While toomakesense conducted further research about Namecheap sudden price increase in domain names we found out it is not there will to increase the listed domain prices as the situation is beyond there control. (See reasons below)
Read from them:
ICANN’s current contract with Public Interest Registry (PIR), the group that runs the .org domain name, allows PIR to increase the wholesale price of .org domains by 10% a year. Now ICANN is proposing extending the contract to operate .org but letting PIR set whatever prices it wants.
But the good news is, you can help avoid the domain price increase.
