Urgent: Pricing updates from LogicBoxes / Registries

Filed under: NetEarth One,Registry Price Increase — chrisp @ 19:53

We have had a rather impulsive update to our pricing which through LogicBoxes is from the registries.

As you will notice most of them are nTLD’s, meaning the new gTLD names are not making as much for the registries as they were hoping and they believe to recoup it is best to “increase” the pricing and catch new registrations, transfers, and renewals (plus restorations). Some over 2000% increase in pricing, namely .HOSTING and .JUEGOS, let alone some being 400% increases – what a con I hear you say, I can’t disagree with you – we are flabbergasted at the short sightedness of the registries in question.

So the first 3 are going live September 1st 2017 at midday BST (11am UTC) :

TLD Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4 Tier 5 Restore

TLD                 Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4 Tier 5 Restore
.TV                 $33.00 $32.75 $32.50 $32.25 $31.99 $80.00 C
.SEX, .ADULT, .PORN $86.00 $86.00 $86.00 $86.00 $86.00 $130.00 C
.XXX                $91.00 $90.59 $90.39 $90.19 $89.99 $350.00 NC

We remaining will go live September 7th at 2300 BST (2200 UTC) :

TLD                 Tier 1 - 5  Restore
.CLICK              $11.25      $66.00 NC
.LINK               $9.29       $87.99 C
.HELP, .PICS        $27.25      $100.95 C
.PHOTO              $25.99      $108.95 NC
.TATTOO             $37.99      $108.95 NC
.SEXY               $46.00      $100.95 NC
.CHRISTMAS          $58.95      $108.95 NC
.AUDIO              $119.95     $250.00 C
.BLACKFRIDAY        $119.95     $250.00 C
.PROPERTY, .GUITARS $119.95     $250.00 C
.DIET               $119.95     $250.00 C
.FLOWERS            $124.00     $250.00 C
.HIPHOP             $101.00     $250.00 C
.HOSTING            $330.00     $350.00 C
.JUEGOS             $330.00     $350.00 C

The C and NC at the end mean the Restoration price has changed.

We deeply regret the short notice with the pricing updates above.

Donuts Price increase and decrease of some TLDs

Filed under: NetEarth One,Registry Price Increase — chrisp @ 18:58
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 :

.camera
.kitchen
.camp
.plumbing
.cleaning
.shoes
.dog
.solar
.glass
.toys

Tier 1: $ 44.70
Tier 2: $ 44.45
Tier 3: $ 44.05
Tier 4: $ 43.95
Tier 5: $ 43.90

Restore pricing has increased to $200.00

The following domains have had a decrease in their cost price :

.business
.company

Tier 1: $ 8.59
Tier 2: $ 8.19
Tier 3: $ 7.98
Tier 4: $ 7.78
Tier 5: $ 7.68

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.

Nominet price hike – effective February 29th 2016

Filed under: NetEarth One,Registry Price Increase — chrisp @ 16:04

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.
