In November 2015, Nominet the official UK registry has announced that it will be increasing wholesale domain prices.
‘We’re committed to running a first class service for .UK registrants, including our renowned customer service, and we’re doing more than ever before to ensure the .UK space is a safe and trusted home for all. But costs have risen considerably since we last changed the price, and we need to compete in a promotion-driven industry. We won’t compromise on the quality of our service or dial back our efforts to counter cyber-threats head on.
However, it’s important to us that .UK domains represent value for money as well as quality, and the price we have set reflects that.’
This change will regrettably affect the amount that YNH Ltd is charged for registering a UK domain name and will affect all names ending in .uk.
This price change will be effective from 1st March 2016 and will be the first price increase by Nominet since 1999.
Unfortunately we have to pass this cost on and the new price will be as follows:
£9.50 per year plus VAT.
Thank you for your understanding.
