    Hi All

    If you are managing hundreds of domains, does it become cheaper to become a tag holder yourself? If so, at what point in terms of number of domain names?

    Can someone give me a quick overview of the charges that would be involved, including the domain renewal fee once you become a Tag holder (and member of Nominet I guess).

    Thanks

    If all the domains are yours then you should be able to renew them with a click of a button and for £5

    But if you have different customers then you really need a backend and a website like www.123-reg.co.uk

    Correct me if I'm wrong. But as a tag holder only renewal would be at the regular rate of £80+vat

    If your only interested in saving money then I would just stick with 123-reg. Even quite a few catchers transfer domains out.

    No, the £80 rate is what Nominet charge if a Registrant (not a TAG holder) renews their domain directly with them. TAG holder rate is £5.00 :D

    TAG holder rate is only £5 if you are also a Nominet member I think?

    Member rate is £5.00 + VAT. Non-member rate is £80.00 + VAT. The rate for renewing a domain name directly with Nominet is the same as the non-member, but with own tag, rate. It's the membership (or lack of) that determines the rate. Any entity can apply for a tag for free, whether or not they are a member of Nominet. DAC access is only available to members, presumably to stop people applying for hundreds of free tags. Taking things logically, the DAC is useful to all tag holders regardless of their membership status. However this is how it is. :)
