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 ."
