Domain pricing changes

Written by Kieran Jones

As a general rule we try to avoid increasing our prices wherever possible, in fact the last time that we changed our domain pricing was early 2016. Unfortunately, between price increases by registries and the impact that the current economic and political landscape has had on exchange rates, regrettably we are forced to adjust our pricing.

This will be implemented in two phases; prices for most domains such as .com, .net, .org etc. will change today, whilst pricing on .uk domains will take effect on the 13th of January 2020.

We’ve tried to keep price increases to a minimum, for example .com domains are increasing by £1.50 per year for single year registrations/renewals/transfers. For UK domains we will actually be 10p cheaper for 1 year registrations/renewals, but slightly more expensive at 30p per year more for two or more years registrations/renewals. As ever, these prices are including VAT.

There is some good news though, we are introducing support for a large number of new domains, which increases the selection that we offer over ten fold! You can now view all our domains that we offer along with their pricing on our website in one simple (albeit rather long) table, just visit https://www.freethought-internet.co.uk/domains/price-list.

Whilst these price increases are disappointing, we are still delighted to remain extremely competitive; on average we are 26% cheaper than leading registrars such as 123-Reg, GoDaddy, and TSOHost. In fact we’re as much as 62% cheaper when comparing our UK domain pricing with GoDaddy. Plus when buying through Freethought you know you’re buying from a 100% carbon neutral, ethical, and entirely UK based company with a reputation for excellent customer service.

As always, if you have any questions then please get in touch with us by email, live chat, or give us a call on 03300 882130.
