Domain name renewal

I have had an email from PN to advise me that it will cost £52.88 to renew my .domain www.steelstrip.co.uk

I have had this domain name for 7 years through 3 different ISP's and it has never cost this much.

I emailed PN to check this a week ago. but no reply.

Can anyone tell me why it is so expensive?

Domain name renewal

Because PlusNet are an ISP, not a domain registration company and don't do a lot of domain registrations. As such they do not have the economies of scale that the high volume domain registration companies have or the discounts available so they charge what it actually costs them to renew a domain.

My recomendation is to move your domain administration to someone like 1and1 which only charge £1.99/year to renew a domain and just host it on PlusNet.
