Uniregistry price increases (August 1)


Registry operator Uniregistry will increase the prices of 16 TLDs, in some cases by extremely significant amounts (effective as of August 1). We are far from pleased with these changes, because we feel that this type of increase has the potential to negatively impact consumer trust in new gTLDs.

Affected TLDs
With new selling prices of $100 or less, the price hike will have the smallest impact on the following 7 domain name extensions:

  • .click
  • .link
  • .help
  • .pics
  • .sexy
  • .christmas
  • .tattoo

The 9 TLDs below are hit hardest: these domain extensions will cost well over $100. In some cases, this means a price increase of up to 3,000%.

  • .audio
  • .juegos
  • .diet
  • .hiphop
  • .flowers
  • .guitars
  • .hosting
  • .property
  • .blackfriday

Several registrars have decided to partially discontinue support for these TLDs or even drop Uniregistry domains altogether. We have decided to leave it up to you whether you want to continue selling these TLDs after the price increases come into effect.

Recommended actions
We strongly recommend that you inform your customers about the upcoming changes as soon as possible, so they aren’t taken by surprise. You can also offer your customers the option to renew their domains at current prices for up to 10 years.

Please visit our domains page to see the new prices.

.info, .ru, .рф , and .top price increases (July 1)


The registries managing .info, .ru, .рф, and .top have announced that they will increase the prices of these TLDs starting July 1, 2017. Consequently, Resello has to raise the prices of these TLDs as well. Also, the currency used for .top domains will change from United States Dollar (USD) to Chinese Yuan Renminbi (CNY) starting July 1.

Take a stand against ransomware with Acronis Backup Cloud


What once was a relatively obscure malware threat recently became a full-blown global pandemic. The immediate cause: WannaCry ransomware exploding through 150 countries. If the threat of ransomware wasn’t on your customers’ radar before, it definitely is now!

An effective answer to ransomware
Now is the time to educate your customers that there is only one foolproof ransomware defense: a meticulous backup regimen with file encryption.

And now for the good news: Acronis Backup Cloud offers exactly that and more!

A golden opportunity for service providers
Whether you are a managed service provider, a cloud service provider, or a value added reseller interested in joining the cloud service market, ransomware protection represents an enormous business opportunity.

Press release: Realtime Register first Dutch registrar with accreditation for .RU and .PФ domains

  • Zwolle, September 2015 Realtime Register, an ICANN accredited domain names registrar and hosting services supplier, is the first Dutch registrar with accreditation by TCI, the Russian registry. This means Realtime Register can register .RU and .PФ domain names directly at TCI. With the accreditation, Realtime Register helps local Russian companies, and organizations with ambitions in Russia, to grow online. Because of Realtime Register’s direct relation with the .RU registry, domain names can be registered quickly, without any additional validation requirements.

    Only 31 registrars worldwide received accreditation for.RU and .PФ domains. This while Russia, with 146 million inhabitants, offers enormous entrepreneurial possibilities. Berend van Dalfzen, Managing Director at Realtime Register: “Companies looking to be accredited need to go through an intensive process. It took us a while to meet all the demands. Besides offering Russian language support by phone, we were required to set up a local office, so people would have a physical place to come to for help.”

    Moscow office
    Realtime Register opened a branch office in Moscow, with Russian staff. “Our Russian employees assisted us a great deal in the accreditation process. All documents were written in Russian, so it was very convenient to have native Russian people in our own organization, who could translate the information for their Dutch colleagues”, says Van Dalfzen.

    Russian resellers for .RU and .PФ domains
    With the accreditation, Realtime Register offers local and international organizations a chance to do business on the Russian market with .RU or .PФ domains. Through sister company Resello, Russian resellers can market domain name registrations, hosting services, and related products, at very attractive rates.

    Van Dalfzen: “Our ambitions are big, and so are the opportunities. Russia is one of the biggest economies worldwide. If you want to succeed there and in the adjacent countries, it’s essential to have a local platform. On the other hand, we also like to help (starting) Russian companies entering international online markets. By giving local resellers attractive offers through Resello, we create a vantage point for growth in Russia, and we can leverage our accreditation.”

    Interested in reselling .RU and .PФ domains? Please contact our sales department.

.CO domains for $5.99

  • Our most notable TLD for this month is .CO. To celebrate their five year anniversary, .CO lowered their prices to $5.55 throughout July. But it doesn't end there. Per 1 August, Resello will exclusively offer .CO for only $5.99 through our Domain Growth Program!

Our .RU/Pф accreditation, your benefit

  • Many international businesses are looking to set foot and get a share in one of the world's largest economies, with over 146 million Russian people. Our registrar department, Realtime Register, is now one of the happy few with accreditation from the Russian .RU registry! This means we can offer you the most competitive pricing, best and fastest support, and real-time .RU registrations.

    Most competitive pricing
    As there are no other parties between the .RU registry and us, we can get significantly sharper prices for you, with savings up to 90%! Being one of the largest registrars in the world, we offer great prices for other cc-TLDs and gTLDs as well. Check out our domain page, and our unique Domain Growth Program.

    No currency risk
    Our prices are listed in the registries currency, and will be converted into the currency of your deposit whenever there is a transaction. So .RU domains are listed in rubles, without the risk of fluctuating exchange rates. If you have your own ruble account, there is no exchange risk at all.

    Real-time registration and no paperwork
    Due to our direct line into the registry, we can now offer superfast registration. All registrations are processed in real-time. Registrants are often required to send in ID documents, prior to registration of the .RU domain. Not with us. In 99% of the cases, no extra validation will be requested. Updating name servers has never been faster and easier.

    Easy upsells
    With features as our convenient Slimsite website builder, our hosted OX app suite, and our wide range of SSL certificates, Resello is your best choice for entering the Russian market.

    Russian support
    As goes for all our customers, we want to offer our Russian customers top quality support, too. We have therefore opened an office in Moscow, and installed a fully trained, native Russian-speaking support team.
