.mx Domains = Highway Robbery


I was on Go Daddy today and saw that they were accepting registrations for .mx (Mexico) domains. A cool domain name popped into my head: tex.mx (Tex-Mex), a style of food that I think is absolutely fantastic. I thought I’d register it for fun, in case somewhere down the road a Tex-Mex restaurant chain wanted it and I could retire with my family to a small island somewhere. A regular .com domain is $11.99 CAD for me to register. A .mx domain? “Just” $661.80 per year. What a bargain! I don’t get this – I thought everything was supposed to be cheaper in Mexico. 😉
