Hello everyone,

I'm new here, this is my first post.

I was wondering who is it that controls the prices for example .com?

The prices continue to go up!

Any thoughts?

Usually, it'd be the ICANN that controls all of the renewal fees and such. My go-to now is to just use CloudFlare as my registrar as they have pretty good rates. I'm paying 8.03USD/yr for my .com domains.

ICANN typically controls the base wholesale price for .com domain names. We have had quite a few clients make note of the recent increase but honestly it's a relatively small jump and, inflation is soaring in other sectors around the world, so i'm not surprised they have gone up.

ICANN does NOT control the price of domains. For SOME they may be involved in the approval of an increase in the price of a specific TLD e.g. the recent changes to the .com agreement.  On the whole, the wholesale price of domains is set and managed by their respective Registries.

For example

.com, that's Verisign
.org it's Public Interest Registry
.biz it's Neustar which is now owned by GoDaddy
*.co.uk it's Nominet

etc. etc.

The Registries then offer domains at wholesale to (ICANN accredited) Registrar such as GoDaddy, Namecheap, Name.copm etc. They in turn mark up the domains in line with their business needs.

If you're buying further down the line, via a reseller of an accredited Registrar, then you will most likely pay more.

Every domain sale also includes a small fee that a Regisitry and Registrar must pass on to ICANN.

You do not need any such registration to become a registrar to sell, for instance, Nominet's offerings nor the offerings of most ccTLD registries. Each registry appoints registrars according to its own rules.

I believe the question was who controls the price. Hence my reply.
Re: ccTLDS, no you do no need to be ICANN accredited. And they of course set the price + you generally one has to pay a deposit to become accredited directly with them.
