From the 1st March, Nominet, the registry for all .UK domain names, will be increasing their domain name prices by 50%. Therefore with much regret we will be updating our prices in line with Nominets industry standard.
Russell Haworth, CEO of Nominet, said in a statement:
The new pricing structure will standardise the price of all .UK domain names (including .CO.UK, .ME.UK and .ORG.UK) to around £6.99 a year, regardless of the length of registration period.
But what does this mean for you?
These domain price changes will not come into effect until renewals due 1st March 2016. This means you can take the opportunity to review your existing domain names and look into renewing early to take advantage of the current pricing scheme. With this in mind, you may also want to purchase any new domain names youve been considering now, at the current lower prices.
If you renew your domain names now, before the 27th February, you can lock in your domain name at its current yearly price for as many as 10 years.
We know that price increases are an inconvenience for our customers, and as such we are committed to ensuring that you will still receive the excellent service and value for money you are accustomed to.
