Price of .Club domains will increase in each of the next 3 years

club domains

The .Club registry sent notice to registrars that its wholesale pricing for registrations and renewals will increase gradually in each of the next 3 years.

The current .club wholesale price is $8.05 and has been such since .club launched in May of 2014.

This is the plan for the wholesale price increases over three years:

Current Wholesale price: $8.05
Wholesale price effective July 1, 2019: $8.95
Wholesale price effective July 1, 2020: $9.45
Wholesale price effective July 1, 2021: $9.95

This is a $1.90 price increase until July 1, 2021.

You can renew your .club domains until July 1 and save a few bucks in the future.

This is what the .club registry said after the announcement of the price increase:

There have been a few posts regarding increases to the .CLUB wholesale pricing that we would like to clarify. First, as the Registry Operator, we only set the wholesale price for a domain registration/renewal. Our registrar and reseller partners are responsible for setting their desired margin and retail price, and, frankly, there is a wide range of retail pricing with registrars marking up our wholesale price from as low as 10% to as much as 100% or more. We have no control over this.

Our current wholesale price is $8.05 and has been such since we launched in May of 2014. We announced to our registrars a plan for modest wholesale price increases over three years as follows:

Current Wholesale price: $8.05
Wholesale price effective July 1, 2019: $8.95
Wholesale price effective July 1, 2020: $9.45
Wholesale price effective July 1, 2021: $9.95

This represents a price increase of a total of $1.90 over the course of eight years, and in our eighth year of release, our wholesale price will remain less than $10.00. This is very much in line with .COM and .NET and far below the average cost of other gTLDs. We announced this three-year plan to continue our policy of transparency and to give our registrar partners, and you, the confidence of long term price stability.

It is a competitive retail market, so please check prices at different registrars.

  1. The extension is a bust, would be declining in numbers without the dubious Chinese promotions, give it a few more years and it will be another “quietly sold” tld.

  2. You can renew your .club domains until July 1 and save a few bucks in the future.
    😀

    Why not drop them and save a few bucks now?
    Great article, TY
