    I went to renew a load of domains at 123-Reg and the price has already increased to £6.99 per year! I realise I'm late in the day, but it is still 29th Feb in the UK and their site states the price increase will be effective from March 1st. What can I do?

    Screen shot the page that mentions the price increase. Then contact them.

    Do a tag change and renew them @ http://www.domainmonster.com/

    Still £6.70 for 2 years on .co.uk, .org.uk and .me.uk

    .uk are at a higher rate. (but it's always been like that)



    Cheers :)

    Ok thanks, I've screenshot the basket and their page on price rises and emailed support! Hope they honour this. They must have gone home at 7 and set it to the new pricing lol

    They replied to the support ticket saying the price increase was 27th for renewals!! Can't believe it. I was never informed about this.

    Do they have to inform you about changes in pricing or T&C's?

    I thought part of Nominets terms which 123 obviously have accepted say they have to communicate their prices and terms. Part of their compliance details?

    Perhaps it depends on what OP meant by "informed about" and you mean by "communicate". Could merely updating their price list on their web site be enough?
