Domain prices

Whenever you order a desired domain with us, we forward your registration request to the relevant domain registry. These domain registries then charge a registry fee for processing the domain registration request, and Hetzner Online transfers this registration fee to your account.


Traditional domain registries like DENIC and Verisign have established a stable pricing policy for top level domains like .de and .com. Other registries, however, have not done this, which has sometimes led in the past to substantial and disproportionate price increases. We at Hetzner Online have not always been able to ascertain the reasons behind these price hikes.


Here are a few examples of top level domains that have experienced volatile prices:

Unfortunately, we do not have any influence over registries' pricing policies, and must, therefore, pass on these price increases to you.


Of course, we at Hetzner Online will continue to offer to register and administer these domains for you; however we also believe that you should be aware of the volatile nature of these pricing policies.  With this knowledge, you can then decide if you will tolerate the price increases of said registries.


If you, like Hetzner Online, feel that you as a customer have the right to predictable prices, then you still have the option of choosing more traditional top level domains with stable prices like .de, .com, or others.
