The registry for .NET domain names is increasing their fees for all .NET domain name registrations, renewals, and transfers. Effective July 1, 2013, the registry fee for each annual increment of a new and/or renewal .NET domain name registration, and for each transfer of a .NET domain name registration from one ICANN-accredited registrar to another, will increase to $0.51.
