A couple of months ago, I needed something from Target. I can’t remember what it was, but I needed it more quickly than when I would get it if I bought it online. I went to the Target store and noticed the price in-store was higher than the online price. Although ordering online may be more convenient than going to a store, actually getting the product right away is more convenient and there are additional costs associated with keeping the inventory in the store.
This got me thinking about domain name pricing, and I think some people might have a similar philosophy when it comes to domain names.
