    I want to register a new domain name. My existing site is a one,
    but I now need to register a .info one. I did a Google search, and it
    came up with various sites to register. I started off in GoDaddy, but
    the price changed somewhere between my first entry and the time to pay,
    and there's no obvious price for subsequent renewals... this is a little
    scary! lol

    Is there an official place to register, that isn't a commerical site?

  4. No there isn't just one official place to register. The .info TLD is
    handled by Afilias, which only accepts domain registrations through an
    authorized registrar:

    Personally, I've never had a problem using GoDaddy, and the renewal
    price is the same as the registration page, as listed on their website.

    Currently, the price for .info at GoDaddy runs at $5.95 + the ICANN fee
    of $.25, making a total of $6.20 per year (USD).

    Thanks... that's what I went with, in the end. There was something
    wrong with my newsreader - it didn't pick up any messages, including my
    own post to this thread, so I finally used GoDaddy. I didn't see where
    it said what future rates would be (renewal) so I was a bit nervous
    about being held hostage in future years, so what you've said here
    reassures me.

  6. No problem at all. In fact, I've been a customer with GoDaddy for about
    5 years now, and I currently have 99 domains in my account with them
    (not 100, as I previously thought). The only two times I can recall
    having the need to contact customer support, was when I lost my account
    ID and password, and when I needed to find out how to set glue records
    for DNS (ie. registering my DNS servers). Even then, I got a response
    within 24 hours.
