As per our earlier blog post https://blog.netearthgroup.com/io-promotion/ this pricing should have been reverted back to normal pricing in December 2021, it was missed and as such has now been rectified.
The .IO registry although has a new promotion, has ended for renewal and transfers. therefore with immediate effect, the pricing has been updated to:
Register : $42.00
Renewal : $49.95
Transfer : $49.95
There are numerous other updates over the next 2 days including increases for “.NET, .INFO and others”. Promotions for Donuts TLDs, and we are working on the best way to provide this to you. It may well end up in an excel spreadsheet so that you can import it into your own billing application (but lets wait and see).
