I always piss myself laughing when I see "setup fee" associated with "domain
registration" (apart from dotIE's that is, because they're a pain in the ass).
It's like Vservers used to charge me $20 to add a domain name to the server, and
$10 for a canonical. That was just to add them to the nameserver, nothing to do
with domain registration. Now how long does it take? A minute?
Even domain registration is automated these days - I can have a dotCOM
registered and set up on my server for twenty quid in five minutes using
"traditional methods". Using Webmin for the DNS work, I can cut it to one or
two. And when I set up my own system, It'll just be a case of filling in a
domain name and choosing an IP from a drop-down box - just a few seconds work.
Greedy bastards the lot of 'em, that's all I can say. And the Irish "providers"?
They should all be wearing masks... :)
