How do you calculate the domain pricing overpayment?
- 24 February 2010 – Article 19A purportedly changed by Special Resolution using Weighted Voting, so that the power to change domain name prices moved from members to the board. If weighted voting breaks the law, then this change is likely void. So the ability to change domain name prices would never have moved from the membership and changes to prices made by the board would be invalid.
- 1st March 2016 – Base wholesale .uk price raised from £2.50 to £3.75 a year.
£1.25 rise per multi year or a 50% increase.
- 13th January 2020 – Base wholesale .uk price raised from £3.75 to £3.90 a year.
£1.40 total rise per multi year.
Over this timeframe, average number of .uk domains was around 11.1 million a year.
11.1 million domains times £1.40 = £15,540,000
Three years at that rate = £46,620,000
11.1 million domains times £1.25 = £13,875,000
Three year at that rate = £41,625,000
Total Overpayment in Past Six Years = £88,245,000
Ongoing Annual Overpayment = £15,540,000
Estimate Your Own Overpayment
Multiply your domains under management by £1.33
Then multiply by either 6 years or your length of membership
Your ongoing annual overpayment would be your Domains Under Management times £1.33
