EURID lowers price of .eu registrartion, and godaddy raises .eu prices from $11.99 to $14.99 right before expected mass renewal dates in April.

Makes me think about moving my .eu domains.

Is this greed motivated. Or is godaddy spending to much time on the track.

Possibly US Dollar depreciation?

The standard price I see is about Euro 10.00 which, as of today, is USD 15.11.

I side with greed eurid reduced prices from 5 to 4 euro.

Godaddy raises prices from $11.99 to $14.99 4 weeks or so before they know hugh renewals will take place.

4 euro is 6.06942 USD (1.51) so theres a 8.93 markup? bit excessive? 150% but thats only my opinion. Somebody hit the wrong button on that backend pricing structure system....you know the price range one...lol adds 100`s of dollars to my renewal fee`s think my time will bew better spent looking for a new registrar....my 2 cents..

I don't object to my registrar making a profit since they do have on-going maintenance costs and give me a lot of freebies and keep me informed all the time as to the status of all my domains.

After my reseller discount I actually pay Euro 6.67 therefore I must be doing reasonably well then!

reseller account - is this the account you pay upto $229 a year for...emm not really a discount is it... been there...

Huskypup your not really in a position to comment since there not your registrar there your business partner. sorry for being blunt.

There tactic is just niggling me (greed)... and I will be moving my domains...and will pass the knowledge on shortly.

I agree with HuskyPup, this seems like a fair revaluation of their pricing based on the sliding dollar.

Hmmm...not sure what you mean? I deposit funds with my registrar, depending upon the time of year I'll deposit USD 500~1000.00, and I automatically get extra credits amounting to a 33% discount.

I don't pay a fee or anything else, it's a good deal and has worked for me for several years.

There tactic is just niggling me (greed)

Whilst I appreciate your angst do you not feel it is fair that they are allowed to make a profit? I do assume you work for money?

Likewise, apologies for being blunt:-)

Okay, I'm putting this thread "out to pasture" since it's looking more like a grievance thread and less like an educational thread or "thread of any community benefit" the longer it lingers.

Please take a moment to read or re-read the Charter as it helps explain my decision. Thanks.
