It’s a topsy-turvy economic world and while we wish exchange rates would just stay the same forever (economic consequences of that aside), unfortunately that’s not the case.
Since Gandi does have to pay registries generally in the currency of the country they are located in, exchange rates are a factor in the pricing of our domains in any particular currency.
And due to recent fluctuations in currency exchange rates, we’ve had to make some adjustments to some of the rates of our TLDs. We wanted to let you know so you wouldn’t be surprised.
The good news is, most of the affected TLDs haven’t had any rate changes in the past three years.
In any case, starting 1 March 2016, most extensions registered by Centralnic will experience a price increase of 10% on prices IN EUROS (EUR) ONLY on all rate scales for all operations. The TLDs affected are the following:
.ae.org, .ar.com, .br.com, .cn.com, .eu.com, .gb.com, .hu.com, .jp.net, .jpn.com, .kr.com, .la, .no.com, .qc.com, .ru.com, .sa.com, .se.com, .uk.com, .uk.net, .us.com, .za.com
Also on 1 March, .co, .hn, .ht, .je, .ms, .sx, .vc, .im, .tl, and .tc will be going up as well, also by 10% and on all operations and rate scales. This increase applies to EUROS (EUR) but also to TAIWAN DOLLARS (TWD) as well.
Again on 1 March, .bank, .auto, .cars, .car, .luxury, and .ceo will be increasing by 5% on all operations at all rates in EUROS (EUR) and TAIWAN DOLLARS (TWD) ONLY.
On 1 March, 2016, prices on .gg will increase by 5% on all operations at all rates in EUROS (EUR) ONLY.
And finally, 1 March, 2016, rates for .gy, .mx, .sc and .travel will be increasing by 5% on all operations at all price scales in EUROS (EUR) and TAIWAN DOLLARS (TWD) ONLY.
