    Ha! You think that’s bad – Melbourne IT charge $69.30 for a .com address p/a.

    This does come with a “One Page Website …free for the first registration period of your domain name”. I don’t know how Melbourne IT can sleep at night thinking they can get away with that, although I guess they don’t try and dupe their customers with dodgy letters.

    While you and I may know that this is just a try-on, when the letter arrives at a company’s account department it looks legit enough that they will most likely pay it without question.

    Actually the sad thing is that is probably only a little over what I pay to renew a domain. I pay UK£20 for two years of renewal, which XE.com assures me is about AUD$48. Oh well. I don’t think it’s a bad price to pay, it’s only 2p a day. 🙂
