Pricing changes from 9 April 2020.

Update 6 April 2020

Due to the unprecedented situation of COVID-19, InternetNZ (who sell domain names to Registrars like 1st Domains) has made the decision to delay their scheduled price increase of wholesale fees for domain names until 1 October 2020.

As we have always done in the past, we will be passing on this supplier saving to customers in full. We had already published a notification of new .nz and .com domain name price changes which are effective from 9 April. In light of the supplier change, those prices will be reduced by $3, until 1 October 2020, across all volume pricing tiers.

Please see the below for updated pricing structure and schedule.

We would like to inform you that, effective 9 April 2020, we will be increasing the price of our .nz (includes .co.nz, .org.nz etc) and .com domain names and email plans, and updating our volume tier pricing structure.

Factors driving price changes:

Voyager and 1st Domains has been notified by InternetNZ (who sell domain names to Registrars like 1st Domains) that they are increasing the wholesale fees for domain names (now effective 1 October). We expect that most Registrars in the industry are likely to pass on this increase to customers.

In addition to price increases from our suppliers, we have faced increased operational costs and made significant investments in our infrastructure over the years. We will take this opportunity to factor these changes into new pricing to ensure we continue to offer a premium level of service and support.

We have attempted to keep our new pricing as low as possible and well below the current market average price of $41.42. This is notably the first price increase in 17 years, since 1st Domains started business in 2003 and historically, we have saved our customers fees by lowering our prices to pass on all wholesale fee decreases.
