 +====== eNom and BulkRegister.com ======
  
 +I had a bad experience with eNom and BulkRegister.com and this is my story.
 +
 +===== RegisterFly =====
 +
 +Way back when, I was a customer of the domain registration service //​RegisterFly//​. ​ They had great prices and a decent web interface. ​ Rumour has it that a spat between the owners caused a decline there and before long I started to have serious problems.  ​
 +
 +===== eNom =====
 +
 +Soon, the reseller, //eNom//, stepped in and took over the accounts. ​ They grandfathered //​RegisterFly//​ users into their system allowing us to buy domains at about $10.  The system worked well and things were good.
 +
 +About a year ago //eNom// raised prices on old //​RegisterFly//​ users. ​ It didn't go up a lot, just a couple dollars, but it was a significant percentage. ​ I thought their system was worth the difference, so I stuck around at the new price.
 +
 +===== BulkRegister.com =====
 +
 +Now, //eNom// has transferred my account to //​BulkRegister.com//​ and the price went up again, this time to $12.95. ​ Again, this is a minor increase (although about 30% higher than original). ​ Still, I thought I //might// stick around again. Apparently, I like punishment. Today, however, I got an unexpected charge of $99 just for the privileged of being a customer. ​ That was enough, I called them.
 +
 +They told me that the $99 membership fee was used to keep my price down to the $12.95 amount. ​ Their regular rate is closer to $20.
 +
 +No thanks. ​ I'm taking my ball and going home.
