.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.

.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.
