At last count I have around 120 .uk domains. At what point does it become cheaper to get my own TAG?
Assuming your paying £7.10ish, its costing you about £70 per year, and nom membership is £100+VAT per year.
On top of that £120 you have like £400+VAT joining fee to consider in there, so I'd say around 200 names for the yearly, and any growth over that chips away at the £480.
If you plan to stick around for a while, and are sure you'll be doing domains even after .uk, expect your growth to hit 200 in the next 12 months, and your fluid cash wise now, I'd consider it now.
Mostly because the requirements are likely to change with the registrar agreement so it could get costly or more difficult.
Lotta ifs there but that's my view
If you want to factor purely on a financial basis, you might want to factor in the problems many people face with some of the "popular/budget" domain sellers and include the wasted time into the equation.
Nominet membership is more than wholesale domain pricing!
What problems are they Alex?
Use the search - There's always threads complaining about the budget domain shops, people seem to waste hours sorting simple issues.
Thanks Alex, I understand. I sometimes can't see the wood for the trees.
Separate names with a comma.
