A new registry has been delegated management of the .io domain ending. As is often the case, this will result in a price increase on .io domain names.

Starting December 31, 2021 at 4:00 PM Pacific (January 1, 2022, at 00:00 UTC), we will be carrying over this price increase to our own prices.

We’re aware this price increase may have a negative impact on you. Please understand that Gandi has no choice but to pass on the price increase. To learn more about how much a domain name costs and what comes with it, we invite you to read our blog post on the topic.

Please refer to the new prices of the .io domains at Gandi in Grid A (in USD), for domain creation, renewal, transfer and restore below.
