Domain Name Price War!

The Internet is about to get more expensive, without justification some believe. VeriSign, the company that manages both .com and .net domain name registration, said that the registry fees for domain names will increase starting on 1st July 2010, per its agreements with ICANN.

Due to this factor, recently we can see many of hosting provider in Malaysia is playing domain price war. Some of the hosting provider trying to lower down the price for domain .com and .net which the reason is rewards to their valuable customer, some is trying to use world cup 2010 as a promotion to selling cheap .com and .net domain name, some hosting provider even selling .com and .net domain as low as MYR 0.99, but only for first 10 domains that selling from them. Some is playing marketing gimmick to attract more visitors to their site and more query for them, this can make more opportunity for their business. Some of them are trying to grab the market share by selling the domain with lower price.

As a consumer, their concern is very clear, PRICE. This is because domain is different with service, all the quality of the domain that provided by all registrar and reseller are the same, there will not have any good or bad thing for the domain provided by each hosting provider. Therefore, no matter the price war is their marketing gimmick, or whatever strategy of the company, as long as the price is suitable for us, now will be a very very good chance for us to grab your own domain name if you don’t have any yet.

For those interesting, you can always go to for all the latest price list. However, if you feel it’s still expensive for you, you can try to contact us at Contact or via MSN at [email protected] for better offer.
