Hi Exfyre,

There aren't periodical payments involved with domain name purchase except yearly renewal. When you register your domain you can renew it for years to follow right then and there. I think in GoDaddy you can register it for something like 9 years if you so choose.

Once you have a domain name, you will need to have it hosted somewhere, which generally incurs additional costs, although here at Synthasite they will host your domain for free... pretty cool! Hope this helps a bit.

Take care,

That's exactly right. Thank you, Emmy. We need to make this more clear! The 14.95 USD is for the domain name only. Domains are renewed on an annual basis. There are no hosting fees or other subscription fees that you need to pay.
