This article explains about the meaning behind the different domain registrar fees and why are some more expensive than others. We will also be talking about the different aspects of benefits and disadvantages that come with registering a domain on a more expensive registrar than the less expensive ones.
Over the past few years, I have been into domain buying and selling most of my domains that I have bought were from popular domain registrars that charge low prices from $6-10 a domain, but this only came in when I became wearier of these companies that sell domains for these low prices. From the beginning when I knew nothing about domain buying and only bought a domain for the sake of it, “just to have a website name”. This domain was bought for around $20, but with it I got 24/7 support and a TOL line where I was able to talk to someone on different aspects of the domain functions and how to work it. This of course was very helpful at the time, as I didn’t know the first thing on how to set name servers, how to redirect domains or even how the domain worked, but these kind of registrars that are quite small and not very successful try to promote their businesses by offering their customers, an amazing plus to what they have bought, which included the very important support on all the aspects of the domain running.
As I got more wiser and knew a little bit more about all the different kinds of domain registers and knew the different prices that these registrars have set, I didn’t really need all that help, as I was able to do it all by myself. Therefore I went for registrars that charged incredibly low prices for domains compared to the high priced domain registrars. This was a benefit as I didn’t need any of the help which of course the these low priced domain registrars didn’t really offer, or did but it took them a while to solve the problem you had, as they have a much higher customer count.
On the other hand these domain registrars had much more superior Control Panels for your domain names where you are able to control your domain name servers, emails and redirections, plus much more and each of these control panels came with their own guides on how to use them. Therefore you didn’t even think of looking back at the high priced domains, as you do not need them, because all this and more can be accomplished for a much lower price.
Overall if you are new to the domain market and its functionalities and would like some help, I would recommend reading up reviews on a few of the domain registrars and see which ones offer the most help and go for those, but if do not need any help what so ever, just go buy a really cheap domain and enjoy it for a low price. What’s the point if you know it all anyway.
