    I see $1 difference per domain from best priced domain registrars but that saving is nothing compare to huge membership fee. Let me know, if its free for namepros guys

    COM price is $8.03 once you add in ICANN fee

    Then add the Membership Fees
    Lite - $10/5 domains => + $2 per domain - Actual Cost $10.03
    Basic - $30/19 domains => +$1.58 per domain - Actual Cost $9.61
    Plus - $50/49 domains => +$1.02 per domain - Actual Cost $9.05
    Unlimited - $100/unlimited - To break even, use Epik $8.49 as the standard which at $0.46 per domain would make the Break Even point 217 domains

    Keep in mind you can get $8.03 at NameBright IF you pre-fund with Wire Transfer or Postal Mail a paper check and $8.10 at Epik with pre-fund by Wire, counter deposit or pay with bitcoin or masterbucks. That makes the YEARLY Break Even point infinity for NameBright and 1428 domains for Epik : grin :

    Some things that caught my eye:
    All domains are subject to a mandatory $0.18 ICANN fee per year, except for those with any of the following extensions: .ac, .bz, .cc, .co, .fm, .in, .io, .me, .nl, .pw, .sh, .st, .tv, .ws

    From TOS - https://www.domaincostclub.com/files/docs/DCC - Terms of Service.pdf
    Registrant agrees that transfer of a domain name away from DCC to another registration service provider may be subject to an administrative transfer fee determined in the sole discretion of DCC.

    The parent company is GDI - which is the WS guys. Back in the GDI days many MLMers bugged me about it so that is a personal annoyance factor.
    Registrar Global Domains International, Inc. DBA DomainCostClub.com Registrar IANA ID 1463

    Personally, to use a registrar for hundreds of domains, would have to see the control panel and how they handle bulk functions, there is little if any info or screenshots anywhere. OK was able to sign up WITHOUT purchasing anything, when it got to that screen, just went to My Account instead. It looks like a tweaked WHMCS. It appears to have bulk functions including exporting domain list and bulk auth codes.

    We'll see if they hound my email to upgrade, although to their credit, they do have email opt-outs in the cp. Strangely, there was no welcome email even : puzzled :

    I find out after calculation it is useful. But my worry is how trusted this service is for long term relationship. Domain transfer, push etc.

    Not worth the bother imo. Fees to use it at cost, then more fees to move domains. No thanks.

    That is a serious negative imo and something I would never agree to.

    I don't think this is officially from Namepros but more likely the "code" created with that name.
    @Eric Lyon Can you confirm if this is officially endorsed by NP?

    If that's true that's pretty shady.

    Was kind of interested in trying them out but the possible transfer-out fee was an instant deal breaker for me.

    I don't do business with any registrar that tries to charge fees on what's free everywhere else or hold my names hostage.

    I think this is a kind of tracking, they want to know the traffic source or where the customers came from.

    No, this is affiliate/referral - https://www.domaincostclub.com/referrals.dhtml
    upload_2018-4-16_10-38-43.png

    This is shady af and the lack of disclosure makes it worse.

    Edit: When you hover over the top-right black box "referred by DCC Namepros", it states that Namepros is a charter member which typically means that user with this referral code is a "founding member". Gets shadier

    I had that happen to me involving a UK based registrar in the past. Where they demanded a service charge transfer fee which extra cost they seemed to base on domain value. Had little choice but to pay the hostage money or else the transfers would fail. In the future I let all my other names at the firm expire rather than again deal with hostage money or high renewal cost.
