He had a quite a few domains registered and we’d rebuilt some of his websites and well, I was getting confused because they were registered with different companies.
I suggested he get them all in one spot so it was easier to manage. As a part of that conversation I found out that one domain was up renewal at $140 for 2 years!
I can’t say which company it was but I’ll give you a hint – they’re in Melbourne and they’re an IT company – you work it out.
What? – 140 bucks, that is absolutely ridiculous! I pay $38 for 2 years, and there is probably cheaper.
Even if there is cheaper around I still use the one registrar – http://www.cheapdomains.com.au – I don’t want domains registered all over the place, too damn hard to keep a track of otherwise. Plus the support I get from these guys is great, people actually answer the phone and really help if there’s an issue.
Anyway, I registered another domain last week and it only cost me $16.00 for the 2 years. On the website it still says $38 but I was only charged $16?
I actually have no idea what that is about. I did hear something a while back about the ICANN Registrar (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names & Numbers) protocol changing and gossip about the idea of free domains.o
Does anyone know something I don’t, make a comment if you do or if you don’t.
