Your question was: Anybody us "website tonight" from godaddy.com?.
Well the cheapest is The Planet (formerly EV1Servers). There is no redemption fee, it is just the renewal fee, they don't tack an extra hundred bucks onto it for themselves. I've renewed several domains over the years that had expired weeks beforehand.
Edit: although I believe their HostGator registration is only open to their dedicated server customers..
During the 45 day expired window you can renew at renewal fee.There is a $60 fee charged via Verisign themselves starting at the beginning of RGP. The registrar can then mark up the price from that point like registrations themselves. If a registry is renewing during RGP and not charging you then they are losing $60 a pop...
Ah ok, I guess I never realize there is also a pre-redemption period...
Thanks for the redemption info.
On the bolded quote, that's exactly the problem - you can't just add a specified amount to have an even $8 or whatever the .com cost. You can add $50, but in the end your stuck with the same problem of left over monies...
I would' have let it quietly drop - and prob would be able to register it again for reg fee..
Name is probably not even worth $125 being a .BE...
Unlikely that domainers would be waiting to snap/register it the moment it got deleted.
Many ccTLD do not have a long redemption period, if at all (check to see)..
That is very expensive for taking a .be HostGator out of redemption http://dns.be/en/home.php?n=43.002 It is possible to transfer the name elsewhere even if it's in redemption but it's more expensive:..
Last I checked, VeriSign charges every registrar $40 to redeem a .com. Each.
Registrar can set their respective RGP prices towards end users to cover any.
And all costs...and make a little money while at it.
One can feel all they want it's exorbitant, it's a scam, whatever. However, it.
Is within the Registry's, and the registrar's, discretion how much to charge to.
Offer that privilege to another to begin with.
Stay on top of your renewals and this shouldn't have to occur. Last I checked.
On this, redemption is not a requirement among registrars to offer to their end.
Users, although many do so anyway.
And that's if the Registry of that extension offers that option to registrars in.
The first place...
That sucks. I don't have experience with adding funds to a Moniker account. I just pay when I get them. That techinque works at Dynadot, then again, I think you can just apply the remaining balance combined with a regular payment there.
