enom etp price too high?


hi,

i got an ETP account at enom directly many many years ago, i am the ETP myself. i can remember i got the 8,95$ pricing.
no i checked back to that account after not using it a long time so my price for com/net/org already went up to 10.50$. how can that be ? is that normal ? i understand that there are no 6,95 accounts out there anymore, but moving up to 10.50 is quite a bit too high, although i spent a few thousand usd years ago on enom.

any ideas what to do here ? tipps to lower the price or better go and get a free enom reseller account from a maybe unknown etp ?

the registry raised their prices, which raised the price enom pays.

so enom passed on the price increases.

it's ok to keep the etp account, and have a cheaper account under someone else.

The price has been going up due to the ICANN increases. All of the registrars are hit with the new charges, though some eat the extra costs to appear lower.

Is your ETP directly with enom, or though a reseller? Basically, costs are up $1.55, whatever level of reseller you were.

icann raised their prices several times. It wasn't just a big $1.55 increase at once.
We are probably set for another increase in a year or so.

I'm an ETP also. My pricing still at $8.50 according to the price list. Besides, .com prices never went up this year. Something odd here.

My pricing is the same ast stub. Would have thought your prices would have gone up in line with ours.

Mine has gone from the $8.95 to now $10.50 as well. Been using them for years. I have a few hundred names there, but it's to the point I may be moving to stay competitive.
Maybe it's volume, or maybe the ones with large initial deposits didn't get the increase and the rest of us are footing the bill?

You forget resellers having pricing $8.50 atm used to register domains at $6.95/year.
So it's $1.55 increase for everyone.

aha, strange ... what was your pricing at the beginning ? 6,95? so a rise of 1,55 to 8,50 ? right?

Reseller always have better price for the each certain domain name then any end user. I suppose that is normal.

They may want to handle large accounts only, so they keep higher prices for resellers who spend less.

think the lowest that enom do domains now is $8.50 which is higher than a number of other places, enom aren't strictly competitive any more based on price alone.

correct Mike. How about you? But that raise was some time ago, when Verisign last raised their prices. Not recently. So you were paying $8.95. so the increase is in line with mine? (actually smaller than mine, relatively). I don't see the beef?

@atmike. You can get better prices by switching to a Reseller Account at an ETP $8.95.. $9.50. PM me if you want a $9.50 recommendation (at a good ETP... nothing to do with me). else look in the for sale forums.
