For the first time in nearly 10 years, the world’s most popular domain name – .COM will receive a wholesale price increase.
The wholesale price of .COM domain names including new registration, transfer, and renewal prices will be increased by the end of this year, for the first time since 2012. If you own multiple domains, investors should prepare in advance. this change.
On this September 1, 2021, the .COM domain name registration fee that Verisign collects increased from $7.85 to $8.39, equivalent to $0.54.
Large domain name registrars such as GoDaddy, Namecheap may charge a higher fee, while others may only adjust the price slightly. This is obvious, because only then can the company ensure profits and continue to develop.
If true to the commitment, Cloudflare will only increase the price equal to this wholesale price, we will wait and see.
Not stopping here, it is predicted that the domain name price will continue to increase gradually up to 7% in the next 3 years. Right now, if you own a domain name, you can consider renewing it earlier or renew it for up to 10 years with some support providers to save on operating costs.
Of course, you can still choose to transfer when there is a deal on Coupontree.co, but if there are too many domains, this transfer will be quite time-consuming.
