Price will go up another $10 this month.
As the arms race for catching dropping domain names escalates, expired domain catcher Pheenix is raising its prices.
The company announced that the price of “gold” .com backorders will increase to $38.99 on January 15. That’s up from $28.99 right now and $21.99 about six months ago. “Super saver” backorders, which are usurped by any gold backorders, will now cost $20.99.
The new prices are still significantly less than Pheenix’s competitors. NameJet and SnapNames, which have combined efforts to chase deleting domains, charge $79. DropCatch, which recently added another 300 registrars to its coffers, charges $59 for standard backorders.
