    register.com another Registerfly.com on making

    If you want to renew your domain their fee is US $35 (I DON'T SEE WHY) and you can't move your domain any time you want as to obtain your uthorization code you have to call the number which most of the time there is no answer, the wait time can easily be 15 minutes or more and has to be between 8am - 6pm EST Monday to Friday, so for international call will cost you heaps

    This is so bad and I think they should get their stuff together, I can't see why you have to pay $35 just to renew your domain, and they don't make any easy for anyone who what to transfer the domain, I think some one as to step up in this industry as there are a lot of registerfly practise


    I think the different between register.com and Registerfly.com

    is word fly and the later their fee were reasonable if you can get a service you pay for anyway

    They likely think it maximises profits, it may be better to have high margin and a falling customer base than low margins and stagnant or growing customer base. Think of this business model as similar to the way domainers buy old link names a declining business but still potentially good money.

    But they shouldn't make the transfer of the domain from them harder as they do now

    I've moved numerous names from Register to Moniker without any problem.

    Yeah, you have to call them and get the "Why are you moving your names?" spiel, but they hand over the auth codes with no other issue.

    Register.com has been around since the beginning, and to compare them to Registerfly is an insult.

    http://www.networksolutions.com/doma...cing-chart.jsp

    *ALL* gTLDs: $34.99 for 1 year renewal / registration

    But only $9.99 if you renew for 100 years

    Both of these registrars have had these prices for as long as I can recall, this price is not uncommon.

    1112, have you even tried looking inside your register.com control
    panel for anything that might give you the auth code? I've known
    one person who thought he had to call netsol until he looked hard
    enough inside his account manager and sent it to himself.

    If you've honestly exhausted every effort trying to resolve all and
    any problems you've got, then you can call register.com and ask
    why they supposedly make it so hard to transfer.

    I tried everything, will be nice if anyone has sucess with that to tell us know,

    But when I ask them they claim it because of security, Ow right

    Honestly I am tired of this company I am removing my domain as quick as i can , I don't wanna deal with them .

    When you do/if ' you get your Auth Code then the confirmation email arrives to confirm the transfer away from Register.com you will need to scroll the email all the to the left to find the confirm transfer code if you miss this the transfer will be void/fail .. this may depend on your screen resolution ...

    Oh' and they will then offer you in the same email a discounted renewal fee if you cancel the transfer request .. i think that discount renewal fee not to transfer away is $19.90

    Networksolutions and many other registrar services will also offer you a cheaper renewal fee not to transfer away.

    Many big business corps have their names registered with Register.com and Networksolutions they dont care what the cost is as it is just a minimal expense and they have the security of old long established registrars ...

    I just transferred 2 out of register and you do have to call for the auth code. But the wait time was a couple of minutes and the process took about 3 minutes (they have to send the admin an email while you are on the phone). Didn't seem like a hassle to me.
    Never start vast projects with half-vast ideas.

    will be an hassle if you have to call from Afghanistan or Congo,
    that three minutes will cost you a lot for internetional phone charge and if the line will be able to connect for that long before get cut off and try again and again to get good connection and at the end you will spend the money enough to feed you for a month or renew more than 25 domain at godaddy

    So if you think calling from US where the call is free that can be no hassle but if you are based in other places where you have to pay for international call then you will feel the hassle

    Those guys should get their act together and make easy for people to transfer their domain

    Yes, I can understand that. It was a toll free number though; not sure if you get toll free internationally.

    No you don't get toll free internationally, you have to pay for full international call fee
