    Premium domain names - yearly fee

    Quick question. Registering so-called premium domain names in which registrars are charging $1,000, $2,000 or more, is that just a once-off fee for the first year. For the 2nd year does renewal revert to base market rates for the TLD.

    Each seller will probably vary, but for most you are buying the domain name for that price. After you have bought it, you own it and can do what you want with it, move it to another host, sell it on etc.

    I've been using Name.com lately, so the premium domains that they provide, they actually own as opposed to regular never before registered type domain names.

    What you are purchasing at a premium is the name rights, after the purchase you will own the domain and therefore only pay standard TLD rates after.

    As rule that is the price for the domain names which were registered and now they are on the sale. In this case you pay onece huge and then every year depending on the registrar and domain name extension

    I think once you bought it you can do whatever you want. you can always transfer the domain if someone is charging more.

    For a new domain, there is no such thing as a "premium domain name".

    If the domain has never been registered before it will cost you $5.95 at netfirms, or about $10 at godaddy. With prices in between at places like name.com or namecheap.com

    If you are buying it from the current owner the price is whatever they will accept.

    Once it's yours, the renewal is going to run you $7-10 depending on where you register it.

    There is such a thing as a premium domain name, it is a domain you buy through an auctioning site or another kind of second hand purchase where you pay an excess to own the rights to it. Hence why it is classed as a premium. Any domain which you pay over the standard new registration rate would qualify as this.
