Price increase on 43 extensions

Feb 10, 2015  - written by  in Domain names

If you have followed recent financial news, you have certainly noticed the historic high of the US Dollar versus the Euro.

The direct implication of this high for a European company that purchases goods in US Dollars is that there is an increase in costs. The consequence of this is that we are losing money in certain price rates.

And as our business model is to not use domains as a loss leader to push other products, we must revise our prices on the extensions in question in order to be able to continue to bring you the best possible quality of service.

Despite this, we will continue to allow you to benefit from the promotions that have been negotiated with the registries, notably with a major operation coming soon, and if the Euro/Dollar trend turns around and stabilises, we will readjust our prices downward.
