    Totally agree that the price increase isn't great. It's certainty not something I'd worry too much about.

    The angry smiley in the title led me to believe it would be a price increase of 100% or something. Instead it's just a few cents. No big deal.

    But when you have 2,000 domains ... it all adds up.

    I don't think its related to new extensions. Its probably just because of inflation. If they want to promote new extensions, they should offer some really discounted prices like on .info :D
