    The odd thing is why is it more in euro's than in dollars...

    11.99 euros = 15.6613 us dollars

    There's nothing unusual about this, registrars always do this. A .com is usually much more expensive if you buy it from a UK based registrar vs a US based one. GoDaddy is registered in multiple locations around the world. They may be ripping the Europeans off or they may be paying more tax hence the price hike, I'm not sure but it's nothing new for domains to be more expensive for Europeans buying from companies based in Europe.

    Because since you are from the EU, the company has to add VAT to the item (which is around 20%) that's why it's so much higher.

    No one seems to be noticing that while the searched domain is more expensive in Europe, the add 3 matching domains option is much cheaper...

    Seems like they just throw random numbers around :/

    I see a greater threat than just the price difference.... I see an invasion

    <color><animal> seems to be a very popular naming theme. Might be a good idea to start buying <color><animal> .com's.
