more fees, please

It's funny how you can pay $10 to get a really decent car wash, or $2 to get a Vietnamese sandwich, both of which involve some physical labor and care. And then you can pay $99.95 to your web domain registration company to do, basically, nothing. put dibs on some web address that is already your name or a word you made up....give me a break.

Um ... how often are you paying $100, and for what exactly?

i just paid network solutions $100 to renew a domain name for the next i think 5 years...I know I could pay less, and that NS sucks, but I was too lazy to transfer it. as with most web transactions I let them run over me for the sake of not having to think about it too much.
