    Hi everyone,

    We wanted to make this announcement on the DNtrade forums as we believe this community will benefit the most from it.

    As we all know, on Thursday auDA will officially lift the 6 month restriction on COR's, and in conjunction with that change, VentraIP is lowering it's COR price to the same as it's domain registration price, being $19.95.

    This means that the COR itself is effectively free, you simply need to pay to re-register the domain name for 2 years.

    We have made further improvements to our retail domain management interface recently, and within 3 months the entire system will be given a facelift to match the style of our brand new website.

    Also note, resellers using VentraIP Wholesale will also have access to free COR's.

    We are, and will continue to be, Australia's most competitive provider of domain names and related services, to both our loyal retail customers and our new wholesale customers. :)

    That's great.

    The obvious question is whether Drop is willing/able to price match this one (*cough* this afternoon, preferably :D *cough*).

    Thanks for the great feedback everyone, we really appreciate it.

    The thing for us is that COR's have never been a revenue stream that we've counted, nor is it something that we ever expected to make a cent from. Being the 'new kid on the block' so to speak is giving us an advantage as we've built our revenue base on hosting and other services, while domains (to us) serve as a tasting plate to get people to take notice of us.

    The incumbents don't have that luxury or flexibility, and just like we're selling .au domains at near cost price (in fact, our .org.au, .asn.au and .id.au ARE cost price), we will continue to innovate the industry by backing our good gestures with top notch customer service.
