.ee domain price lowered from January 1
The Estonian Internet Foundation will lower the price of a .ee domain by 20% from 1 January 2014, i.e. down to €12.
.ee domains can be registered for one, two or three years. The domain fee is €12, €23 or €33 in 2014, depending on the length of the registration period.
These are the domain registration prices that the Estonian Internet Foundation will charge from registrars. The price for the registrant is determined by the registrars. VAT will be added to the fee.
From the beginning of January, protection with the DNSSEC security extension will be available for .ee domains. DNSSEC protects Internet users and domain owners, offering them a guarantee that the user has not been unknowingly redirected from the requested homepage to another page. The Estonian Internet Foundation will not apply additional charges to this service. More information about DNSSEC can be found on the Foundation's homepage at www.internet.ee.
.ee's website has been updated with new guidelines! You can information on EIS' Data Protection Policy here and domain search WHOIS Terms and Conditions here. Registrars can find .ee's Guidelines on processing of personal data here. Should you have any questions, please contact us by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling +372 727 1000.
.ee will update the Domain Regulation due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entering into force on the 25 May 2018. .ee Domain Regulation provides standard terms that regulate the legal relationship between the EIF, domain registrant and registrar (service provider). Main changes concern the WHOIS-service in which the contact information of a registrant who is a natural person can no longer be publicly disclosed.
The Estonian Internet Foundation has received multiple complaints from .ee domain registrants concerning the registration service provided by Beehosting OÜ, assuming that the company is an accredited .ee registrar. While third persons are not prohibited from selling .ee domains, the Foundation can only help users if the company concerned is an accredited .ee registrar.
