    Moniker slashed prices by almost 50%

    Well, the title speaks for itself. The standard pricing for gTLDs: registrations/transfers/renewals is $9.95 (instead of $18.95).

    BTW - their website got the facelift too!

    Ok. Looks like they decided to move into the real world and go for volumes. They were giving those prices and better to favored customers already. Now it looks like they actually want to grow. Facelift wasn't huge. It still takes 60-75 seconds to login

    Hopefully they can maintain customer service at existing levels with the inevitable influx of bargain hunters, scammers, single domain holders, and noobs chasing the lower prices.

    Personally I feel they shouldn't have lowered their prices. I find their original price
    for .com actually reasonable, considering they also offer toll-free phone support
    and a control panel that practically does everything you can ask for.

    But if one of their goals is to go for the gold (e.g. overtake Go Daddy), then good
    luck to them. More so once they start getting a lot of "dumb" customers.

    I do not see what is so great about Moniker?

    1. Their price of $18.95 was much higher than the old BulkRegister price of $12.
    Since reading WHT on Domains I found that was high.

    2. Their new price of $9.95 is still high compaired to others.
    For example http://www.SRSPlus.com a division of Network Solutions has a $7.95 price.

    If I was dealing with a large number of Domains I would save $2 on each and that really adds up.

    So, I guess my question is, what makes them any better that the others?

    Moniker's "niche" is security. Their claim is they've yet to have any unauthorized
    transfer-out of a domain name.

    I've reviewed a couple of their security details. While I can't say what exactly they
    are, I can confidently tell you they're quite superb.

    Tell you what: PM MonikerMan. He gives a special deal for forum members.

    It would appear MonikerMan is no longer a member of WHT.

    Is here anything wrong with the forum indexes? Unter my name (above this post) is a foreign post and the post of me is behind when i edit it. Could any moderator check this please?

    Here is the real post from above:

    I never ordered any dedicated IP and i were very surprised when i heared that. Till yesterday i thought servage provided me clustered hosting with no dedicated ip.

    But Servage wrote to me:

    "We are unable to see which domain on your account was targeted. All attacks has been IP based and targeted towards your (dedicated) IP. "

    I can tell you what page it is/was, its no secret at all: It is a Fanpage of a small local music band of my village. It never was target of any complications. Thats why i am so surprised by this story.

    And no, no porn site, no illegal content, no disput with anyone especially not
    about the page.

    $18.85 was the published price used to scare off single domain customers as they focussed on, and gave lower prices to, large portfolio holders. If you ask or have a large portfolio you can get a much better price.

    I have sent MonikerMan an e-mail since his WHT PM is not allowed.

    Their CP is average, at best. I agree with your other post that their niche is security. Anybody going into the commodity domain registration business better have a good second string to their bow, coz the 1st one is gonna lose money. Just look at GoDaddy. They had to go into hosting (and become #1) just to stem the losses. It's a mug's game.

    Retails prices are lower than the Pre-paid plans???

    Can't understand why the retails prices are lower than the Pre-paid plans.

    I have prepaid funds , but unable to enjoy the new rebates.

    Make sure you're logged inside your account. Moniker's site (or any registrar's site
    for that matter) aren't designed to "know" it's you and what your privileges are
    unless you log in.

    But if that's still happening despite logging in, then just contact them.

    Didn't realize MonikerMan's account is disabled. Oh well...

    If you're holding a serious portfolio just give monte cahn an email and see what he can offer you. I've found that's the best way to approach any registrar, if you've got volume to offer they are more than willing to negotiate. Also Monte Cahn is quiet a nice guy and responds to emails quite rapidly, I emailed him last night and had a response within an hour and I am not even an active customer there.
