TIP: It's a best practice to retrieve domain price before any billable operation you're about to commit - there are many elements involved in domain price calculation, ranging from currency conversion rates to your personal discounts and promotions. Price you've retrieved today may differ from the one you've retrieved yesterday.

Using this API call various extensions and registration periods can be checked and compared, to pick the combination of price and extension that meet yours and your customer's demands.
