Changes to bulk domain pricing structures
As of 1st March 2016, Nominet (the official registry for .UK domain names) will be implementing a price increase across all .UK domain names.
This will result in wholesale prices of both new registrations and renewals of .co.uk, .org.uk, .me.uk, and .uk domains increasing by 50% on multiple year options; the wholesale price of all one-year .UK domains will be increased by over 7% too.
How will this impact you?
It’s with regret that this industry wide increase will impact both our standard and bulk domain pricing from 1st March 2016.
As of this date we will be introducing new bulk domain pricing tiers to address the Nominet increase, as well as the numerous other registry price rises which we have absorbed since launching LCN.com in 2000; in 16 years of business we have never increased our domain prices.
On 22nd February 2016 we will be reviewing your LCN.com account to identify the number of active domains which are present within it. This figure will be used to determine the ongoing bulk domain pricing tier which your account will be automatically set to.
We would encourage all of our customers to consolidate domains they may have in other LCN.com accounts they manage or those with other registrars before the 22nd February to benefit from the most competitive tiered pricing options available to you.
The table below will provide you with the updated tiered pricing structures which will come into effect on 1st March 2016.
|Extension||Standard||20+ domains||50+ domains||100+ domains|
|.co.uk .uk, .org.uk, .me.uk||$7.17||$6.45||$6.30||$6.16|
|.com .net, .org, .biz, .info||$14.42||$12.25||$10.65||$9.06|
We will periodically review our customers’ domain portfolios and update their tiered discounts accordingly. If at any point after the 1st March 2016 you have enough active domains within your LCN.com account to be eligible for greater discounts, please get in touch and we will apply the new tiered discounts.
If you have any queries in the meantime about the new pricing structure or your account with LCN.com, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
