Verisign has announced that as of September 1, 2021, .COM domains will experience a 7% price increase. Under the new agreements Verisign has struck with the U.S. government and ICANN, the company has been able to get authorization for such a move. Verisign has been permitted to increase .com prices up to 7% in 2022 and 2023 as well as between 2026 to 2029.
We strongly encourage you to renew yours.COM domain names for the maximum renewal period, which is up to 10 Years total, in order to minimize your exposure to the announced price increases. For example, if you’ve registered your domain name for 1 year, you can renew it for an additional 9 years.
