    NetSol Promotion

    $11,99 Domains!

    It is valid for domain name registrations & domain-transfers and the offer expires on July 30, 2005.

    So, who likes...

    Nah, I'll pass. I can still get them for $6-$7 at domainsite.

    I don't think I've ever paid more than $9.99 to register a domain

    I know that! I would not register a domain either (probably not even for $6,95), but I thought that a price difference between $35 and $11.99 is significant, so someone would have found this just interesting.

    Sorry if I caused any inconvenience.

    Inconvenience? What the heck are you talking about? Talking about domain names and the domain name business are what thie Domain Name Section is all about.

    I appreciated your post, Fulk.

    It's very interesting information from a marketing standpoint. If NetSol is lowering their price down to about 1/3 of their normal price, then it says a lot about the domain name business... It's definitely going to keep getting more and more competitive.

    4solutions,

    I do totally agree with you

    D4C,

    Behind the league? I would not really say that. At GoDaddy you register domain names for $8.75/year and NetSol offered it for $35/year if i am not wrong.

    Now if you look at the statistics at RegistrarStats, you can see that GoDaddy has around 9 million registrations while NetSol has around 6,5 million. Domain Registration fee for Registrar (let's take .com for instance) is $6.25

    Now you have to do some math:

    For GoDaddy: Revenue per registration is $2.5
    Total Revenue approximate: $22 million

    For NetSol: Revenue per registration: $28.75
    Total Revenue approximate: $186 million

    Also as you know GoDaddy has Reseller programs which I assume is the reason for that high domain name registration number. But on the other hand it means their revenue per registration may be below $2.5.

    Of course the information above is not exact, but somewhat approximate. Registrars also offer different services like: web hosting, dedicated servers and so on.

    But the fact is fact:


    Godaddy: Total Revenue approximate: $22 million
    NetSol: Total Revenue approximate: $186 million

    It makes sense, does not it?

    You betcha, maxo. Netsol knows they can hardly compete price-
    wise, but better to remain profitable nonetheless.

    Not to mention netsol's offering 24/7 toll-free phone support. With
    that and trying to make money thru other means, it's reasonable
    to charge high for domain registrations.

    And Fulk! No need to apologize, it's still something to talk about,
    anyway.

    davezan,

    Yea, but I have to admit NetSol's Customer Support is probably the best in the industry. I always used to get response from them via E-mail in 10-20 minutes. Personally I think that $35/year was too much, but I have seen lots of customers choosing them because of customer support and reputation.

    I have never heard horror stories about Netsol, but I have seen lots of them about GoDaddy around WHT. Maybe it's because it's different market segment

    don't go with yahoo, their support is NULL, and if you ever decide to change registrar, they make it the most difficult possible

    mixDev,

    You might try to search around for feedback regarding Yahoo.

    What I know is that they are Reseller of MelbourneIT and as far as I know they do not offer promotion anymore. Domain Registration costs $9.95/year there.

    Yes melbourne is the real registrar behind Yahoo, and when there are problems, they blame yahoo, yahoo never answers, you need a key, after tons of mails yahoo responds.. is a mess..


    netsol should have a promotion for domain renewals :/

    I was trying to transfer a domain from NetSol to a competitor and had password problems. (My own fault.) Called their 24/7 toll-free phone support and was pleasantly surprised as to how I was treated and that they actually knew what they were doing. Problem was on my end.

    I could no longer justify the cost for a hobby site domain or I would have stayed with them but were glad to see the level of protection they offered to prevent fraudulent transfers.

    Yahoo promotion for cheap domains just got up again. I think Yahoo is doing these promotions to increase domain registrar stats.
