Heard the One About .BERLIN Domains for €30? Not True!

One of the longest established candidates for a new generic Top Level Domain (gTLD), dotBERLIN, have denied reports that .BERLIN domain names will cost €30 each, assuming the gTLD is approved in ICANN’s gTLD process.

In an interview with DomainesInfo dotBERLIN CEO Dirk Krischenowski, Krischenowski outlines the support from the Berlin community. He says they have “over 100 partners representing individuals and also tens of thousands of small, medium and large enterprises from nearly every sector in Berlin: Internet, tourism, publishers, facility management.”

On the report that each domain name will cost €30, Krischenowski says this is untrue. While the price has not been determined, he says it will “be as inexpensive as possible”, but will not compete with .DE domains, probably with the €10 to €20 range.
