Uniregistry price increases (August 21)

Registry operator Uniregistry will increase the prices of 16 TLDs, in some cases by extremely significant amounts (effective as of August 21). We are far from pleased with these changes, because we feel that this type of increase has the potential to negatively impact consumer trust in new gTLDs.

Affected TLDs

With new selling prices of $100 or less, the price hike will have the smallest impact on the following 7 domain name extensions:

  • .click
  • .link
  • .help
  • .pics
  • .sexy
  • .christmas
  • .tattoo

The 9 TLDs below are hit hardest: these domain extensions will cost well over $100. In some cases, this means a price increase of up to 3,000%.

  • .audio
  • .juegos
  • .diet
  • .hiphop
  • .flowers
  • .guitars
  • .hosting
  • .property
  • .blackfriday

Consequences

Several registrars have decided to partially discontinue support for these TLDs or even drop Uniregistry domains altogether. We have decided to leave it up to you whether you want to continue selling these TLDs after the price increases come into effect.

Recommended actions

We strongly recommend that you inform your customers about the upcoming changes as soon as possible, so they aren’t taken by surprise. You can also offer your customers the option to renew their domains at current prices for up to 10 years.
