    Came to me in an email just a few minutes ago.

    I expect to see more from other registrars as well - just didn't expect this to be so quick.

    Dear Customer,

    Due to recent fluctuations in currency values and exchange rates we have reviewed our pricing across all currencies and wish to inform you we will be making some changes to our pricing.

    Where possible we have aimed to bring the benefit of these currency value changes to our customers (for example .co.uk domains will now be priced at 6.51 USD {previously 7.10 USD}) but there will be some domains which are now more expensive, particularly in the GBP and EUR currencies.

    A full list of the new pricing is attached to this email.

    As these market fluctuations are ongoing and unpredictable, we may be forced to make further changes at short notice in the coming weeks. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we attempt to limit the impact of these external forces.

    Thank you very much for you continued business, we hope that the changes are beneficial to your personal requirements.

    Yours truly,
    The Internet.bs team

    Pound is cheap.

    Soon to catch euro value :p

    haha

    Current:
    Euro/Usd:1.11
    Gbp/Usd 1:37 (todays low 1:31)
    Gbp is only 2000 pips away from current euro/usd rate.

    So many people losing their shit over this.

    Funny thing is I had a company trying to hand me a .uk, any .uk today.

    It is expected that as the value of a currency in one country goes down it will cost more to buy things from a foreign country and vice versa.

    If I were to pay GBP to buy something in USD today I would expect it to cost more than yesterday, not a great deal more but a little bit more.

    All of this is driven by fear right now, it will likely die down.

    I read that title totally wrong.

    I assumed by Internet BS you meant internet bullshit, not a registrar.
