I would need to join Uniregistry new Elite Membership (a higher level than $18-mo Pro) Domain Perks at an ongoing and high $22-month (to keep my old price level which had no monthly fees) to avoid Uni's 25% dot-com increase starting Nov 1. But why pay $22 mo when there will be some months with no renewals or registrations so the $22 is wasted. It's also wasted money unless you have a lot of active domains at Uni. Even if paying $22-mo would still be faced with high 28% future increases via Verisign because Uni domain perks appears to offer no protection from VZ increases. I can get a lower overall cost at Godaddy and benefit from major GD advantages like auctions, high traffic and great name recognition with end-users and the public.
