The weaker rand has resulted in pricing increases in many products, with domain names the latest casualty.

Hetzner announced that its domain registration and renewal prices for all domain extensions – except co.za, org.za, and city TLDs – will increase.

“The price increase is necessary to accommodate exchange rate fluctuations,” said Hetzner.

.com domain name registration and renewal pricing increases from R129 to R189, while .net prices increase from R129 to R199.

The domain name price increases will take effect from April.
