cents and the 17/18 cent ICANN registration fee.
What I'm wondering is whether or not I can sign up for that cheap first year with one registrar and then move my domain to a registrar with cheaper domain renewal services?
I'm looking at 1and1 for getting the cheap first year and then renewing it with a different registrar such as Namecheap.
Edit: I am not looking at using web hosting or email services of any sort, just getting a domain name. Part of my personal project is hosting these services on my own.
