Verisign will increase the .com price from $7.85 to $8.39

com / net domains

Verisign announced today in its fourth quarter and full year 2020 results that it plans to increase the price of .com in 2021.

Verisign will increase the annual registry-level wholesale fee for each new and renewal .com domain name registration from $7.85 to $8.39, effective Sept. 1, 2021.

There are about 152 million domain name registrations .com today so Verisign will make about $82 million more in the next year following the price increase out of thin air.

Verisign will be able to increase the price of .com in the next 3 years as well.

Verisign will suck about $3 billion dollars out of the world economy just by having some powerful friends at ICANN.

Nice job from ICANNT and the US/Trump government for allowing Verisign to print money!!! The least ICANN deserves is what is now happening at Nominet.

Without a public tender for .com this is practically common theft using the .com monopoly. Read more details here.
