Price increase for .si domain names

At .si registry we have long resisted price increases for domain registration and renewal. From 2005 to 2015 the price for registration and renewal was 10 EUR, and from 2015 onwards it was 8 EUR.

In these 17 years, has been given a number of new obligations imposed by legislation, and with the adoption of the Directive on security of network and information systems (NIS2), another wave of new obligations await us.

Throughout the years, we have risen to the challenges that every modern registry is facing, developing new software to ensure that .si is even more secure and reliable. Despite the fact that the number of employees has grown to 12 over the years, we are still one of the smallest registries in Europe. Like everyone, is facing price increases for services that are essential for our operation. Many TLDs (including .com) have already increased their prices in recent years. The price of a .si domain is therefore very low compared to other registries, taking into account the size of the .si zone.

As of 1 January 2023, we are therefore returning the registration price to 2015. The price for registering and renewing a .si domain will be 10 EUR.

In 2023, the Registry will promote incentives for Registrars to reduce the price of registration and/or renewal. Incentives will be mainly related to increasing the security of .si domains and verifying the data of domain holders.
