.Net wholesale price goes up once again on February 1st, 2014. That means you have less than 24 hours to renew your .net domain names for 1 to 10 years so you can save a few $.
.net wholesale price increased on January 15th 2012. Price went up 10%: from $4.65 to $5.11. The .net price also increased to $5.62 on July 1, 2013 and will increase again tomorrow. From $5.62 price will go up to $6.18 on February 1st, 2014.
Since the registry .com price stays at $7.85 until November 30th, 2018 (when Verisign .com contract expires) you can expect Verisign to increase the .net domain name price whenever they are allowed to.
Verisign is allowed by it’s contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to increase the registry price for .net 10% every year. I believe that Verisign’s target is to reach the .net price at $8.20 until 2017. That will be higher that the current .com price that will stay at $7.85 until 2018.
All fees don’t include the ICANN fee and are wholesale prices from Verisign to the registrars.
