What is the “Premium Pricing Event”?

Over a million new generic premium domains will have their prices lowered on November 5th, 2019.

Approximately 250,000 premium domains will drop in price and more than 840,000 premium domains will move to standard pricing. This is a great opportunity for domain investors and entrepreneurs to register the domain names of their choice, before prices drop, demand increases, and names go away.

Domains purchased between now and November 5th get the lower renewal rates. It is expected that many of the best names will sell very quickly on and after November 5th due to price drops. Registering names before the price drop via Pre-Order allow buyers to secure coveted domain names before they are gone.

Premium domain prices remain the same in the “Pre-Order stage” (starting now until November 5th), but buyers will get lower renewal prices for those domains. For instance, when a buyer registers a premium domain that drops to standard pricing on November 5th, during this window the buyer will pay the existing first-year premium price but only pay the standard price each year they renew that domain name.

A list of all affected domains and price adjustments is available for download here.

If you wish to apply for any of these domains, you have the following two options:

  • Order now: register and secure your domain names today at the current premium price.
  • Pre-order: apply now for your domain at a lower price. We will try to register the domain name as soon as possible on the release date, November 5th, 2019.
