NeedName.com pricing tiers to be adjusted in response to ICANN-approved registry price increases on October 14, 2007

Note: This is a re-post from the old archive dated Sept.16, 2007.

Dear NeedName.com Customers,

In April 2007, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approved the applications of certain domain registries to increase their prices. Domain registries are the private companies which manage the registration, technical operations and control the allocation policies of the TLD's for which it is responsible.

Domain registries VeriSign, Afilias, Neulevel and Public Interest Registry applied for and received price increases and have announced they will be raising their wholesale prices to all ICANN-accredited registrars.

In light of that decision, NeedName.com (Enom Technology Partner) will be adjusting its customers pricing tiers on Sunday, October 14, 2007 as follows:
Retail Pricing:
From: $8.75 /year to $9:95 /year

PREMIER - From $6.95 /year to $7.45 /year
VOLUME - From $7.95 /year to $8.45 /year
BASIC - From $8.95 /year to $9.45 /year
ALTERNATIVE - From $9.95 /year to $10.45 /year


Which TLDs are affected by the new pricing tiers?
Those TLDs which are governed by your current pricing tier (Premier, Volume, Basic, Alternative) which are .com, .net, .org, .info .biz, .us and .name.When will the new pricing begin? Customers and sub-resellers accounts will be reconfigured starting on Sunday, October 14, 2007 which will allow us to coordinate this effort in parallel with the domain name registries.

Will NeedName.com change the pricing I set for my customers and subaccounts?
No. It is the SubAccount's responsibility to update their customers' pricing including the following customer types: Any Sub-accounts or subresellers, Direct retail customers and RegistryRocket customers. These pricing changes must be made by NeedName.com (Enom Technology Partner) resellers on or before October 14, 2007.

Historically NeedName (Enom Technology Partner) has been averse to adjusting its prices. As these cost increases are being dictated and charged to us by the registries, we are obligated to comply. We have posted a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the revisions of our ETP tiers, as well as the specific TLD's to which the new pricing will apply on our website.

Be assured that NeedName.com (Enom Technology Partner) will continue to keep its customers and sub-resellers on the cutting edge of domain and web services technology, strive to offer the most responsive level of customer service 24X7, and maintain the high level of services.

On behalf of everyone at NeedName.com (ENom Technology Partner), please accept my sincere thanks and appreciation for the opportunity to serve you as a valued customers.
