    The long arm of GoDaddy cs. intervened in the low prices of West.xyz : the transfer of .online is raised from $ 2.42 to $ 30 ! This is why West.xyz had to raise their prices :

    So don't blame West.xyz :notworthy:

    So the registry forces West to raise their 'doorprice' to enter the bar, just because too many people are walking away from other bars to the West-bar? That sounds an awful lot like mafia, or at least cartel forming.

    .online would be so much more successful if it were managed by a better registry. Radix has attempted very little (if any) serious promotion. Pricing is not competitive, leading to a low retention rate. They haven't responded to any of the several emails I sent this year.

    I love .online, but its potential is being stymied by an incompetent registry. Radix blows!

    I actually think they are of the better registries. There is a sense of stability & sound planning with these guys. My opinion though.

    Same here but Radix seems determined to keep the price around $20-35. And for what? They aren't doing a damn thing to earn such a premium. At that price, very, very few .online's will be renewed annually (for me personally it could be as low as 1%) and we're going to see a constant cycle of domains being registered, dropped, registered, dropped. Values (which are already low) will remain stagnant due to an overabundance of good domains constantly dropping and being re-registered for a dollar.

    Seems to be an unpopular opinion here, but imho Radix is killing .online's potential with their tight control on pricing. It just doesn't make any sense for most investors to renew a portfolio of .online's at that rate: every .online renewal is equivalent to around THREE .com renewals!! Dot com is WAY easier to sell, and they sell for FAR higher prices.... so what on earth would be the sense in maintaining a large portfolio of .online??

    Everyone here probably knows that I've been an ardent supporter of .online for the past year, but if nothing changes soon, I'm out.

    I just chat with West.xyz support, she said that West.xyz will have this promo, too. But not for transfer, only registration and renewal.

    Also, Dreamhost ended their promo for renew and transfer of .online, back to normal price now. ($29.95)

    Tried to transfer .online to West.xyz today, but the transfer price is $30.00, not sure this is an error or they changed the price.
    Their price page still shows $2.42.

    A bad juggler will burn his hands. A good juggler however, wont even notice the difference between a hot and a cold potato.

    Are there any available LLL.online domains ? It seems all the expired ones are being reserved by the registry.
