Hi Joly,

Last year in January our domain provider, Verisign, hit us with a price
increase for .com and .net registrations, with another increase coming in
July for .net. As irritating as these increases have been for us, we're
sorry to say that any protests regarding these increases have fallen on
deaf ears. We've held off on passing this increase to our customers for an
entire year simply because we didn't want to believe it was true.

However, we are sad to report that we've allowed reality's harsh embrace to
alter our thinking on domain pricing for .com and .net domains. As of June
15, 2013, we will be increasing the price for .com and .net domain
registration and renewals to $11.95 per year.

Due to our commitment to non-profit organizations and all of the good work
that they do, we will NOT be increasing the price for ".org" domain
registrations and renewals at this time. They will stay at the current rate
of $9.95 per year.

We're sorry to be the bearers of bad news and wish we didn't have to follow
in Verisign's footsteps on this, but them's the breaks.

Thanks for your understanding.
