Bahamas Imported Vehicle Cost Calculator

Since the implementation of value added tax (VAT) in January 1st of 2015 by the Government of the Bahamas, the revenue performance has opened the door for several customs duty reductions and some tariff eliminations to ease the burden on Bahamians.

In light of this, Custom duty rates in The Bahamas, for those wishing to import used vehicles, are determined by the value of the vehicle.

For instance, if a vehicle costs $10,000 or less, you will be charged a duty rate of 65%. And if a Vehicle is valued at $10,001 to $40,000, it will also stand at a rate of 65%. The same applies to Vehicles priced over $40,000; except for Vehicles/Trucks (over 20 tons), which are rated at 85%. For Hybrids and other electric vehicles duty rate is only 25%.

Taxicab owners would also now be able to import duty free used vehicles up to three-years-old as opposed to the current existing restrictions of new cars only.

The government has also banned the importation of wrecked vehicles and cars more than ten years old.

Other charges may include: 1% processing fee, environmental levy fee for vehicles, storage fees, freight and insurance and landed charges. And here is the link to the Frequently Imported Items.

Please bear in mind that the 7.5% VAT is not included with such fees and it must be paid separately. The VAT amount can be obtained by multiplying 7.5% to the Total Landed Cost.

So, to make it easy, we have come up with an Imported Vehicles cost calculator that will facilitate that calculation of the cost of your imported vehicle.

The .ONLINE domain extension debuts on our platform

The fact and the matter is that we are spending most of the time online. Thus, virtual reality has turned, indeed, into an actual reality for us.

That said, we are happy to welcome the apt-titled .ONLINE nTLD on our platform!

Thanks to the recently confirmed accreditation agreement between Resellerspanel and Radix, we can now offer .ONLINE domain registrations at an attractive price.

Some .ONLINE history

Launched on the 26th of August, 2015, .ONLINE managed to score the remarkable 38,000+ registrations within 24 hours, which is a true record for a new TLD ‘on the block’.

Within a period of less than three years, the registrations reached the astonishing 660,000 mark.

Today, .ONLINE is the 8th most registered nTLD on the market.

In terms of global awareness, .ONLINE is the 3rd best-known nTLD and the most popular nTLD in Europe, especially in France, Germany and Poland.

Why choose .ONLINE?

If you aim to position your personal or business profile directly in the virtual world, the .ONLINE extension will instantly tell people where they can find you.

Its descriptive virtual characteristics give it a competitive advantage over other catchy nTLDs like .XYZ and .SITE.

Here is why .ONLINE is the perfect TLD choice for your personal or business online presence:

  • Has a global feel

The word “online” is instantly recognizable around the world. Although 42% of the .ONLINE domain names are registered in China, 67% of the .ONLINE-ending sites are, in fact, in English.

  • Meaningful and hack-friendly

A study has shown that 700,000 domains currently contain the word “online”. This means that most of the attractive site names featuring it have already been taken and are unavailable under .COM and .NET. The .ONLINE nTLD, which contains the word “online” in itself, will shorten your site name and will allow you to coin creative hacks like dentalservices.online or date.online.

  • Self-expressive and unique

The online world offers you a “blank canvas”. You can use it to “depict” your uniqueness and to promote your future projects. Even more so, given the fact that today’s overcrowded gTLDs offer limited opportunities for nailing down a catchy site name.

Here is a list of the possible scenarios for using the .ONLINE nTLD for your projects:

.ONLINE registration details

.ONLINE is open for registration to anyone for a period of 1-10 years.

The .ONLINE domain registration process is quick and simple, with no specific requirements to follow.

.ONLINE domain names that have been registered with another registrar can be transferred over to us at the same price.

An EPP key will be required for the transfer procedure to complete successfully.

.STORE – the perfect namespace for your e-store, has premiered on our platform

One of the newest and most highly anticipated domain extensions – .STORE, has just debuted on our platform.

The new web address for e-commerce sites is concise, appealing and, most of all, indicative that you have something to sell.

Learn more about the benefits of offering .STORE domain names on your store and see how you can enroll in the attractive ongoing .STORE promotion.

Some ‘hiSTOREy’

According to Resellerspanel, the .STORE domain extension was officially launched just a couple of years ago – in February 2016, as part of ICANN’s New gTLD Program.

Considering its great e-commerce potential, there was a fierce competition between the companies that wanted to gain .STORE namespace management rights (among them were Google and Amazon).

Finally, these rights were delegated to Radix – the company that also stands behind other killer nTLDs like .SITE, .WEBSITE, .SPACE and .ONLINE.

The launch of .STORE was indeed an eagerly anticipated event – 10 000 domains were registered in the first 10 minutes alone. By the end of its debut day, this number soared to 25 000.

All in all, more than 120 000 .STORE domains have been registered so far, which is a true record for a new gTLD.

Why register a .STORE domain?

.STORE represents a recognizable and reliable namespace for any business looking to enhance their online presence.

As its very name suggests, the extension is especially suitable for online stores.

This, in turn, makes it a preferred choice over the overcrowded .COM namespace, for example.

Here are just a few of the key reasons why you should choose the .STORE extension for your online store:

  • Self-indicative

Your .STORE-ending web address will inform your potential customers that you are ready to serve their orders.

Offers more catchy options than .COM does

Being just 2 years old, .STORE is still an uncrowded namespace where the likeliness of getting your most desired domain is much higher than with other commercial extensions like .COM or .CO.

  • A great extension for your offline shop

.STORE represents a great ‘springboard’ for any brick-and-mortar business. No matter how small it may seem, each offline shop has a greater chance of growing big with an online presence namely under .STORE. The latter will help them expand their reach and increase their customer base.

  • Can serve as a second address for your e-shop

If you are already selling goods or services online under another namespace, you can use .STORE as a second web address and take your customers straight to the shopping section of your website. This is a great way to open more doors to your business and to increase your chances of prospects finding you.

Also, the .STORE extension gives you the opportunity to highlight the checkout pages of websites offering merchandise as a side service.

  • Allows you to brand your marketplace profile

If you have a profile in any of the popular e-commerce platforms like Etsy or Amazon, you can register a .STORE domain to craft a memorable address for your storefront. This will make it much easier for visitors to find your page and remember its URL.

  • Offers automatic recognition for your digital storage business

A natural choice for any vendor offering server storage services, the .STORE extension will also befit sellers of hard drives, hosting companies, warehouse space providers, etc.

  • Excellent for retail store reviewers

The .STORE namespace is also excellent for writers and bloggers who specialize in reviewing retail shops and outlets.

.STORE registration details

.STORE is open for registration to anyone for a period of 1-10 years.

The .STORE domain registration process is quick and simple, with no specific requirements to follow.

.STORE domain names that have been registered with another registrar can be transferred over to us at the same price.

All about web hosting

According to Internet Live Stats (Elaboration of data by International Telecommunication Union (ITU), World Bank, and United Nations Population Division.), around 40% of the world population has an internet connection today.

In 1995, it was less than 1%. And since then, the number of internet users has increased tenfold from 1999 to 2013. As of July of 2016, the number of users reached almost 3.5 billion.

See table below as of July 2016 estimate:

* estimate for July 1, 2016

But despite that alarming number of users, which is almost half of the world population, most people don’t have a clue about how domain and web hosting work.

Though they have access to the internet, though they have some kind of account, either email address which they use for communication or any social media account that they use for interaction between friends and so on, their level of understanding about domain names and how it works, is very limited.

But how did we get to find out about their limitations?

Just a few days ago before writing this article, we decided to distribute some flyers locally about web hosting services. To our surprise, many people who had all kinds of accounts on the internet, had no clue of how domain names and Web hosting services worked.

Now I have decided to put some information together so people can understand in simple terms what web hosting service is all about.

First of all, we need to understand what a domain name is:
Domain name – according to Wikipedia, is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control within the Internet. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of the Domain Name System (DNS). Any name registered in the DNS is a domain name.

A domain name is a unique name that identifies a website, a person’s name or a country on the internet. In other words, whenever you access the internet and visit a website, say; EagleProWeb.com, the domain name will appear in the “address bar” of the web browser, which is EagleProWeb.

Some domain names are preceded by “www” (which is not part of the domain name), while others omit the “www” prefix. But all domain names must have a domain suffix, such as “.com, .net, or .org.”

The domain suffix helps identify the type of website the domain name represents. For example, “.com”, are domain names typically used by commercial websites; while “.org”, domain names often used by non-profit organizations.

Some domain names end with a country code such as “.pt” (Portugal), “.it” (Italy), while others may end with personal codes, such as “.me”, which in both cases, it helps identify the location and audience of the website.

So here is a more concrete example; say you have a company called XYZ LTD and you would like to have an online presence so other people who have access to the internet may see it.

Your first step would be to purchase or register a domain name from a company that sales it.
That name has to be unique, as it will be used to identify your company on the internet.
In your case, your domain name would be the name of your business “XYZ and whatever extension you decide to choose for it”, either “.com” or “.org” (xzy.com).

But the domain name by itself without content is practically useless.
You will need to let people know what your business is all about, meaning, creating a website for it with all the information about the business, whether services you offer or products you sell.

Once you have created the site – the domain name and webpage by itself won’t help much either – unless you have found a web hosting service provider to host your site’s content so it can be seen on the internet.

What then is web hosting all about?

Web host or web hosting is the activity or business of providing storage space and access for websites. Those web hosting service providers provide the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed on the Internet. Web sites are hosted or stored on special computers called servers.

In conclusion;

Your domain name is the name of your site or your url (www.myxyzcompany.com) and can be purchased by going to a domain name registrar. Hosting Company, on the other hand, is like a storage facility for your website content. That site’s information (your site’s content) is kept there on their servers for a fee, either monthly or annually.

So, if you want a website, you need a domain;
And if you want to have an online presence for your business, you need some type of web hosting service provider. At EagleProWeb, we can help you have a domain name and web hosting service, both managed from one location.
