Their pricing is not in line with other ccTLD's around the world.Why the big increase, load shedding doesn't affect it, fuel price doesn't affect it? Maybe preparing for that xmas bonus...
Yeah its way cheaper...Their pricing is not in line with other ccTLD's around the world.
They lowered the pricing initially to entice people to move their domains from legacy onto EPP.
Now they will slowly increase their price each year until it's in line with the rest of the worlds ccTLD's.
Legacy:A wholesale fee is the annual per domain name fee that the ZACR charges its accredited
registrars for creates and renews. The current EPP wholesale fee for Co.za, Net.za, Org.za
and Web.za is R35 and is VAT exclusive. The ZACR has requested ZADNA to approve a new
EPP wholesale fee (as shown in Table 1 below) that is intended to apply over a 5 year period
starting from 2015. The proposed new fee is exclusive of VAT.
Co.za legacy fees are the fees that resellers or registrants pay to the ZACR for creating and
renewing Co.za registrations using the old legacy system. The current Co.za legacy fee is R65.78
and is VAT exclusive. The proposed adjustment should have the legacy fee being adjusted on
annual basis over a 5 year period as shown in Table 2, and is meant to encourage further
migration of Co.za registrations from the legacy system to the EPP registry system.
Uniforum used to be a non-profit organisation, I am not sure since they changed to ZACR.I am curious to know what they are doing with all the millions they are getting paid for this?
Sounds like a good place to be to basically do admin work, which could even be mostly automated at this point.
Who is then receiving all the money that you pay for the registration and renewals?Uniforum used to be a non-profit organisation, I am not sure since they changed to ZACR.
They obviously spend some of it on operational costs like salaries and equipment to run the registry.Who is then receiving all the money that you pay for the registration and renewals?
