Hey guys, I'm in search for a domain registration site that offers the .nc domain. I found one at 101domain but they are charging $124 for a single domain. The official site is in another language and I haven't been able to navigate my way through it.
Anyway, is anyone aware of another site that offers a .nc domain registration for cheaper than $124, or is that what I'm going to have to end up paying?
The .nc Registry web site is actually quite easy to navigate even if you don't speak French....:
Click on "Informations" - the French and English word are the same here, except that the French word takes a plural s.
On the next page you see "Tarifs". No prizes for guessing what that means!
Click on it and you get the fee, in local currency. Now all you need to do is go to a currency conversion site like xe.com to convert this into your own currency.
Simples (as the Meerkat would say)
However... (and you do need to know French for this) - if you look at the registration requirements ("Qui peut obtenir un nom en .nc ?") you will see that .nc has a local presence requirement... which probably explains why 101Domain charge as much as they do. They need to provide your local presence, and that obviously comes at a price.
