Notice: New Domain Extensions Price Increases From Uniregistry

The registry operator, Uniregistry, has announced a number of significant price increases, taking place on September 8th, 2017 (00:00 UTC). Certain TLDs will have moderate price increases, while others will have significant hikes. Renewal prices will differ depending on the type of increase (details below). Despite these changes, we will continue to support all affected TLDs and we recommend that you adjust your end-user prices accordingly. Here’s what you can expect:

The prices for TLDs with moderate increases will
renew at the new pricing.

price increases

The prices for TLDs with significant increases will be grandfathered. This means that domains registered BEFORE September 8th will renew at the original, pre-increase price going forward. Also, you are required to quote the grandfathered renewal price at the time of renewal if you are using the API to initiate the renewal.
IMPORTANT for API users (resellers): Due to system limitations, there are no safeguards against the 9 TLDs whose prices are increasing significantly. Because of this, we encourage you to either adjust your prices or simply discontinue the extensions that have significant price increases to ensure your customers are not unknowingly overpaying. Domains registered before September 8th can be renewed at their original price by quoting the renewal fee in the API command.

Note regarding a recent Enom service issue

Late last week, Enom experienced intermittent issues in which our customers' information changes failed to update quickly and some systems appeared to act erratically. We want to give you a little clarity on what happened and our response since: First, your updates are safe and our systems remained operational throughout. The issue revolved around how changes – including items like account updates, DNS updates, reports, and WHOIS data – were replicated so that they would be “visible” to you. For instance, if you purchased a domain, it may have failed to show up in your domain control panel. The domain would still be yours, however. As of now, all of your data should be current again. Second, as you might expect, our main priority during this period was making sure your changes were visible in all our systems. This work is what made systems appear erratic at times. This focus on restoration resulted in our external communications lacking consistency across our account management, …
