Changes to .biz and .gb.com domains

Posted by sbh-admin on 31 03 2017.

Following the ICANN changes to domain registration, transfer, and renewal procedures in November (for anybody who missed it, the blog post in question is linked below), there are a couple of minor changes that have happened this month.

The first is that all .AR.COM, .GB.COM, .HU.COM, .KR.COM, .QC.COM, .NO.COM, .SE.COM, and .UY.COM domains will cease to operate on April 30th 2017 (even if they expire after that date). This is due to changes by the organisation who manages and owns the namespaces in question, and is something that’s out of our control. All customers affected by this change have already been contacted.

The second change is to pricing for the .biz namespace. We’ve increased the price of .biz domains. Please see the pricing table below. All prices listed do not include VAT, but VAT will be calculated and added during the order process.

.biz Registration Transfer Renewal
1 Year £26.00 £26.00 £26.00
2 Years £52.00 £26.00 £52.00
