Domain Registration Price Increase Beginning October 1st

By on March 28, 2008

Today, we received a copy of an email which was sent out to all ICANN accredited domain name registrars. You can review the original message below.

Beginning October 1st 2008 there will be a domain price increase.

The price for a .COM domain name registration will increase 7% from the current base price $6 to $6.86. This does not include ¢0.25 ICANN fee and registrar markup.

According to the ICANN-VeriSign Settlement, this 7% price increase can and may be implemented each and every year. This may be a good time to bulk-renew your domain names and register new domains while pricing remains low.
