Registering .ch domain [just got cheaper]

Well, in the first year anyway.....Switch now don't charge a 40 franc setup fee - just 35 francs per year for your domain.

So if you were holding off because the whole 75 franc payment made you sick (or you bought the $8.99 .com) then you're in luck...

Re: Registering .ch domain just got cheaper

Just for the record - did a huge pile of .ch last night at precisely 12:01am... I'm all for reductions in the .ch domain - they are still really expensive compared to TLDs. They say they can pass on the price savings due to an increased number of domains and a more efficient registration process - I'll vote to that - the old one was awful!

I'd like to see them go further with that move and bring the yearly price down to say 20 francs. They could make this possible by no longer sending out paper based invoices, mahnungs, etc and just make everything credit card only. Except that the average Swiss business would probably have a fit - but hey they could offer the old paper based way at 35, and reduced price for the electronic only version. Maybe it will happen in a few years.

Re: Registering .ch domain just got cheaper

Darn! I wish I would have read this thread a few minutes earlier. I just paid 46 euro (around 72 francs) to register a .ch website because the normal price with my provider was 82 euro and I thought that was a bargain for a .ch name. Now that I see I could have gotten it through SWITCH for 35 francs I could s*%@ myself. That would have been 2 years for the price of 1 compared to what I paid. Oh well.... live and learn. Grrrrrrr... At least my bandwidth is cheap.

Re: Registering .ch domain just got cheaper

I always register my domains directly, I don't know - I just don't like the idea of a third party ISP doing it for me...

Dude - your avatar needs some serious work....

Re: Registering .ch domain just got cheaper

I know... I used to register them directly when I lived in the USA but here I just choose to let a service do it.

And I know about my Avatar... I'm just not too motivated to do something clever with it..... yet.

It's hurting my eyes.... There are plenty of other useless avatars in the gallery - or use google, there's plenty of stuff to nick from other forums I know some people around here that might vote your reputation down for that avatar... lol..

3 beers have been wasted in the registering of your campaign, sorry, domains.

Re: Registering .ch domain just got cheaper

http://www.switch.ch website says 27 CHF price is from Nov not from Oct. Further www.diltech.in gives domain and website for free.

They got the months muddled! The charge is now CHF27.00. Your loves Flash and hates search engines... And it's gone - probably for the best.
