Increased price for domain renewal

By trederedet ·
I see my domain registrar increasing domain renewal prices every year. And now this is already a tangible cost, which is 10 times higher than the price of the initial domain registration. This is normal

Not that unusual

They make it cheap at the beginning to get your business and gradually increase the annual cost. Most established customers don't want to lose their domain and try to hold on to it for obvious reasons. The providers do make it cheaper if you renew for more than 1 year at a time.

Law of supply and demand. If you don't renew, you risk losing a domain and having to start over with a new one.

The real price is the renewal. The business selling the domain is willing to eat some costs of their own in the hopes that they will make more money from you in renewals and other upselling (website builders, privacy settings...) You can also always search for coupons that lower the price of renewals as well.
But typically, renewing a traditional .com domain will be around $9.99 for the entire year. Some domain name registrars even offer an automatic renewal, so you'll never run the risk of your domain name expiring and falling into the wrong hands.

Perhaps you registered a promotion domain. Then it is clear why domain renewal is more expensive. I registered in Panama a few years ago. But the cost of renewing domains is always the same. Try it out. BTW notice that some registries are increasing prices, like .COM will be more expensive for everyone soon. Like 7% more expensive.

I like that they do not hide anything and the price of domain renewal is visible for 10 years ahead.
