Domain mastered

You may remember this from last month:

When I registered this domain back around the turn of the century, I went to Network Solutions, because, well, who else was there? At the time, I was delighted to see that they’d cut the annual fee from $100 or so to a mere $35.

Eleven years later, I’m up for renewal, they have scores of competitors, and the fee has been slashed from $35 to … um … $34.99. Yes, they’d give me a third off for a five-year term, but that’s still twice what I’d be paying elsewhere.

It took two tries — the first set of confirming emails got spam-trapped into oblivion — but I’ve now gotten the domain moved. Ten bucks a year.
