Looks like it's stemming from Verisign and they're passing the costs onto us.

"The change was brought about by Verisign; so, expect all registrars to up their prices."

The article says it best.

"The announcement came to me from a GoDaddy email blast. The extra .50 – .80 cents or so won’t make a difference to those who own a handful of domain names, but if you’re like me and own hundreds (or thousands), boy is this going to be painful."


Personally it's not a huge deal for me but for some of us here it might be a pain in the ass. Luckily the page comes with a bit of advice that may apply to you, but you probably already knew to do it anyway.

"What can you do right now? If you haven’t already done so, renew all of your domains immediately to take advantage of renewals while they’re still at their current prices. Come July 1, 2010, you’ll be paying higher fees, like it or not."
