Extend the expiration date of senris.com for 9 years as a countermeasure to the domain renewal fee up to 70% increase

update Last updated: January 25, 2023 at 7:49 AM

Electricity and gas rates and soaring prices have become a hot topic in the streets, but the wave of soaring prices is surging into the world of the Internet.
This time, Verisign, a supplier of Internet domains, has announced that it will raise the price of ".com domain" by up to 70% over 10 years from 2021.
As a countermeasure against the price increase, I have decided to extend the term of my domain senris.com for 9 years.

A registrar that sells domains in Japan purchases .com domains from a registry called VeriSign.
According to Verisign's policy, the .com domain renewal fee for this ".com domain" is scheduled to increase by 7% annually. The fee will increase by 90 yen every year.

The registrar that manages the domain of my server is Japanese Value Domain (GMO DigiRock, Inc.), but due to the increase in purchase price and the impact of the weak yen, it is currently unavoidable to pass on the price. It seems that further price revisions are planned in the future.

The link below is a notice from Value Domain, ".com domain prices will increase by up to 70%! Introducing measures that you can take right now!" It is shown that the renewal fee will be increased.

Domain validity period extension

Therefore, in light of the foregoing, we decided to take early action to combat the rising .com domain prices.
As mentioned above, I have extended the domain validity period of senris.com for 9 years in the management panel of Value Domain and completed the payment procedure with the card.
Valid until December 29, 2032. Whether or not he survives is another matter...

The current domain renewal fee is 1,510 yen per year, but as per the notice below, the price will be revised to 1,786 yen from February 1, 2023.
