WVNET can acquire and manage domain names. We obtain domain names and handle the setup and management in a DNS server, connecting your domain name with web, email and other services. Once it is in place, we can help you to keep your domain name renewed each year and make changes as needed
|Prices for domain names vary, but on average|
|.com, .org, .net, etc. domains||typically $20 or less|
Note: .gov and .edu domains require documentation to verify your eligibility.
For non .gov/.edu domain names we acquire, there is a $50 one-time surcharge. For .gov/.edu domain names, we charge our standard consulting rate for setup.
If we manage the domain for you, there is a $25 management fee plus domain name renewal cost for each subsequent year.
