Really High Charge for new domain (1 year 167$!)


I bought a few domains today on this platform and the total cost per domain was about 5-6$ worth of ETH each (1 year registration each).

However, there was one that I tried to register where the fee was over $167 worth of ETH. I was really surprised and of course I did not purchase the domain. I did almost click the button though, thank god I caught it.

Why did that happen? There was no previous registrant and it appeared to be the same as any other domain. Would appreciate some explanation.

Thank you.

Hi, short names are more expensive. It’s either around $500/y for 3 chars or around $150 for 4 chars
