If you own a .info domain name, now's the time to renew it and if you've ever wanted a .info domain name, now's the time to get it. The reason is on July 1, 2017 at midnight UTC (which means June 30, 2017 at 5:00 PM PDT), prices on .info will be increasing by approximately 12% for all operations.

Afilias is raising info prices 12%, roughly $1 US dollar more for .info domains. Everyone has until the end of June to lock in the current .info pricing.

Thanks for letting us know.

Do .info price increases need to be approved by ICANN?

Ironically, I think eventually .com will become the cheapest tld, simply because it is the most carefully regulated. .Net prices have been going up dramatically already.

Yeah seems that way @Jeff.

This price increase make me want to drop other extensions and keep .COM domains even more. Don't even mean for resale, but domains I have for building out sites.

I understand price increases... but with new tech registries and DNS services are getting cheaper.

We all do.

I see this as a real possibilty

Email from Internet.bs about the .INFO price increase.

Dear Customer,

We hereby notify you of an increase to our current .INFO Registration, Renewal and Transfer fee pricing.

This increase is in line with a substantial increase in fees by the Afilias, the .INFO domain operator, which will affect all Registrars and will be applied from the 1st of July 2017.

From that date our pricing for each annual increment of a .INFO domain name (registration or renewal) and for each transfer of a .INFO domain name from one registrar to Internet Domain Services BS Corp will be as follows:

Basic rate - $12.19
Wire Only rate - $11.70
Domainer rate - $11.21

Please note that prices in other currencies are subject to change due to fluctuations in exchange rates.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this increase in pricing may cause, please be assured that we remain committed to continuing to offer our customers the low prices they have come to expect from us.

Yours sincerely,
Internet.BS
