Discussion in 'Domains' started by bullshitwebsites, Sep 12, 2008.
Why are domain registration fees going up?
Everything goes up every year, why should domains be any different?
Think twice now to register a domain name.
Because they can ... I can't see the base price of .com/net not being increased every year by VNDS when they're allowed to do it.
price of petrol, no doubt. sigh.
I guess we should all follow Nominet if we don't want the price rises and buy .*.uk since "72% of users are more likely to choose a .uk rather than a .com address when looking for information online"
With the price increase, will the domains make it more valuable?
Who is getting the $$$..ICAAn?
The processing is all automated .
I would believe that it may be because alot of the domain names are being taken up quite fast but i cannot see this as a good reason since they could just make new prefixes.
I would take a look at a few hosting and domain companies before i would purchase a domain name.
All the domains are taken really, but that means they do have more value the already registered ones.
If you go and buy a domain from someone else, theres no reason why its then worthless, it can be a good investment.
With regards to other tld's, there are a lot coming out and there is good talk of letting anyone soon register any tld they want, like .mycom for example or .host , however i think its going to be a $50,000 reg fee for your own TLD! So that may just be for companies then (or people with too much money who should be giving some to me instead)
Agreed, i like the idea of registration of own tld's.
There would be alot of strange ones if the people with lots of money had their own.
I still think that they should have allowed the .xxx domain for porn sites.
