I had the same issue.
In my case, the problem was that in order to get an email box I had to take a server with PHP MyAdmin, a few GB, possibility of hosting my own website...
It was all or nothing, and that cost around what you say it does.
If you have just the domain name, you should pay around €3 a year.
It's a crazy price difference and it makes no sense there's nothing in between Confused | :confused:

You could check if your provider added any services that explain the price increase and if you can disable any of those services.
I'm currently hosting a website so I'm paying the full price.
Also, I've heard of more providers increasing their prices like that because €25 a year for an email address isn't profitable, according to them.
