Why Domain Prices Different?

Let's clear this up step by step. To understand why domain registration prices have really big difference we need to know whom we pay for and what we pay for. In reality you do not buy "domain name" you pay for the services that are associated with making this name accessible (findable) on Internet. The biggest portion of registration price get to "Registry" a company that owns the rights for the registering domain extension. Such Registry might control and manage one or multiple zones and this Registry sets the main price. Small portion from each domain registration and renewal (from $1 to $2 per year) gets ICCAN "The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers". And small percent from domain domain name registration and renewal price gets registrars. Registrars usually provide domain and hosting services together.

RSS stands for Rich Site Summary, but often called Really Simple Syndication allows web users to subscribe and extract information on specific topic from specific web sites (which support RSS protocol). In RSS feeds information become available for subscribers within a very short time (or even pushed on there devises). Most of news and media web sites still using RSS, even this technology miss a lot to make it more useful. It is a challenge to find good feed, the amount of RRS readers (applications that manage subscriptions and shows feeds) dropped. Firefox removed its RSS button (2011), Apple dropped RSS out of OS X in Mountain Lion 2012, Twitter and Google stopped supporting RSS in 2013. But RSS protocol will be in use for a while even if not for content aggregation, this technology has other use in information worldwide exchange.

We are HSTS Preloaded

HSTS Preloading is a way for web hosts to enforce the use of SSL/TLS on their site by putting directly on browser information that specific web site uses HTTPS protocol only. This global list is maintained by Google and is used by Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Google, Facebook, Gmail, Twitter and PayPal implement HSTS. These sites do not depend on the HSTS response headers to enforce security. Instead, the browsers are already aware that particular domain name requires the use of HTTPS protocol only and pushes HSTS before any connection or communication even takes place. Read in our blog "How to Enforce HTTPS with Strict Transport Security" and HSTS preload.
