Gold.co.uk Reaches record sale of £600k

Gold.co.uk Reaches record sale of £600k

Not that this can at all be expected to go down as one of the great events in British history, but it is still a record none-the-less. Thanks to Rob Halliday-Stein, a rather distinguished British billionaire and the founder of BullionByPost, the record for the most expensive domain name in the UK is now £600,000. The domain in question that the gentleman spent a small fortune on is gold.co.uk.

Nominet to hike up .uk prices

NOMINET MEMBERS AGAINST 50% PRICE INCREASE .

UK Calling for a vote & consultation on .uk pricing


The organisation, which is the official registry for all UK domain names, decided to hike the price of wholesale domains it sells to ensure it is able to “compete in a promotion-driven industry”.

Price changes, which will see the cost for a name rise from £2.50 per year to £3.75, will affect all .uk domain names, including: co.uk, org.uk and me.uk, from 1 March 2016.

http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2015-11/26/nominet-uk-domains-price-rise


Nominet has announced that the cost of buying a .UK domain is going up, for the first time in ages.

Indeed, the price tag has remained the same during the whole of the 21st Century, with the last hike seen back in 1999.

So how much is the increase? Instead of paying £2.50 to secure your corner of the web (with .co.uk, .org.uk and so forth), next year the price will rise to £3.75, a 50% increase. This change will actually be implemented at the beginning of March 2016.

http://www.techradar.com/news/internet/web/nominet-jacks-up-price-of-uk-domains-further-increases-to-come–1309952


Nominet, the .UK domain registry, has recently announced that the wholesale price for all .UK domains (e.g. .uk, .co.uk, .org.uk and .me.uk) will change to £3.75 per year starting from 1st March 2016.

So why the sudden price increase for UK domains? Russell Haworth, Nominet CEO commented: “We’re committed to running a first class service for .UK registrants, including our renowned customer service, and we’re doing more than ever before to ensure the .UK space is a safe and trusted home for all. But costs have risen considerably since we last changed the price, and we need to compete in a promotion-driven industry.”

Domain Name Scams Going Strong

Domain Name Scams Going Strong.

The domain appraisal scam goes like this: someone says they’re interested in buying your domain name, and they think it’s worth a lot of money. But before they can go through with the purchase, you need you to get an appraisal from a specific service. Once they get a validation of the value, they promise to buy the domain name.

Icann predicts new gtlds will go dark in the future

Icann predicts new gtlds will go dark in the future

A security company led by a member of ICANN’s top security committee reckons that “hundreds” of new gTLDs are set to fail, leading to web sites “going dark”.

Internet Identity, which provides threat data services, made the prediction in a press release this week.

IID’s CTO, quoted in the release, is Rod Rasmussen. He’s a leading member of the Anti-Phishing Working Group, as well as a member of ICANN’s influential Security and Stability Advisory Committee.

He has a dim view of new gTLDs:
