站长之家（）4月22日消息：国外专业的域名注册商，从今日起，将对所有新注册的域名，取消提供免费的Private Whois。原有的免费服务，改为收费服务，需要提供Private Whois的用户，需要额外交$1.99。针对已经注册的用户，免费Private Whois会到当年合同结束期取消。
Hi folks. always strives to offer the lowest price on all our products and up until today weve been able to offer Private Whois for free for a long time. These types of posts are never fun， and no one enjoys raising prices， but sometimes it becomes necessary so we can continue to offer these great services.
While some registrars charge as much as eight or nine dollars per domain for this service， our new promotional price， starting today， is only $1.99 per domain annually. This means we are still offering some of the best pricing for this service anywhere. We realize that changes like this can impact our customers plans and budgets， so weve taken some proactive steps that we feel will help to curb the impact of this new change. Those actions are：
All domains that currently have Private Whois already turned on will continue to receive it for free.
The new pricing will begin today and will only apply to domains that dont already have Private Whois enabled and/or new domain registrations.
We are running a promotional price of just $1.99/domain per year， which is one of the lowest prices available.
Weve created a promo code called FREEWHOIS that will discount the current special pricing of $1.99 to $0.00， making this service free for the first year for orders using this promo code.
Beyond that， we will continue to offer promotions for discounted domains， so keep an eye on this blog and our Twitter and Facebook pages for promo codes.
We hope our customers understand this was a difficult decision for us to make， but that weve tried to soften the impact as much as possible. As always if you have any questions or concerns， please dont hesitate to contact our support department or your account representative.
