I've never addressed this, or asked the question. It seems ridiculous, but having been a member of Nominet for nearly two years now, I have to ask the question. Why do Nominet charge £80 per domain to those who aren't members? That seems like extortion to me. It seems like, "Either pay us £600 and £100 per annum. or we will charge you £80 per domain + VAT". Surely, it would make more sense, for them to charge the registration fee (currently £3.90 exc. VAT) to registrars and accredited registrars and members. Maybe not self-managed tag holders, because they're not really into volume registrations. I mean, where on planet Earth does Nominet get this £80 from? Some brief boardroom discussion? "How much should we charge the peasants who don't become a member of our little club?" ... "Uhmmmm... about £80? Yeah, £80 seems fair." Does it Nominet? Does it?
