When checking pricing at any domain shop, one of the most difficult things to find is the renewal figures.
Entry pricing is usually lower, it's the industry benchmark for attracting new sales. But what about that next year and year after? Are there any deals out there that look too good to be true? Not really; the truth is all registries pay the same cost for a domain and for that reason all registries need to make some kind of money back at some point. For most registries that is year two or three of your time spent as a customer there.
