Cyprus web studios: domain purchase for 13 EUR, are you serious?

Going through some of the web studios on the island, I was amazed on skyscraping prices on domain registrations. .com/.net/.org TLD’s for over 13 EUR. I just got couple of questions to those who actually do the reselling of these services:

  1. Under which contact name the domains will be registered? What about VAT?
  2. Over 5 EUR overprice, do you really think that customers won’t find which service you use to register the domains cheaper than your offer?
  3. What’s included in this 5 EUR?

Regarding the prices, I’m going to leave this one here for sake of price comparison (dumping?!):

Fozzy domain registration prices

  1. 13 EUR is nothing … I’ve personally done way way WAY more expensive domain registrations. We are talking new .com with the non-exact company name, long, which will be completely useless to anyone else.

    Don’t forget that you are a technical guy who knows what a domain is, what it can be used for, where to buy one, how to host one, how to maintain one, etc. You are a minority. 🙂

    1. @Leonid,
      Fully agree with you, I had to mention what domain names I was talking about. No doubt, that domains like servers.com/finances.com/ddos.com are enormously expensive.
      My point was, that doing reselling of certain domain registrars (ResellerClub, GoDaddy, Enom, you name it) for 13 EUR for .com/.net/.org TLD’s it’s almost 50% overpriced. I think it’s not competitive. For a webstudio selling 3-4 domains per month, it might be the subject of income.
      I kind of got used to the concept of economies of scale – selling 100+ domains per month with less oversell, gives you good/stable income on long-term basis.
