Hiking the prices once someone is onboard and therefore somewhat of a captive audience (aka shatfing your clients) is something practiced by a number of the "cheapy" domain registration companies and hosts, who sting you to renew or transfer away, or have "interesting" clauses in their T&C's about who owns the domain etc.
As to whether £15.96 for your domain for 2 years is a good price, depends on if you take advantage of any of the "free" services they "give" with every domain
in this instance simply means they're not charging separately ...
