Hi folks. Name.com always strives to offer the lowest price on all our products and up until today we've been able to offer Private Whois for free for a long time. These types of posts are never fun, and no one enjoys raising prices, but sometimes it becomes necessary so we can continue to offer these great services.
While some registrars charge as much as eight or nine dollars per domain for this service, our new promotional price, starting today, is only $1.99 per domain annually. This means we are still offering some of the best pricing for this service anywhere. We realize that changes like this can impact our customer's plans and budgets, so we've taken some proactive steps that we feel will help to curb the impact of this new change. Those actions are:
- All domains that currently have Private Whois already turned on will continue to receive it for free.
- The new pricing will begin today and will only apply to domains that don't already have Private Whois enabled and/or new domain registrations.
- We are running a promotional price of just $1.99/domain per year, which is one of the lowest prices available.
- We've created a promo code called "FREEWHOIS" that will discount the current special pricing of $1.99 to $0.00, making this service free for the first year for orders using this promo code.
We hope our customers understand this was a difficult decision for us to make, but that we've tried to soften the impact as much as possible. As always if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact our support department or your account representative.
