    Domain renewal price

    I've been billed $37.00 for a one year extension which is three times the amount I've paid previously. Is this a fair price?

    Probably not, unless the renewal includes a nice dinner out. What company is it?

    Wht top level domain is it? They can vary a lot in price dependent on that and some countries have put theirs up quite a bit lately.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    This sounds fishy.... is register.com the place you have your domain registered, or is this one of these paper ads that came in snail mail?

    If you have your domain at register.com (and pending Felgall's question about the tld), I would move it to a cheaper registrar. Some will give you a free year's renewal for moving a domain over.

    You still haven't told us what top level domain it is that your domain is in.

    Regiser.com do all the following top level domains and some of them can be expected to be a lot more expensive than others

    .com
    .net
    .org
    .tv
    .xxx
    .biz
    .mobi
    .info
    .us
    .co.uk
    .org.uk
    .ca
    .la
    .pw
    .cc
    .jp
    .de
    .co.nz
    .tw
    .eu
    .net.nz
    .ws
    .org.nz

    You can get .net domains for about $10 a year so since your current provider wants to charge more you should consider moving to a different domain registrar. You can still keep the hosting where it is.

    Mmm, that is a bit steep for a TLD. I would only pay that if it was for a 2 year registration.

    Those prices are ridiculous if it's just for the domain itself. There are other things that can add up, but it doesn't seem like you did based on the site. You don't even have whois privacy.

    Anyway, check out Namecheap. I'd recommend transferring your domain there.

    For a little more than $37 (about $45), you can even get a year's worth of hosting from stablehost rather than the free one you're using right now.

    Domain renewal price is depend on the validity and domain extension such as .gov and .org and .net are costly domain.
    .org for first year = $14.99
    .net for first year = $14.99
    .co for first year = $9.99
