Verisign, the domain name registry that controls the .com domain (as well as .net and others), just notified its registrars (the companies that actually sell domain names to end users) that the wholesale price of .com domains will be raised 7%, from $6/year to $6.42/year. Expect registrars, particularly discount registrars with little margin to play with, to raise their prices by roughly the same amount.

This doesn’t sound like much of an increase, but Verisign now has the right, pursuant to a renegotiated contract with ICANN, to continue to raise wholesale prices 7%/year pretty much indefinitely. And with roughly 65 million .com domain names registered worldwide, Verisign just added $27 million dollars per year to their bottom line"

Also i know ICANN decreased a bit his share from $0.25 to $0.22

The registry fee to Registrars for .net domain names will increase, from $3.50 to $3.85

The raise in pricing will take effect in October so any domain you're
going to keep renew for a few years be4 then..
:cool:

Prices to Registrars varies on the TDL.
They only pay 50 cents for .info

If anyone really was interested I'd explain the entire line from
ICANN allowing a new TLD (To Level Domain like .com, .net, .eu)
to you buying it..

They'd fuck a snake if someone would hold its head!
When they were in bed with NetSol it was even worse...
