Hello,

OVH previously chose not to increase domain name prices despite the registries increasing prices in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and again in 2015. This is why domain name prices have stayed the same for the last few years, despite all these increases.

At the same time, the majority of registries (our domain name providers, such as Verisign, PIR, Afilias for the .com .org .info extensions) charge us in dollars. As you know, recently the euro has dropped against the dollar, significantly increasing the cost price for domain names.

For these 2 reasons, we’re forced to revise our domain name prices and reposition them in view of our actual 2015 cost prices. Prices on the www.ovh.com website will be updated throughout the day.

The price changes will come into force for new domain names and domain name transfers on 23/04/2015. For renewals, this will happen within one month, in compliance with the contract, on 23/05/2015. Therefore if you wish to renew your domain name and pay the “old” price, you still can for the next month.

Domain name reseller packages
------------------------------------------------------------
OVH would like to take this as an opportunity to launch a domain name reseller package* with the lowest prices on the market! You won’t be able to find lower prices anywhere else! Impossible! Why? Domain name prices are calculated every day, at midday, based on our cost prices and the euro/dollar exchange rate. You will therefore get the same prices as those proposed by the registries!

To take advantage of the domain name reseller package, you will need to sign up as a Web Community Partner, which will cost €600 excl. VAT (or £600 excl. VAT), the equivalent of €50 excl. VAT/month (or £50 excl. VAT/month).

We’ve done the calculations for you: if you have more than 200 domain names, it’s totally worth your while to be part of the partner community, regardless of your domain name extensions. Once you’re a Web Partner, you will be able to get the domain name reseller package and also our future web hosting reseller offers, Exchange and SSL, which will be released in July. Also, in order to simplify and speed up the management of many domain names, we’re setting up a new order system on the website and on API v6, and improving ManagerV6.

Being a Web Partner doesn’t give you the right to access the Telecom programme (FR only), and vice-versa. Every universe has its own partner programme and Customer Advocate teams. We’ve focused on the quality of the customer service that we want to offer you as part of our partner programmes, so we can offer both price and quality.

Best,
Octave

*Coming to subsidiaries soon.
