    Only $16 for a .tv

    How can Domaindiscover offer such low pricing for these two TLD's?

    This is well below wholesale for .tv domains.

    That is what I thought, I understand how they can offer .ws domains at this price.... however the .tv pricing does not add up!

    thewitt, what is the lowest wholesale pricing .tv offer to its registrars?

    Hello
    We have occasionally offered unusual TLDs at cost or below cost on the basis that we normally don't sell any of them and it simplifies the pricing charts.

    If we ever sold one it would not be the end of the world.

    However, with .tv and .ws there is the risk that you could sell a few and have a "nasty accident".

    When I was doing it it was extensions like .LV and .LI that we never really sold many of.

    We sold so few we dropped them eventually.

    Domains

    Well if they are sucessful at selling the other domains which is a major increase over wholesale they are probally just sliding the profits over to .tv thats what Im seeing here

    Possibly doing it as a why to move .tv

    I find those prices for .TV even stranger when their dot coms are so expensive.

    They may want to stimulate interest or make money on the renewals.
