Just doing some research here.
I am wondering, I'm about to buy-in a domain buisness and would like to know what prices you would pay for domains?
I know they are about $9/year for a .com/.net/.org
Shared Hosting | Reseller Hosting | Virtual Private Servers | Dedicated Servers Servers Hosted at EU/UK PA, LA -SOON Miami!!
cPanel | WHM | Softaculous | Installatron | RVSiteBuilder | with FeHosting.com
RESELLERS: Get Your Domain Reseller Acc. / ClientExec / WHMCS / SSL Acc.
You have to check on both new registration and domain renewal charges. Both charge differently. Normally first payment is chearper than renewal. I believe $9/year for the domain extension is the new domain registration only.
If you paid $9 for the domain name for the 1st year as a new registration, if that's their signup deal. Then you can probably look to spend anywhere from $16 to $24 for the next year renewal. Thats what I've seen on average. Always look at the fine print before paying so you dont get hit with a surprise bill the next renewal time. For a .com domain you can expect to pay anywhere from 10.00 to 30.00 depending on the company and discounts.
It also depends on whether you're buying them directly from a the registrar or through a reseller. If buying directly, you can expect to pay around $9 to $10. If you're buying from a reseller, you'll expect to pay an average of about $5 more, but that really just depends on how greedy they are. We sell domains through OpenSRS. They charge us $10.52 for a .com and then we also charge our customers $10.52 for a .com so we make no money on domains at all. Actually, we lose money from OpenSRS' processing fees when adding funds to our reseller account. Selling domains, for us, is not another way to make money, but a way to bring in those who wish to purchase domains and hosting from the same place as a package.
I would like to pay $7-$12 range for a domain. Anything more than $12 is a bit much and I would rather look somewhere else. Unless it came with a good deal or something. But, the standard is normally $9-$10 for a domain.
im always paying 7.41 from godaddy domains and is just fine if they could be lower then n problemscool for us
For few valuable domain iam paying 35 to 40 usd . But atleast I can trust good and reputed vendors as Netsol and melborn IT
For rest iam paying inbetween 9 to 15 USd using godaddy or directi.
On some domains I have taken private registration to make domains more secured.
Being a registrar's representative, I know the real cost of domains and do not like speculators, which make people buy the good sound domains for hundreds and thousands. Every one should have the equal possibilities at this market.
