I'm going to type this and copy it to a notebook document to paste repeatedly every day.......
1.) Nominum is in a different country than godaddy and US companies are subject to feelsthat don't exist in outher countriies.
2.) BUT those countries often charge more altogether in taxes
3.) A domain bought through nominet is $80. Not $10 as it is at godaddy. Sure it comes with freebies but it cosrs more. Sure you can transfer a domain over for year 1. But in year 2 you're gonna pay the full $80 fwhile at godaddy you can get the domain for $19 and security for $7.99. So $18.99 vs $80 and people are holding nominet up as if it's a superior value? Sure yuo can transfer your domain but even if you buy a 5 year domain, your transfer to nominet is only good for a year. Then you'll spend $80 right at the end of year 1 when you would have spent $40 at godaddy. And each year after it's $80 vs $20.
Well that's just swell. I guess all that means that GoDaddy are also exempt from GDPR?
Also - is it a revelation that a customer who placed an order with a quite cost ISP, who's purchase decision was partly based on cost, is annoyed about having to pay extra for privacy?
