There is something called registry. Eg: .com registry. They are actually costing you this amount. Their cut is $7.86 for .com domain. Verisign is a private company which is now the .com registry. Domain name registrar's cut is only $1.87 . Read the above answers.

@ AJ Henderson: I got it now. But ICANN is a non profitable organization. But verisign (.com) registry is not? How can they become the monopoly over .com domains. Who gave them that right? One more thing, (.) root server is doing the same thing as .com registry and their cut is ($0.18) and the Verisign's is $7.5. Are these registries doing something other than that to justify this cut?

What exactly they do other than directing the users who type mywebsite.com to the webhost having specefic ip address? But this is done by ICANN. What is the .com registry doing here to have this major revenue share?

@ Peteris And what is the 7 people who holds the keys for the ICANN database. I read that someone gained access to ICANN database he/she will control the internet!. How is that possible if ICANN does not do any thing for our domain name? http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/feb/28/seven-people-keys-worldwide-i‌​nternet-security-web
