The flagship domain name registrar GoDaddy is due to hike its prices by July 1, 2010. I am sure that this news will come as a upset for most bloggers who must already be on a shoe-string budget.
The expected hike in price for registeration is upto 7-10%. The hike will apply to domain extensions both .COM and .NET. Both new registerations and renewals will be hiked in prices.
GoDaddy is a very popular domain registrar with millions of customers who rely on them for registering a domain name of their choice. This increase in price of GoDaddy comes from new policies of VeriSign – the registrar for .COM and .NET domains. And the rates will be increased by July 1, 2010.
Although, my domain registrar is NameCheap. I think they will also be increasing the domain registration costs soon. This news will realy be a kind of upset for the blogosphere.
