$6.39 from gdtechindia, is it possible?


I found below site yesterday, stating com/net/org for $6.39. Has anyone of you heard of it?

http://partners.gdtechindia.com/rese...action=pricing

How is it possible? as it's price is lower than directi's Slab 5.

Thanks

.com domain price is only $6 to the registrar.

$6.39 is very doable. ( bet they don't stay that price or are high on the addons)

all depends how greedy the registrar wants to be, the amount of features they offer with the domain vs charge for extras, etc...

$8ish is a FAIR price if it includes self service features like forwarding.
(uses some their pc resources)

sometimes they will "sale" lower than cost, and hope to make it up on other services they sale.


I generally pay $7
although I can get a CONSTANT $6.49 on a reseller account, which is less pretty and more manual.

.com price for the registrar is 6.25$

6$ paid to the registry, and 0.25$ to ICANN

that gives only 0.14$ for customer support, servers, etc...

hmmm I am going to try them out.. the only thing that I don't like so far, is the ping time. I assume their website is hosted on a server in asia, so when loading their site it loads slower. I'll try 1 domain out and see how they are.

You must remember that the Paypal/Creditcard fees are most probably on top of that.

My personal advise would be to go with the established registrar, not some not-so-known Asian company (or one man show).

Good luck, anyway.

well I've been waiting about 12 hrs.. and my domain isn't register. I sent them a PM, so mabye they will get back to me.

The interface seem's less user friendly, I still cannot find the options to edit my DNS or other functions.. I will post more later once they register the domain for me.

Well FreshFroot. That's the kind of service you can expect for such a low price.

I agree... at 1st they had good support, but latly I haven't been able to contact them. I will still try them out, with a domain I don't have much use for and check it out further.
