Today, we bring an important announcement that impacts both current and prospective customers. Beginning November 1st, 2023, there will be a 10% adjustment in the registration and renewal prices for domain names. We recognize that this news might raise questions and concerns, and we’re here to provide you with all the details you need to understand the reasoning behind this decision and how it may affect you.
In this blog post, we’ll delve into the reasons for this pricing adjustment, the implications for you, and the steps you can take to navigate this change seamlessly. Our commitment to serving your online needs remains steadfast, and we want to ensure that you continue to receive the best services and support from OzHosting. So, let’s dive in and explore the upcoming changes together.
Why the Change?
The decision to adjust our domain name pricing is not one we take lightly. We understand that cost considerations are crucial for our customers, and we’ve always aimed to provide competitive rates.
However, several factors have led us to re-evaluate our pricing;
- Upstream Provider Costs: Over the past 5 years, upstream providers have significantly revised their prices, while OzHosting has not adjusted domain prices during that time.
- Exchange Rate Impact: All .com domains and non-.au domains are purchased in USD, and the exchange rate price increase exceeds the price increase we are implementing.
- Competitive Edge: Many competitors with similar pricing do not provide customers with the necessary access to Zone Records for full domain control, often charging premium rates for such access.
- Industry Standards: Domain registration and management involve costs associated with domain registries and authorities (ICANN and AUDA), which have increased over time in line with industry standards.
- Infrastructure Investment: To maintain the high level of service, we’ve made significant investments in infrastructure, security, and technology to ensure the reliability and performance of your domain names.
What This Means for You?
Starting from November 1st, 2023, the prices for domain name registration and renewal will increase by 10%.
What You Can Do?
- Renew Early: If your domain name is up for renewal soon, consider renewing it before November 1st, 2023, to lock in the current pricing for an extended period (dependent on domain TLDs).
- Explore Our Value-added Services: In addition to domain registration, we offer various services to enhance your online presence, including website hosting, SSL certificates, and email hosting, designed to provide added value and convenience.
- Stay Informed: We are committed to keeping you informed about any further updates and changes.
At OzHosting, our goal has always been to support your online endeavors and provide you with the best possible service. We remain dedicated to delivering a seamless and secure domain registration and management experience.
