$10 -- You can't run a website on AWS at this price. The minimal server they offer is a "Micro" instance at $0.02 per hour which is $14.40 per month. Even at slightly over budget you wouldn't want to use a micro instance for a website because the machine is severely limited. It is meant for testing only. As the CPU quota is used up, it may become ...

Why aren't gTLD domains sold in a unified price? Why should they? We live in a world where economy is bound by offers and demands, isn't it? So sellers are free to set their prices, and buyers are free to pay that price or not. And your question could be for all TLDs, not just gTLDs. Domains were free, back in the days, before the world wide web become ...

I have been a domain reseller for many years and I have yet to hear of a registrar charging a renewal price based on the actual domain name. I suspect it would be a spectacular marketing failure. I am not sure what makes you think any business does that. Firstly it would likely be too hard to manage all the domains and different prices and secondly, if a ...

There is no way at this point to do that with Linode. Having used them a while back as a provider I believe they sent emails at the time to alert when usage approached 100% of the plan allowance so you could make the appropriate changes to reduce your costings but there is no way in advance to prevent the usage from going over without actually monitoring it.

In short: no one knows and no one can predict anything about this. Like in some other areas, past behaviors will not give you indications of what will happen in the future. Any kind of sugar coating on this is just pure personal ramblings. The facts are that: the gTLD registries are under contracts with ICANN, with some variations, for example VeriSign ...

You could use VNstat to send you hourly reports via a cron, and then manually shut down your http server via a shell on your mobile device.

Each registry is free to sell its domain the way it wishes, and some do premiums, some do not. Although it is a very broad subject, it seems to me it is quite covered in passages containing the word premium here: How to ensure I always buy an informative domain in the lowest price possible? or Should renewal price of gTLD will always be identical to the ...

How to ensure I always buy an informative domain in the lowest price possible? You can't, specifically if you aim to guarantee future lowest prices. End of story. You seem to have multiple questions recently all around TLD pricing, always with some strange views or references to one specific TLD that does not have a place in most questions. The domain ...

I want to avoid users searching for a specific brand and then being presented with a link containing a campaignCode If you want to keep search engines from indexing any campaign code URLs besides the default one, then a canonical tag is the only solution that makes sense. Noindex tags could work, but a canonical tag is much better for SEO. As you suggested,...

It does happen that a registry increases the price of its domains but it is rare and when it happens the increase of price is very small. I wouldn't worry too much about this. Some new domain name extensions are cheaper than ".com" by the way. What can happen, and again this is ultra rare too, is buying a premium domain name and having a renewal price that ...

Verisign has contracts with ICANN to handle registry of top level domains, which includes pricing and fees. Assuming these contracts don't expire and things don't change, the fees will probably remain level with modest increases. Verisign essentially formed a monopoly of domain registrations for these top level extensions in the early days of the internet ...

Amazon's RDS pricing page has two sections. One for Single-AZ Deployment and one for Multi-AZ Deployment. Yes, Multi-AZ is about twice the price of Single-AZ. For example I see: db.t2.micro single - $0.017/hour db.t2.micro multi - $0.034/hour

There are two ways you could handle it - unfortunately both are not ideal solutions... You could remove the microformats markup from your pages - but this will affect the people both in the US and outside looking at your results You could create different versions of your website for different countries to be indexed in results for these countries. This ...

These are questions you should be asking the AWS billing department. Contact info is found here. EC2 Reserved Instances requires buying a time block on a certain instance, rather than going hour to hour with the on demand instances, with the selection of all upfront, partial upfront/partial monthly, or monthly billing. As you move towards monthly, the cost ...

Using geolocation should do the trick? https://developers.google.com/maps/articles/geolocation if client doesn't allow it , let them choose themselves, like they would choose a currency. Also, think about it if it is worth charging your clients. there are some discussions online about charing your clients for those fees or not.
