The cost of per name year actually depends on the volume of registrations and respective TLD:

For instance, it would cost US$6.25+ for registering, renewing or transferring a .com.

It's $6.25 per domain plus all of the thousands of dollars in yearly ICANN and other fees.

Even if you are doing abount 1,000,000 domains it would be shocking if you could get the price down to $6.50 per domain.
After time and support (unless you and your employees work for nothing, or if you only have a few hours of support a day) it is hard to really sell it below $7.00 without really taking a potential loss.

I agree with Tiggee, anything below $7 / $8 is not worth selling!

Certain extensions such as .biz, .name etc are like 5.50 ea but overall 6.25 is the registrar cost. With a number of companies selling for 6.99 or under 8.00 it is very hard to many any money on domain names alone

I believe most of you guys are incorrect on the fees. Anyone with serious thoughts on this, please contact me. I am serious about doing this and would like to partner up 50/50.

Well I was serious too. That I is why I spent the better part of 80 hours drafting up all my documents, reading, and talking to the "right" people on the phone. After it was all said and done I realized (IMHO) the only money to be made was in the drop market and just one connection to the registry didn't seem worth it to me. But hey, prove us all wrong if you can. BTW, what you makes you believe we all are wrong?

Sorry, but I probably won't just "partner" with anybody out there when it comes to serious business like ICANN accreditation. Or are you talking about registering or transferring a domain name?

Probably the actual cost of domain's depends upon the volume of the registration, they usually get a good bulk discount on large volume.

You know it takes like an hour to look through most of the fees.
After you spend another 20 hours you will notice a few more hidden here and there.
Why do you think registrars all offer hosting and other services? There is "NO" money in domain names anymore. It's not like the good old days of NetSol when they would charge $150 per year per name.

But you must be right..... Domains are only a few cents per year.
When you do start your business please let all us know. We would love to buy from you if you could manage to sell them for a $1.

I'm sure they (NetSol) started out asking for that much, but was only curbed down by the U.S. Department of Commerce later. Those greedy bastards!
