    Next month (Oct.) it will cost you more to register a domain name.
    I just got a letter from my registrar saying this is industry wide.

    Be aware, folks.

    if you have only one domain then it's no big deal.
    but if you have several then it's going to add up.

    i have three domains so i'm not too worried.
    some people have dozens of domains, and they
    are going to feel the pinch.
