Several registries have announced price changes for their extension(s). .club will increase in three annual steps, .tirol will raise its price by €6,00 and .autos and .best will reduce their prices.
Since its introduction in January 2014, .club has shown continuous growth in registration volumes and adoption. As of now, only 5 years later, more than 1.5 million .club domains have been registered and the renewal rates are stable. The substantial marketing efforts of the registry certainly account for part of this success.
The .club registry has now announced its price plans for the next few years, taking into account that a clear price commitment will provide a solid basis for registrars and resellers to build upon. Over the next 3 years, the prices will increase in 3 small steps:
- On July 1, 2019, the member price will increase to $9.13; all tier prices will increase by $1.00
- On July 1, 2020, the member price will increase to $9.63; all tier prices will increase by $0.50
- On July 1, 2021, the member price will increase to $10.13; all tier prices will increase by $0.50
The price changes apply to new registrations, transfers and renewals. The restore price will not change. Premium prices remain unchanged as well.
Despite the price increase, the .club registry will continue to offer first-year registrations at fiercely competitive prices. If you want to help make .club a success, contact your account manager for more information.
Update 20 April 2020: the registry has postponed the price increase of the 1st of July 2020. On that date the price will not increase; on the 1st of July 2021 the price will increase by $1,00 instead of $0,50.
From September 1, 2019, registry .tirol will increase the price of each operation by €6.00. This change applies to new registrations, renewals, transfers, and reactivations. This price change will apply to the member pricing as well as to the tier pricing.
Tip: If you register or renew your existing .club and .tirol domains before the date of the price change, you will benefit from the current, lower pricing. Domains can be registered or renewed for a period of up to 10 years total.
From March 15, 2019, .autos will lift its eligibility requirements. Everyone can register his or her .autos domain after this date. One month later, on April 15, 2019, 16:00 UTC, the registry will reduce its prices. The new member price will be $50.18; tier prices can be found in the control panel from April 15.
From August 5, 2019, .best will reduce its prices for any domain name registered after that date. The new member price will be $15.18; tier prices can be found in the control panel from August 5. Domains registered before August 5, will be changed to premium domains, which means that their existing price remains unaltered and they’re not part of the memberships anymore. From September 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019 the price for .best in new gTLD memberships will be $1.18!
