CIRA is raising prices (1 Viewing)

Giving away money is foremost on their twitter account
 


I can't understand it, in the end a lot of these so called grants are going to be written off as they default.

It's like businesses now have to pay a forced charity tax just to hold on to their internet address, all so somebody at CIRA can say.... hey look at us!
 
More like... "Look at us... watching the Leafs and Raptors from the luxury box!"

Philanthropy is such a scam these days and everyone and their dog is getting massive corporate kickbacks for these "grants" and "donations".
 
Are we supposed to get a heads up if/when this price increase comes into effect?
 
Wholesale price of .ca domains increasing to $10.50 on September 1 (from $9.50).

(In 2018 price was increased from $8.50 to $9.50).

I see lotsofcoffee mentions Sept 1st as the date in the original post... and maybe this is the only heads up we'll get... but im wondering in CIRA ever announces price increases in advance?

I don't doubt @lotsofcoffee whatsoever but how can be sure this will in fact happen? I'm thinking i will do lots of renewals before Sept 1st, including possibly renewing some individual domains for 5-10 years in advance, but it would be nice to know that there will indeed be a price hike before doing so.

I would love to know too. My request to CIRA would be NOT to increase the price and to re-consider if there was such a plan. May be someone could enlighten us on this like @FM from WHC or Tom from @bmetal

CIRA has indeed announced a price increase for .CA domains for September 1st, 2023, which means we will need to adjust our pricing as well.
 
Thank you @FM Is there any history of CIRA changing their minds, other than clawing back domains??? ;)

The last time CIRA did a price increase, I wasn't working with any .CA registrar, so I wouldn't know if they ever changed their mind about something like this before :)

I would always welcome a "First of it's kind" for a worthy cause like this.

We should go protest and camp outside their office for weeks, convoy style.

They are dropping 1000 domains per week and will lose thousands more when domainers cannot hold massive catalogs anymore.

They need to think carefully before raising prices, I think the timing is not right.
Yeah I’m not impressed either… and many other cctlds definitively cost less to register at retail.

.de, .cn, .uk are all much cheaper for example, if I’m not mistaken.

I thought Cira was a non profit organization which btw i'm sure is making money, so how does it make sense for them to raise prices.... and if so why raise it a dollar. $1 is just greedy.

That is over 10%. Any guess why??
 
When you consider Trudeau is raising carbon taxes in 2023 and the Bank of Canada keeps hiking interest rates, you realize they don't really care how increasing costs are affecting the little people. In fact, it feels like they want to cause some pain.
