The following Generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) registry cost increases are effective from 1st September 2013:
- Afilias, the registry operator for the .info domain extension has announced a price increase of $0.74/year
- Neustar, the registry operator for the .biz domain extension has announced a price increase of $0.78/year
In line with our transparent cost plus pricing policy for domain names, our charging for these domain extensions has now altered as follows effective immediately:
- .info increase from £12.84 to £13.36 plus VAT per year
- .biz increase from £12.76 to £13.69 plus VAT per year
While the portion payable to various registry operators for these gTLDs on each domain transaction has increased, it’s important to note that there is no increase in the portion of the cost which remains with the registrar (OpenSRS) or ourselves.
