Price and policy changes .whoswho

The unique model of the .whoswho registry including content and naming policies appeared not to be too attractive. For that reason, the registry will simplify its policies and greatly reduce the price of a .whoswho domain as from the 1st of September.


Announcement price increases .net, .berlin and .hamburg

The registries of .net, .berlin and .hamburg have announced an increase of their wholesale prices. The .net prices will raise in February next year; the increase for .berlin and .hamburg domains has been splitted in two phases.

Early Access Program:

Some registries start their General Availability with a so-called Early Access Program (EAP). The EAP helps registrants immediately secure the domain names they’ve always wanted. Likewise, brand owners have an opportunity to obtain non-trademark domain names to help promote and protect brands, or register terms that dominate a market or industry.

  • 14 September: .games
  • 21 September: .shopping

More information about the EAP and why you should use it can be found in the blog.
