Bye bye 2 year registrations and renewals. Hello Multi year registrations ! However the pricing is a lil odd. From May 2012, the wholesale fee (for Nominet members) for a one-year registration will be £3.50 (+VAT), two years will stay the same at £5 (+VAT), with each additional year costing £2.50 (+VAT). So registering for 2 years will save ya 2 pounds and from then on you can opt for 1 year renewals.
Multi-year registration available from 1 May 2012
The current fixed 2-year registration period for .uk domain nameswill change from 1 May 2012 to offer flexible registrations from 1 to 10 years.
The new multi-year registration periods will offer greater choice for registrants, who can secure their domain for a longer term without worrying about regular renewals. It also gives registrars the opportunity to offer a more flexible package for .uk domain names.
