Few days ago, we were notified by our mother domain registrar that, VeriSign, Inc. will be increasing the cost to register .com and .net TLD’s effective from January 15, 2012. Here is part of the announcement:
DULLES, VA — (MARKET WIRE) — 07/14/11 — VeriSign, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRSN), the trusted provider of Internet infrastructure services for the networked world, today announced, effective Jan. 15, 2012, an increase in registry domain name fees for .com and .net, per its agreements with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
This will be the third price increase, by Verisign, in the last few years. Adding to this, recently the USD Dollar Rate has increased significantly as well. A few month ago it was 70tk per USD but currently it is something around 80tk per USD.
Up until now, we have absorbed the cost of these price increases, however, we can no longer continue to absorb these price increases. We were trying to manage it within ourselves but with both Verisign Price increase and USD Dollar Rate increase we are forced to increase our Domain Registration cost for .COM and .NET
We would also like to mention that we are not going to increase the price heavily at all. Our price will remain same on USD rate which is 10$ but in BDT the price would be 800tk(previously it was 700tk). Effective from January 14, 2012, all existing domain registrations maintained by TetraHostbd.com will increase to the new rate of BDT 800tk/year per domain for .COM and .NET. The new price will be applicable for both, single and multiple(Domain Reseller) domain registration.
Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions about this notice, please do not hesitate to reply this blog post.
