Verisign cutting prices; launching .COM exchange program for gTLD domain owners

Verisign means business.

Verisign announced today that they are drastically cutting the base pricing of .com domains, to a “couple of bucks.

No longer considering new gTLDs as competition or a viable threat to the core domain business, the registry behemoth broke the big news during a luncheon, to a group of reporters:

“We are witnessing a complete loss of trust in the new gTLD program, and it all has to do with the new business initiatives created by the President, Donald Trump,” said Verisign corporate propaganda officer, Franz Pfennig.

“Listening to anonymous folks on blogs, lashing out their true feelings via inane, profane and completely troll-infused feverish commentary, is what led us to that decision, and it’ll be rewarding for all domainers in the long run – trust me!” exclaimed Pfennig, raising a glass of champagne.

On top of cheap .com pricing that will last one day, there is a domain exchange program aimed at gTLD domain holders willing to make the switch.

According to the press release, owners of gTLD domains willing to delete them, will receive their choice of .COM or .NET; the exchange rate is as follows:

  • 1 .com for every 2 .online domains that get deleted
  • 1 .com or 2 .net for every 5 .sexy domains that get deleted
  • 1 com or 3 .net domains for every 25 .XYZ domains that get deleted

The new promotion goes live on the eve of April 2nd, and will only last one day.
