    Ridiculous. I had an interesting exchange with them about this and their governance last week. Do you know what they said...i'm paraphrasing, but, they report to nobody and are not accountable or governed by any organisation directly. It shows...the greedy f**&ers.

    This is the trouble when they keep raising their bonuses quicker than people actually buy the domains. Too many snouts in the trough. They don't even try to hide their corruption anymore - they are 'untouchable'. You can see their disdain by the fact they didn't throw a stupid NED in here to tell us rubbish.

    I'd be interested to hear what these increased costs are of running the registry! As you say, totally ridiculous

    That will fund some more international ventures then. Like fibre broadband in Timbuktoo.

    On a year by year basis that's just below the rate of inflation ... I was fearing worse to be honest. 1.3% a year. It still adds up in bulk, and leaves questions about whether registrants are subsidizing expansion in other fields. 15p a year means a hit of £150 extra for 1000 domains. Well, a bit of extra VAT as well.

    15p extra is less than I was imagining, when the email came through and I read the subject line. Problem is, they really don't need to increase the wholesale cost of domains it's simply a matter of want. They see some easy growth and go for it. if 1 million domains are registered across the next year think of how much that 15p will make them!

    But if we look at the stats year-on-year, we can see that Nominet aren't performing as well this year (with Domains at least) as they were last year. Chasing turnover?

    Now we'll see if the top registrars only increase their prices by 15p.

    I think for accounting reasons it's easier for them to round it up to the next nearest £5 :D

    Thanks for the link to that article. Then by a couple of link leaps I came across reference to a £2 offer for .uks which I didn't know about. Is that offer still in operation? I'm assuming this is an old offer that's not available any longer. ???

    If you are a Member click on Promotions in the control panel and sign up

    IMO one of the reasons for a price rise is to pay for these promotions and co-marketing of larger registrars.

    I have also made a little site: www.15p.co.uk

    interested to hear of £2 .uk renewal promotions. Is that because registrars like 123reg have a ton of .uk renewals due and enables them to make even more profit on each one renewed?
