Why price is in BTC, not NMC? And why so expensive ? 2BTC is 35 USD
If you go to the payment tab, you can see a radio button to select the payment method. There is currently one choice : bitcoin. But namecoin is planned to. I'm just... a bit busy :p (that can't be done in 5mn...)"
Name price did go up to 40NMC with 1NMC = 0.10BTC. I let you make the math. Here is the current raw price : http://dot-bit.org/tools/domainCost.php (0.45BTC)
But, this price include also services, and of course you pay for that too :
- no need to do exchange BTC => NMC
- no need to do command line operations
- a web panel (if you select the right option) do customize more things or a simple redirection
- automatic renewal for 1 year at least
If you prefer paying less, just do it yourself, i've documented the steps :
I just found bitcoins 2 days ago, and just found namecoins a few hours ago. Now I am totaly for namecoins. I love the idea that is behind it! I was disappointed though to see that the domain registration didn't accept namecoins almost made me not want to bother with it because it didn't make much sense and several alarms went off to be cautious if namecoins registration doesn't even take namecoins. I finally found this topic and it put my mind to ease.
