Here, in England, the total cost of a domain includes several things :-

The initial cost, plus :-

      WhoIs cost + ICANN charge + VAT or Bank charges (for currency conversion).

Outside the UK it will be different - but these tables will still be very relevant.

Use a “Total Cost” table to compare costs.

The tables here, show how the total figure is found.

To see a Simple cost comparison table >- Totals (£)  >> Total Costs

Where I have made currency conversions ($ to £), I have used today’s conversion rates, these are shown on Green

Back  <<  Previous page.

Some registrars (Domain name Sellers) state clearly their charges, up-front.

Some - I had to really dig into their small print to find out their full cost.

Some showed me later, during the check-out process - and some none of those.

   So I, phoned up :- some did not give a clear answer, or

       they suggested something was zero, where I had already found it is charged.

Where charges were NOT revealed (hidden) - an optimum cost was added, shown in Red
