Does your Hosted Registrar Provider Charge you more to comply with ICANN requirements?

We’ve received word that some technology providers for hosted registrar systems are charging their clients (who are often on long term contracts) up to $7,000 in order to comply with ICANN requirements, such as the Registrar Data Escrow (RDE) .

While we feel that all mandated services should be part of a standard solution, there may be a cheaper work-around available to at least smaller size registrars trying to avoid those additional charges: They may pull the information through the API of their solution provider and then deposit the information directly with Iron Mountain. Another option of course would be to check your contract and see if the term commitment you made does still apply when new charges are added to the offering.
