|With immediate effect, the Donuts registry has increased and decreased some of their TLD pricing. You would have just received an email from the platform detailing the signing up of new products as LogicBoxes had to move swiftly to separate out the TLDs this has effected.
Below is the new tier pricing – please update your billing applications and check your pricing within the platform ASAP – I cannot stress enough how important this is to do so that you are not selling at a loss.
The following domains have had an increase in cost pricing :
Tier 1: $ 44.70
Restore pricing has increased to $200.00
The following domains have had a decrease in their cost price :
Tier 1: $ 8.59
Restore pricing has increased, so this is now $200.00
Each price is per domain year as normal.
We have set the above TLDs to not be sold at this time until 1st October 2016 at 1700UTC so that you can amend the pricing within the platform. We have done this because hte registry has mentioned that hteir will be a “premium” added to domains bought or transferred from now until then and as we do not have a fixed amount of that premium it will be madness to allow the reg/transfer of these domains in this period.

LB are currently facing a DDOS attack on their DNS servers. Below are the IP addresses which have been affected:
In case your domains are using partially branded OrderBox Name servers or your fully branded Name Servers which are pointing to the above mentioned IPs, they may not resolve. Additionally, resource records within the Zone like A, MX, CNAME etc may not be fetched.
LB are working in coordination with the data centre to mitigate this attack as soon as possible. Please follow this thread for more information.

For the last few years we have had the renewal grace period “RGP” set for the following domains to 16 days : com/net/asia/biz/info and mobi.
As of today, this time-frame has been extended to 30 days, thus going forward, domain tlds com/net/asia/biz/info and mobi will have a renewal grace period of 30 days that expire from today.

We are pleased to announce that during Monday 14th March, we will have 40 new TLDs (nTLD’s) going live within the platform. These will probably create a few emails (thankfully not 40) when they are being signed up.
Below you will find the TLDs along with Registration/Renewal/Transfer and Restoration pricing. There will also be a csv file at the footer so that you can download and import into your application should you use the API.
Pricing is the same for all Tiers.
|TLD||Registration / Transfer / Renewal pricing||Restoration pricing|
|Pricing is in USD, per year.|

Nominet as of the 1st March 2016 will be amending their wholesale pricing for .uk, .co.uk, .org.uk and .me.uk.
The pricing is essentially an eye watering 50% on 2+ year registrations and renewals, and ~10% increase on 1 year registrations/renewals, Nominet’s argument is they have not changed the pricing since 1999, its now time to make a change, and then look at the pricing on a yearly basis.
On the plus side, and I use that term loosely, it now means all years are the same price – still not great mind you.
So the “per year” pricing for a .UK domain (.uk, co.uk, org.uk and me.uk) will be :
Tier 1 : $ 7.39
Tier 2 : $ 7.34
Tier 3 : $ 7.29
Tier 4 : $ 7.19
Tier 5 : $ 7.09
This pricing will become effective on the platform on the 29th February at 2200 UTC.

From our monitoring, circa 0500 UTC this morning LogicBoxes have had issues with API access as well as control panel slowness.
They started investigating this around 0700, circa 0900 they found an I/O issue on the primary database servers.
Currently they are monitoring the DB servers to identify the root cause. I will update this post when we have more information.
