Fwd: Promotion for registration of .africa at 200 KES

Barrack, Mark and all other registrars and registries. Here’s some free marketing advise so you are not accused of a ‘Bait and Switch’ scam:-

When doing domain name promotions like any other promotion clear information is important.

So I’d say something like this:-

Promotion! Promotion! Promotion!
New .Africa domains for $2!
Annual Renewal fees apply

> The AFRICA renewal fee. I charge R299 for renewals, just over US$22. Its that price regardless of whether is was purchased as a Premium or a special sale price. Its also the price of a regularly purchased new domain. When we started charging for CO.ZA – the price was R200 and that was 20+ years ago – so the AFRICA price is not that out of scope. If you are buying directly from the Registry – the price is obviously less, but my markup is not that high. The XYZ domains were at one time being sold for under US$1 – but who honestly can expect that to be the ongoing (renewal) price. The current pricing is clearly advertised as being a Sale or special price – “Asante Promotion” (Thank you promotion). The practise is also quite common in the Domain Name marketing world. Has not .KE also done this at times?

>> The best thing for .Africa to do is to be transparent on the renewal fee. Can you imagine if I’m to make .africa my primary domain name because of this offer and the renewal is than 10 times the price of the promotion? Best to let folks know so they can make an informed decision.
