The registry fee for .uk domain names is increasing 15p, or 4%, to £3.90 from 13 January 2020, Nominet announced Tuesday.
The increase comes after an annual review of pricing and reflects
some of the increased costs of running the registry since prices last changed
in 2016. Having absorbed the majority of the costs, Nominet say they decided a
4% rise in the wholesale price was appropriate.
Announcing the increase, the .uk country code top-level
domain (ccTLD) registry say they’re committed to investing in meeting their
obligations as part of critical national infrastructure, developing the
resilience and reliability of their systems, delivering world-class customer
service, and increasing the promotion and visibility of .uk domains. Nominet
believes these investments are important and benefit all stakeholders.
Nominet say they set the wholesale prices for .uk domains, accessible to their members at a discounted rate, which one assumes means members pay a reduced registry fee.
