New domain pricing

announcements

We are always looking for ways to offer more value in your Winhost account, and we think that we deliver the highest quality hosting in our price class. But (you knew there was a “but,” didn’t you!) unfortunately there are some costs that we cannot control, and domain registration and renewal is one of them.

We are subject to ever-increasing domain registration and renewal prices, and while we have absorbed those increases up to now, we find ourselves at a point where we are charging you less for domain registration or renewal than we are paying for those services.

inflationSo in order to continue providing the service, we have to raise domain name registration and renewal prices. On August 30th the price will go from $10 to $12.95. We sent you an email notification of the increase and changes to our terms of service that are now required for domain name resellers.

So why are we mentioning it again here in the blog? Because we wanted to let you know that there is a way to save some money on your upcoming renewals. We have updated the Control Panel so we can now offer multi-year renewals – up to a maximum of 10 years. So if you love your domain name (and who doesn’t?) and want to secure it for a long time to come, you can do it now at the current domain renewal price of $10.

In the past you could only renew for a year at a time, but in anticipation of the price increase, we wanted to offer you a way to renew for a longer period at the current price.  Remember, on August 30th that price increases, so if you want to lock in the lower price, you have to make your move in the next six weeks.

We know you have a seemingly infinite number of choices for domain renewal (and web site hosting), and we really appreciate that you have chosen Winhost. We work hard every day to earn your loyalty. Thanks!
