Centralized bulkregistering of international domains
Suggestion with whom register international domains in one interface?

We would like to register international domains, but have so far only found one offering this. The prices there are far higher (60$ for .us for example) than if we register directly with some "specialized" registry.

The posibility to have all 100 or so country domains managed centralized is nice, but not if we have to pay 5 times more for the domains.

Any hints how you handle this would be apreciated, as far it is alowed to post it here. If not please sticky me.

Register your generic tlds (.com, .net, .org, .info, .biz) at a discount registrar.

Register your cc tlds at one of the larger registrars, since they tend to be the only ones that offer the full array of cc tlds.

Since the price of cc tlds is controlled at the national level the prices tend to be a bit inflexible and expensive. It's as if the mentality is "We better price 'em high so not that many people register them."

Haven't quite figured that one out yet myself.

On the other hand there are small countries that have gone out of their way to sell domains for purposes unrelated to their national interests (outside the national treasury, that is). .TV comes to mind.

Sorry, but I think at least a 2-pronged approach is what's needed.

Thanks Webwork! any hint what "larger" registrar is having all cc tlds available? I've just found one until now, and this was extremely overpriced (compared to the already quite high cc tlds fees as you noted)
