It doesn’t matter what the price of the domain costs you; presuming your are buying a premium domain name for your business. The annual cost of the registration will be dependant on where it is registered.
Here are a few examples to look at:
Godaddy | .COM = $14.99 per year | .NET = $11.99 – $16.99 | .ORG = $8.99 – $19.99
Namecheap | .COM = $10.59 per year | .NET = $12.78 | .ORG = $12.38
These are two of the biggest registrars in the world, in actual fact Godaddy is the number one in the world.
These are just a few examples; there are literally hundreds of registrars, just make a seach in Google in you will be amazed by the results.
The COM/NET/ORG are probably the most well known of all the (TLD) extensions but there are hundreds more such as: info – .co.uk – .us – the list is endless. The prices of these other extensions is hugely variable as well, from a few dollars into the hundreds and thousands. You need to to know what is best for you.
