Domain Name Prices Going UP

If you hadn’t heard, domain name purchase and renewal prices for .com and .net are going up  by 7% and 10%, respectively.

The announcement came to me from a GoDaddy email. The change was brought about by Verisign; so, expect all registrars to up their prices.

What can you do right now? If you haven’t already done so, renew all of your domains immediately to take advantage of renewals while they’re still at their current prices. Come July 1, 2010, you’ll be paying higher fees, like it or not.

This is really not that big of a deal unless you own a lot of names and then it makes sense to renew them before July 1.
