Domain news: Price increase on dot-uk domains, elimination of multi-year rates

19 January 2016 01:22:12 +0000

The dot-uk registry is raising the price of their domains and eliminating lower pricing when registering for two years at a time effective 1 March, and so we must too.

This means that the new annual price for dot-uk domains will increase from US$14.00 to US$17.00 per year on 1 March. Most of this increase is due to the elimination of the lower pricing on biennial renewals.

Due to low demand for multi-year registrations and renewals, we’re also taking this opportunity to eliminate our multi-year pricing that we have offered on most domains we sell. In order to make a meagre profit on a ten-year registration/renewal we have had to charge a high enough single-year price that when you whittle down the price to what we’d offer for ten years (the maximum allowed by most registries), we were possibly making mere pennies. Given that we have absorbed domain price increases in the past, we would have actually lost money on a ten-year registration at our posted prices on some top-level domains.

We’ll still sell multi-year registrations and renewals, but any discounts will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.

If you have any questions, please let us know. Thanks for your business.

iCash.ca domain on auction

29 December 2013 01:18:35 +0000

We are selling the domain iCash.ca, and it is currently on auction until Thursday 2 January 2014 at 15:11 EST (20:11 UTC, 3:11 pm Eastern Standard Time). (See the World Time Server to calculate the time in your time zone.) The minimum bid to surpass the current bid, which has met the reserve price, is US$1050. Please visit the auction website, run by the domain brokerage Sedo, to place your bid.

Because the reserve price has been met, according to Sedo rules the domain will sell at the end of the auction, so if you want to buy it you need to bid on it now.

With the ubiquitous “i” prefix everywhere these days, iCash.ca could be used to promote a banking app for mobile phones — the iPhone in particular, of course.

If you have any questions, please contact NinerNet support. However, please note that all bidding and payment transactions (including escrow) must take place through Sedo on their website.
