Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could help you..
There seemed to be a lot of conflicting information here about prefunding of accounts so I called Moniker..
I called to inquire and when I asked was transfered to the person who handled Namepros stuff..
I was informed that there was no prefunding requirement. He asked for my email address to send me an email to use for sending him my account information after I registered..
After waiting a couple days I called back. He said my emails bounced so I asked for his email. I sent account information to him and received a reply right back informing me that NP pricing had been setup on my account..
Since 500 bucks is a bit of a streatch right now I prefunded a couple hundred and have reg'd a few and beginning to transfer as names are coming up for renewal. I like prefunding when funds are available cause I hate a bunch of small charges on the card plus it is less hassle for a company offering a good deal. Love not having to deal with the GD sloooooooooooooooow iPage site and inbox full of emails for each reg. I will still use GD for the really cheap specials but... I will say that GD support has been A+++ for me but....
Just a couple thoughts. I am an old coot & like using the phone when I can - often gets a faster response. A second contact can't hurt as it indicates you are serious...
My experience with Moniker is a little different than most I believe, but I initially contacted Moniker and asked them for the NP pricing and they set my account for the $6.95 pricing. The next day I was contacted by them, and they told me I either had to prefund my account with $500, make a bulk transfer of my portfolio to Moniker, or have my pricing adjusted to $7.25/domain. I didn't have the cash available at the time to prefund $500 or pay for all the transfer fees, so I elected for the $7.25/domain option. Not a bad deal at all if you ask me..
I just signed up. The choices I got were send them a check or wire transfer for any amount, prefund with a credit card for $500, or they could adjust the price to $7.25. I think that is a reasonable offer and I prefunded the account for $500 with a credit card. Don, the account rep making the offer, responded to my email request on Superbowl Sunday on his day off!.
A different Tom..
I contacted moniker over two weeks ago about getting a NP discount and have yet to hear from them. So I have been sticking with GD for the time being although I would really like to get setup with moniker...
I emailed dlyons at moniker.com and got a response within minutes..
I'll try and email them again and see what happens...
