Domain Whois Privacy Charges:
Coming down to the pricing of the domain name, their charges of $9.99/yr. is nothing special. It’s commonly seen across many websites. The Domain privacy by itself, costs about $8/yr. They call it ID protect. The total comes to about $21.95. This is a serious no-no. Checkout the total in the screenshot below.
User Interface (UI)
As far as the order and checkout goes, the website looks like a modern day website. The information presented in nicely arranged and makes sense. It is a breeze to access any required section of the website in just one or two clicks.
The homepage offers what every Domain Name Registrar should offer, the search box to search the domains. This means you can get going with searching right away. Even the Add to Cart system is appealing and sensible. Finally the Checkout process itself is very simple and the layout of the estimate helps in understanding of the costs very easily. All in all, a very good UI.

enom.com Review Conclusion
There are tons of positive things to talk about enom.com. But keeping the review strictly confined to Domain Name Registration and the costs associated with it, a total of $21.95/yr seems to be to too much just for domain name. Yes, I could skip getting the Domain Name Registration privacy but I won’t. I need it to keep my personal details safe from spammers. $8/yr. just for providing the basic privacy that I need is an overkill.
Verdict on enom.com as Domain Name Registrar
I DO NOT RECOMMEND enom.com for buying domain names as their total price is too high.
