    No. 1 .NA

    It is Namibian ccTLD and all people could register a .NA name. The Republic of Namibia, located in the southwestern Africa, was independent in 1990. Namibia is rich in mineral resources and well-known for its diamond. Fisheries resources are also very rich and it is one of the world's ten largest fish countries.

    The cheapest registrar for registering a .NA domain is OnlyDomains, about $2528 per year. The most expensive one has exceeded $ 4000 a year.

    In fact, .NA is really a very good ccTLD. However, it is such a high price for most of the people.

    For ordinary people, even when they get the best domain name such as chi.na, they also cannot afford it.


    No.2 .PR

    .PR is Puerto Rico ccTLD. Puerto Rico was originally a colony of the United States. Residents in this island can participate in the U.S. presidential primaries, but they do not have the right to elect the president of the United States. The cheapest registrar for registering a .PR domain is OnlyDomains and its registration fee is $1050 per year. The most expensive one is EuroDNS and its annual registration fee is €1380.

    No. 4 .CU

    It is Cuban ccTLD. Cuban is well-known for sugar and Cigar. The cheapest fee for registering a .CU domain is $665 in OnlyDomains and the highest fee is $ 1048.95 in DomainsRus.

    Thanks @Cynthia. Good to know.

    I'm from Trinidad and Tobago, and the fees are expensive. However, I believe that nic.tt list the fees differently from what you've quoted. For non TT citizens, it's 600 US for 3 years for name.tt, and 2000 US for 3 years for letter.tt (ex a.tt). The fees are also cheaper for locals.

    Some Chinese people have apparently developed on dot-tt domains, eg 88.tt, 5.tt etc. And I see that most (maybe all) of the numeric dot-tt domains already registered are registered to entities in China. It'll be good to understand the reason for their interest in dot-tt.

    Country codes are quite strong in some countries and if your site was going well you may not be too fussed by the fees, these are for businesses, not domainers

    Isn't .CF free to register? It also seems that .NR, the ccTLD of Nauru, could have its place on this list. Prices seem to range from €500 to more than a €1.000.
