I'm involved in starting a UK domain registrar and I need some opinions on pricing. The site's main competitors will be 123reg and ukreg. Thses sites hide their total charge... so our company statement will be "no hidden charges."
Will all be £7.99 a year with no extra charges. Transfer to us will be £6.99 including 1 year extension.
We cant even start to compete on pricing with this extension, 123reg are charging £6.79 in total. So we have decided to initially charge £7.99 for registration and £6.99 for renewal every 2 years.
Included with every registration
Control panel that is fully functional and works in real time
Catch-all E-mail forwarding

Change IPS Tag (UK domains only)
Change Contact Details
Full Domain Management Control

So what do you guys think? I'd love to hear your comments.
are you gonna be doing co.uk`s as well, if so how much?
sounds good, I was looking for a decent uk dns service and couldn`t find one that offered all the bells and whistles (apart from freeparking and they are a joke, based in the USA but can charge in pounds is hardly a uk dns service). Where are you based, are your dns servers in the uk also? Thanks.
We are adding another feature called profiles, so in each profile you have your registration info/name servers etc... and so you can change your domains globally by selecting the profile you want to use with your selected names.
If you have a lot of domains, this would come in useful.
Would you be interested in some beta testing of our CP, we want to get this right the first time
Could you have it so when i register a new domain it automatically uses my default profile for the nameservers etc.. this would save me from having to do anything once i have submitted the registration.
