    If it's expensive, don't buy it. I think it's a bargain to be able to get the name I want, and I think they'll be in the roots next round. Who is holding a gun to your head?

    .WEB costs the same as .INFO at Verisign, by the way.

    Wouldn't a Registry rather sell a million names
    by Anonymous on Tuesday October 30 2001, @07:06AM (#3253)

    Wouldn't a Registry rather sell a million names
    at a dollar per name as opposed to no names
    at $35 per name ?

    What happened to the cheap domain names
    that ICANN promised ?

    .BIZ is cheaper than .COM

    If domain names were a dollar per year
    by Anonymous on Tuesday October 30 2001, @02:52PM (#3258)

    If domain names were a dollar per year,
    some might call that cheap.

    Even if a person had to "buy twice", that
    would only be $2 per year, which is cheaper
    than the $6 for .COM.

    How much does it really cost to host domain names ?
