The price of a domain can be configured in many different ways and may return a different price depending on who is asking.
This article aims to clarify on what price-point will be used in which case.
Pricing can be configured in the following ways:
- GA price
- Premium price
- Pattern (regex) Based pricing
- Object Pricing (aka Grandfathering)
- Specific to a registrar
- Independent of a registrar
In the end, there can be only one final price for a domain, so how does the system get to that price?
Below is the order in which these prices take priority over each other. Highest priority on top:
- Object pricing specific to a registrar (grandfathering that will expire on transfer)
- Object pricing without specific registrar (grandfathering that will expire on delete)
- Premium Price
- Pattern (regex) based pricing
- GA price
Promotions and Launch phases
After the system determines the applicable price for a domain two more things need to be checked:
- Is there a promotion active that matches this operation for this specific registrar? If so then the promotion is applied.
- Is there an active launch phase? If so then the applicable fee is added to that price.
