  • How does an ICANN Registrar make money?
    A domain registrar makes money through various revenue streams associated with domain registration services. Here are some ways they generate income: Domain Registration Fees: When individuals or businesses register a domain name through a registrar, they pay a registration fee. This fee covers the cost of acquiring and maintaining the domain name. Registrars set their own pricing structures, which can vary based on the top-level domain (TLD) and additional services offered. Renewal Fees: Domain names require periodic renewal to maintain ownership. Registrars charge renewal fees, typically on an annual basis. These fees contribute to the registrar's revenue stream and ensure the continued operation and management of the domain. Premium Domain Sales: Some registrars offer premium domain names with higher market value due to their relevance, length, or brandability. Premium domains are sold at a higher price point, allowing registrars to generate additional revenue from these sought-after assets. Value-Added Services: Registrars often offer additional services such as domain privacy protection, website hosting, email services, and SSL certificates. These value-added services come with their own pricing models and contribute to the registrar's overall revenue. Bulk Domain Sales: Registrars may offer discounted pricing for bulk domain registrations, catering to businesses or individuals seeking to register multiple domains at once. This encourages customer loyalty and increases revenue through larger volume sales. It's important to note that the specific revenue model can vary among registrars, and each registrar may have their own pricing structures and services.
  • What is the ICANN Application & Annual Fee
    There is a non-refundable application fee of US$3,500 for filing an ICANN Application, regardless of whether the application is approved, denied, or withdrawn. Once the initial review of the application materials is completed, ICANN will provide instructions on how to submit the payment. Upon approval, a yearly accreditation fee of US$4,000 is due, and it is required to be paid every year thereafter. This fee can be paid in 4 instalments across the year. A variable fee is charged on a quarterly basis, which starts either when you begin registering domain names or the first full quarter following your accreditation approval, depending on which comes first. This fee is a portion of ICANN's operating costs and is divided among all registrars, resulting in varying amounts from quarter to quarter. Additionally, there is a transaction-based gTLD fee charged on a quarterly basis. This fee is a fixed amount applied to each new registration, renewal, or transfer. Although the registrar may include this fee separately on the invoice to the registrant, it is ultimately paid by the registrar to ICANN. For more information about the fees associated with the ICANN accreditation process, please contact us. Our team is available to provide further details and assistance.
