.Org Prices to Increase on July 1

Public Interest Registry (PIR), the domain registry that manages .org domain names, will be raising the wholesale prices for .org domain names on July 1st, 2012. Most domain registrars typically follow suit, and the amount of the price increase generally depends on where you register domain names.

Domain registrars have been sending out emails to clients, and registrars like NameCheap have also been blogging about the price increase. While the increase isn’t much, it can be a burden for people and companies that hold a significant number of .org domain names.

There are a couple of ways you can save money though. First, you can renew, register, or transfer your .org domain names for the 2012 price prior to the July 1 price increase. A second way to save money is to see if your preferred registrar is running any .org registration or renewal deals in advance of the deadline. I’ve found that companies may run special offers to encourage customers to renew for several years to save money.

After June 30, prices on .org domain names will be going up, so if you have any in your portfolio, now is a good time to renew them.
