You misunderstand.  If you look more carefully, this Web page has
been put up there by EUnet GB's sales department.  Yes, they charge
you two hundred pounds to register a domain name and provide name
service for a year.  Several other UK providers charge similar fees.
But many US providers also have a standard fee for registering a 
domain name on your behalf and providing name service.

EUnet GB is a private company, one of several British Internet 
providers, not an organization like the Internic.
