.ee domain price to drop to 9 euros
An .ee domain can be registered for one, two or three years. The domain name registration fee in 2015 will be 9, 17 or 24 euros depending on the length of the registration period.
According to Aet Rahe, chairman of the Foundation’s Supervisory Board, it is possible to cut the price thanks to the efficient functioning of the Foundation and the favourable market situation. “The Estonian Internet Foundation is implementing the strategy adopted in 2013; the activity of the Foundation is increasingly cost-effective and the number of registered .ee domain names is increasing year on year, last year by even as much as 9%. These factors have allowed us to bring the price of the service down,” said Rahe.
The prices are the domain name registration fees charged by the Estonian Internet Foundation from registrars, i.e. service providers. The amount of the registration fee to the registrant is established by the registrar. VAT is added to the fee.
The Estonian Internet Foundation (EIF) is thrilled to announce the participation of Helen Aaremäe-Saar, our esteemed lawyer and registrar coordinator, in the newly formed e-evidence expert group under the auspices of the European Commission. This expert group's mission is to harness collective knowledge and expertise in the creation of an all-encompassing IT system for the Union.
The Estonian Internet Foundation is making available domain names that have been kept in reserve for more than a decade. Many exclusive domains are now available – single character domain names and in addition various Estonian place names and country names.
The Estonian Internet Foundation (EIF) is bringing previously reserved and blocked .ee domains to the market. Last week, s.ee found a new owner for 41 000 euros, therefore being the most expensive domain auctioned by the EIF in history.
