Thanks for the long explanation however it makes zero sense in that how can names which at the time of registration (regardless of the date) were not said to be premium and then the regular prices renew today at anything other than whatever the current regular renewal cost is? If this practice is okay why is it I have never seen any other registry doing it? I had non-premium names in dozens of tlds over the years and in 100% of the cases I could renew at whatever the latest renewal cost is? Why have the other registry's or registrars not done this before? Is it something they can start doing? P.S. When you say help get a discount do you mean going from say $80 to $60 or $80 to $40 or ...? What are the requirements to qualify and the maximum percentage discount which is possible?
