New pricing structure draws ire of some customers.
Tucows (NASDAQ:TCX), owner of the dominant reseller domain name platforms Enom and OpenSRS, is introducing new pricing on both of its platforms. The pricing is not uniform across the brands.
The pricing structure looks somewhat like an airline mileage club, requiring a minimum annual spend and number of new transactions in order to get the best pricing.
For example, the top Platinum Plus plan on Enom requires an annual domain spend of $100,000 and 1,000 new registrations or inbound transfers. That plan offers $9.00 .com domains and $12.00 .biz, .info, .net and .org domains.
The baseline Enom account will now pay $13.50 for .com domain names and $17.00 for .biz, .info, .net and .org.
