.net domain registration

A bit non-Swiss so off topic, but after 30mins on google its hard to sift through the super cheap webhosting offers to find an informed answer.

My .net domain is due for renewal in a few months, as a 9 year registration expires. My domain registrar (which does not provide my webhosting) networksolutions.com has gone up from about 15usd per year to over 30usd per year.

Is this the new price point? I think ICANN prices went up a lot a year or two ago. Or should I change registrant. If so any tips?

Thanks.

Re: .net domain registration

.net has always been one of the more expensive domains.

Can you change to a .com or .somethingelsethatischeaper?

Maybe check at GoDaddy. Can't get through their "first year" pricing, so go figure yourselves.

Re: .net domain registration

There are a million people that can act as a registrar. I was a registrar (through Enom) for many years selling at hefty discounts. Shop around.

Yes, that's right, but look at added services like DNS included in the registration price - e.g. I have my own DNS domain, and the registrar lets me configure the MX records to point to "Google email for your domain" servers, or whatever it is called now, without any additional fee.

(So, if one day GMail starts adding spam to my outgoing email, I can leave gmail w/o loosing my email address).

Re: .net domain registration

I have moved most of my sites (various domain extensions) to aruba.it. It's EUR 25 a year with unlimited hosting either Windows or Unix, with the domain included. No problem so far so I'm going to stick with them.
