Maintenance Alert

eNom (NeedName.com Partner) plans on conducting several network maintenances this week. These planned maintenances will not result in any interruption of reseller services. Details of the planned maintenances are below:

Monday 10/22: 6pm PST Network Maintenance
Wednesday 10/24: 6PM PST Network Maintenance
Thursday 10/25: 6PM PST Network Maintenance

Again, we do not expect any downtime associated with these scheduled maintenances. Rather, in an effort to over-communicate these planned upgrades to our Resellers, we wanted you to be aware of them. The work should last about 2 hours.

NeedName.com pricing tiers to be adjusted in response to ICANN-approved registry price increases on October 14, 2007

Note: This is a re-post from the old archive dated Sept.16, 2007.

Dear NeedName.com Customers,

In April 2007, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approved the applications of certain domain registries to increase their prices. Domain registries are the private companies which manage the registration, technical operations and control the allocation policies of the TLD's for which it is responsible.

Domain registries VeriSign, Afilias, Neulevel and Public Interest Registry applied for and received price increases and have announced they will be raising their wholesale prices to all ICANN-accredited registrars.

In light of that decision, NeedName.com (Enom Technology Partner) will be adjusting its customers pricing tiers on Sunday, October 14, 2007 as follows:
Retail Pricing:
From: $8.75 /year to $9:95 /year

Sub-Resellers:
PREMIER - From $6.95 /year to $7.45 /year
VOLUME - From $7.95 /year to $8.45 /year
BASIC - From $8.95 /year to $9.45 /year
