Donuts Will Decrease Pricing for New .BUSINESS and .COMPANY Domains

Effective at 16:00 UTC on October 1, 2016, Donuts will adjust downward the standard wholesale price for new, non-premium registrations in .BUSINESS and .COMPANY.

Donuts says that “This adjustment better aligns registration prices with emerging market pricing for fully generic TLDs and further facilitates their bundling into fixed price web presence and hosting packages.”

Following are the details of this update:

  • New, non-premium registrations from October 1 forward—and future renewals or transfers of these names—will enjoy the lower price.
  • All existing registrations (a combined approximate 60,000 registrations in these gTLDs) are unaffected by this change. Renewal and transfer pricing will remain unchanged from its current level.
  • If any registrations in this same approximate set of 60,000 registered before October 1 are surrendered by their current registrants and deleted, but then are subsequently registered by another party (including after October 1), the higher wholesale price will apply.
  • Subscribers to our Domains Protected Marks List (DPML) similarly are unaffected.
These seem very confusing and most people outside the domaining business will never understand it.
