Prices for .makeup domains are skyrocketing again.
Last year I wrote a post titled “Want a .makeup domain? It will soon cost over $5,000 per year.”
L’Oreal, which operates the .makeup top level domain, was getting ready to raise prices that were about $300 a year to a retail price of over $5,000.
But why stop there? It looks like it’s hiking its prices about 100% this year, so you should expect to pay $10,000+ retail to register .makeup domain names beginning September 6.
The good news? Existing domain name registrations are grandfathered in. So if you grabbed one of these domains early, you don’t have to pay the new higher prices.
There are about 250 registered .makeup domain names. Don’t expect that to increase anytime soon.
