A price increase is coming for .COM domains. Know what you can do now to get ahead, save money, and even make money!


On September 1, 2021 Verisign, the .COM registry, will raise the annual price for new .COM registrations, renewals and transfers by nearly 7% for all registrars. We, in turn, must raise our .COM pricing as well.

In addition to this year's price increase, Verisign has the right to increase .COM domain fees by up to 7% in 2022 and 2023, as well in 2026 to 2029.

The domain industry could face further .COM price increases in the upcoming years, making early renewals attractive - particularly if securing domains for multiple years.

By renewing your domains for 10 years now, you could save up to $37.40 USD per domain!

Based on our current Basic pricing, a .COM costs 12.41* USD. Let's consider how that could look over the next 10 years if Verisign proceeds with all the approved increases:

Now 2021 4.6% 2022 7%** 2023 7%** 2024 n/a 2025 n/a 2026 7%** 2027 7%** 2028 7%** 2029 7%** 2030 n/a
12.41 12.98 13.89 14.86 14.86 14.86 15.90 17.01 18.20 19.47 19.47

*Prices shown do not include VAT.**Note, calculations based on 7% maximum approved percentage increase, actual increases may differ.

Benefit from multi-year renewal revenue and increased customer retention.

Give your customers notice on the increase, communicate how they can take advantage of the lower pricing - including how to lock in domains for multi-year registrations and renewals.

Now is the time to register, transfer in, and renew .COM domains.

Make sure to check your own portfolio and consolidate, renew, and register new .COMs before September 1.
