Romanian domainers seek blood as .RO annual fees about to change

Romania is famous for its beautiful, callipygous women.

In the country made famous by Vlad the Impaler, inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, there is at least one thing surprisingly progressive: in Romania, domain registrations carry no annual fee.

Twenty-four years since the Romanian Revolution of 1989, there are fears that a change in this extraordinary policy might cause the registrants of 700,000 .RO domains to seek blood.

Surprisingly, the registration of .RO domain names is currently an one-time fee of 50 EUR plus VAT.

According to the government institute, any change to this policy will deliver notifications to the holders of .RO domains.

Which might happen soon, according to Romania Insider, which states that the government wants to raise more annual revenue and plans to start charging for .RO domain names:

“The authorities, via the The National Institute for Research & Development in Informatics (ICI), which manages and sells the .ro domains, need to get more revenues to cover maintenance costs, data security costs, as well as database management costs.”

We are surprised that such an exceptional policy has been in place; clearly the last bastion of Communism in technology is about to fall, and Capitalism will take its place. 😀
