Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Most of the sites don't even mention any price whatsoever! Of course, it doesn't matter for people working for big companies, as they won't be paying for the costs of the domain names themselves, but I need to know how much it'll cost before I pre-register a domain name. I think it's ridiculous these sites don't mention any price - all they want to do is trap people into pre-registering no doubt and then charge them huge sums for their domains.
Surely the .eu domain is not going to be as expensive as £100+? Will there be cheaper registrars coming on board?
Perhaps you might ask the authority for an explanation and report back on the official reasons?

I don't see notification of the start of the sunrise period on the EURid site though.
Found this document on Google [eurid.eu...] which tells that the yearly registration/renewal fee is expected to be 10 Euros (provisional) for their accredited registrars, but with additioonal fees up to 85 Euros for sunrise applications.
(You have to download the whole PDF to look at page 44, Google crashes on the "view as html" link).
