Link to a forum : Yahoo! Domain Renewals Increase to $34.95/year?

May 28,2008
First post of this forum :

First Microsoft tries to buy Yahoo!, now Yahoo! raises their domain renewal rates.

Important note: Beginning on July 1, 2008, Yahoo!'s annual domain renewal price increases to $34.95 per year.

If this is accurate would this be considered Highway Robbery? Or do they think their customers are fools? Can they really justify that large an increase? Or are they just being greedy and hope their customers don't Google for GoDaddy.com?

Apparently the above quote was sent by email to people who have their domains registered with Yahoo! I'm not one of them. But I just visited their site and they make absolutely no mention of the increase. They do have a plan that has domain name plus email for $34.95 a year

So if this is true, this is truly a smack in the face to a lot of people who use Yahoo! to host their domain. (Can you say mass exodus?) If it's not true, sorry to waste your time Smiling ."


  1. It looks like many person in the same boat! I heard that Yahoo make no profit with domain business and they are looking for the way to minimize this loss by increase domain prices. Yes, it is the time to act for Yahoo domains now. I have found new registar with cheap domain transfer rates and I will start moving now!
    As the increase infomation has been sent out by email from Yahoo and you see nothing about pricing increase from your Yahoo domain account so for sure, many persons (did not read the email well) will cry when they see the bill!!!

  2. its very true of what you write there... Yahoo suck, cheat us to signin, con us...

    i dont see any goodness to continue with yahoo

    i'm transfering my domain to oth service provider, any good recommendation?
