Domain Price Increases - 20th October 2021

13 October 2021, in Domain Registration

We have been notified today that Donuts will be increasing their wholesale pricing on a number of their nTLD's by $1.70 on the 20th October 2021.

We will need to raise our prices on the following Donuts nTLD's by a similar amount on the 20th October 2021.


Domain Price Increases - 15th February 2021

03 February 2021, in Domain Registration

Due to increased wholesale pricing for Domain Registrations and the continued low value of the UK Pound against the US Dollar we will be increasing the pricing on specific domain name registrations/renewals by between 1 and 2 per year.

While price increases are not welcome news, we have kept the increases as low as possible to cover price increases in providing the domain registrations while still being up to 40% less than other leading UK domain registrars*.

The following price increases for domain registration and renewals will come in to effect on the 15th of February 2021.

.co.uk - 6.95 /yr
.uk - 6.95 /yr
.org.uk - 6.95 /yr
.me.uk - 6.95 /yr
.com - 11.95 /yr
.net - 12.45 /yr
.org - 12.45 /yr

If you receive an email notification for any auto-renewals for domains before the 15th of February, these will still go through at the previous rate.

* 123-Reg - .CO.UK standard registration/renewal price of 11.99 as of February 2021

Data Centre Fibre Outage

11 August 2020, in Network, Data Centre, Domain Registration, Shared Hosting, Cloud Servers, Dedicated Servers, Colocation Services

One of the fibre circuits to our Bournemouth Data Centre has loss connectivity. This has been raised with our upstream provider who are investigating the issue.

Traffic that would have been carried over the circuit has automatically rerouted, but we are having reports that a small number of customers are not able to reach our network at this time.

Loss of Connectivity
We have received reports from some customers that they were unable to connect to our network and we observed a 25% drop in traffic levels.  

The issue has been traced to routing problem with an upstream provider that only became apparent due to the fibre connectivity issue and has now been resolved.

The upstream provider has assured us they will be fully investigating and adding additional motoring to ensure the issue does not occur again. 

We would like to apologise to any customers affected.

Updated 19:48
Virgin Media are presently investigating the loss of connectivity with one of our fibres. Traffic to our network has been routed via a secondary fibre.  There is no impact to service at this time, however service should be considered at risk due to the loss of resilience.

Update 22:01
We have received an update that the fibre circuit issue is caused by a power outage at Virgin Media's local exchange which they suspect is due to the heatwave. 

Update 12th August 08:55
The Virgin Media Fibre Circuit has been stable since 21:41 last night. Currently we are not routing traffic over the circuit as we wish to continue to monitor. There is no impact to service at this time.

Update 14:45
Virgin Media have confirmed they have mitigated the problem and we have observed a stable connection on the fibre since 21:41 yesterday. Traffic is now being routed over the effected fibre circuit and our service is back to full resilience.  

We would like to apologise to any customers affected.

Afilias and Nominet Domain Price Increases

We have just been informed that Afilias and Nominet are increasing their prices in January 2020.
