    Default Over 100 Million .com domains

    In the last twenty four hours, the DotCOM went over 100 million active domain names. This morning's domain count was 100,045,666 domains. The funny thing is that it went completely unnoticed by the Irish "technology" journalists. Apparently they are still waiting by their new telex machines for press release.

    Well for the domain count, it means that the domain name and its nameservers are in the zone file (the list of domains, their nameservers, and the IP addresses of nameservers). Not all of these domains actually work and there are domains that are registered and are not in the zonefile (they are being hidden or are pending deletion). And for websites, the picture is even more blurred.

    Because paying a few thousand Euro each year in renewal fees can get a bit much. It is not a question of building up a collection of any domains, it is building a collection of the right ones.

    How much does it cost to register a .com domain name and what annual fees apply?

    Are other domains the same price?

    Anything from about 6.50 Euros upwards. The same fee would have to paid each year.

    Some of the net/org/biz/info are around the same price but the .ie can be more expensive as can .uk, .de and others. With .ie, you have to be able to prove some kind of entitlement to the domain (business/company name, trademark, personal name etc).

    Not a dot com but, $185,000 for a 10 year lease on a new gTLD plus an annual maintenance fee of $4-5K.

    Most of them will fail to gain market share. A few will be great successes and some might putter along around the 200K domains level.

    Somehow, I think a .ie or a .uk, .eu or .us would be better.

    But not appropriate, given our evenhandedly global orientation.
