How to buy an Israel (.co.il / .org.il) domain name

Israel has two public use second level domains, .co.il and .org.il. It does not yet support IDN, so latin letters only, which is quite an annoyance in a country that speaks hebrew.

According to the Israeli NIC, there are only 7 registrars allowed to sell .IL domain names, and of these only five supported english, of these, this were the prices for one year registrations

Communigal - $17
DomainTheNet - $18
IPMirror - $38
Internic - $49
Safenames - $129

So, the cheapest is this https://secure.communigal.net/

As an update, the domain was delegated to my nameservers by 06/23/2010 06:28:35 - about 5 hours after payment.

So reasonably quick.
