    We're writing to let you know that we will be increasing the price of all our .uk extensions (including .co.uk, .me.uk, .org.uk and .uk) on 13 January 2020, due to the registry increasing their domain costs.

    This price change will affect all .uk domain name registrations and renewals, with fees increasing from the current price of £9.99 to a new, standard price of £11.99.

    If your .uk domain is due for renewal in December or later, make sure you take advantage of our existing rates by manually renewing your domain before January 13, 2020!

    A £2 price rise...

    That's just plain dishonest. A £2 price rise cannot be due to a 15p increase at the Registry.

    I'm sick of this industry and its lies.

    Okay - so the competition to charge the most for a UK domain...

    Names.co.uk in the lead at the moment with £14.99

    I can (marginally) understand if additional services are thrown in as well, but for a basic domain registration...

    123 are just having a laugh, they charge 99p +Vat to register a uk then add 'Domain Ownership Protection' for 5.99 (11.99 per year after the first year)!

    What does Domain Ownership Protection get you? they say

    Domain Ownership Protection keeps your domain protected from threats like domain hijacking and honest mistakes like accidental transfer or missed renewals.

    and includes

    Password protection for increased domain security
    Complete identity protection through removal from the WHOIS database
    Guaranteed failsafe renewal if yours fails for any reason
