Evil Yahoo charging $35/y for domain name

evil-yahoo.jpgSince Microsoft‘s pull-off from the bid, Yahoo is acting evil. Increasing prices on services and trying to rip its customers. One of the ugliest move came from its Small Business Services. Yahoo is now charging $35/year for domain renewals. The worst thing is you wont even know about it.

Today I got an email from them notifying me of an upcoming renewal of one of my domains. I glanced through it and ignored the content for the first time . Then later I got another email for another domain, but this time I noticed the increased price of domain name renewals they have imposed. I strongly feel that $35/ year is too high for domain names and Yahoo must pull it back to $10.99 else they are to lose my kind of customers who owns 100s of domains and cant afford to pay $35/year for each.

I already started looking for options 1and1 sounds nice but need to research a little bit.

    I hope you will also consider GoDaddy.com – we are having a $6.99 .com transfer sale and new .com registrations are only $9.99/yr. We have a Transfer Concierge available to help you make your switch a success and our prices are guaranteed – your renewal rates will be no higher than what our registration rates were when you registered or transferred your domain name to us (unless the price the registry charges us increased, or if you took advantage of a limited-time, special price. If the registry increases our cost, yours will go up by no more than the same percentage ours did). We also are one of the few companies that offer 24/7 live customer support. Please visit our Transfer Concierge page for more details: https://www.godaddy.com/gdshop/transfers/concierge.asp?
