    Oh no, not again.

    .INFO domain registrar just announced new $1.99/year promotion and we all know
    that means another 10,000 directories are coming to spam Internet with vengeance.

    On the bright side .MOBI domains available for only $2.99/year and .TV now only $12/year.

    The main secret is: that is a price for the first year only. Next ear renewal price will be much higher.
    However I do not think that will increase spam.

    Exactly. Places that discount domains down to $1 even are tricking you by giving you a cheap price the first year but once renewal comes, it will cost $12.

    I'd rather keep my current set up of $6.95 for a .com and save in the long run.

    I never thought that they are going to overprice it after a year. If this is a scam, then its better to stay with my current domain price.

    I also agree you. This is only a one year offer. After one year the revise price will be more than previous year.

    To be honest I hardly find .info sites on my Google searches in the UK, but when I do I'm never tempted to click it. Unless it's a .co.uk, .com, .org, or the xtension of a specific country, I'm not interested! But i'm old school!

    What's the status of .mobi domains because I would have thought that a website such as m.example.com is sufficient?

    djraks, m.example.com *is* sufficient actually, it's just the usual "trying to make a buck" thing that happens everywhere else.

    Directories?
    You mean to say that people make web directories if the domain prices gets low ?
