Domain costs soar at TLD registry Uniregistry. Renew now!

We hate to be the bearer of bad news but, unfortunately, we have some to share. TLD registry Uniregistry has announced big price hikes for many of its top-level domains (TLDs). While current registrants can renew some of their domains at the old pricing, new registrants should act fast to secure domain names before increases kick in.

Act now to secure your domain at current cost

Uniregistry, one of the biggest domain name registries, is increasing costs for 16 of the 27 TLDs it manages.  

EuroDNS will continue to offer these domains but, inevitably, Uniregistry’s price hikes will be reflected in our retail prices.

These increases will take effect on September 8th and, in some case, they are dramatic. 

For some TLDs, no legacy pricing will be made available which means the new cost will apply even to renewals. If you have one of these domains registered, it is urgent that you renew now. 

The following list indicates the TLD, the old and new registration price, and whether or not legacy pricing is available for renewals.

Practical, low-cost solutions to help you save

If you want to lock in your domain name at current pricing. We encourage you to consider the following proactive, practical, and lower cost actions you can – and should – take: 

Register new domain(s) now

If you were planning to register any of these domains, we strongly encourage you not to wait. Register your domain(s) now at current pricing.

Renew existing domain(s) for full ten-year period

Likewise, if you already have one (or more than one) of these domains registered, consider renewing for the maximum registration period of ten years, an option that is fortunately available with all of these domains.

Transfer existing domain(s) you have registered elsewhere

If you are looking to consolidate your domain portfolio at EuroDNS, now is the time to transfer domains you have registered elsewhere.  Again, the cost savings could be significant. See our domain transfer page for more information.
