Fees and billing routines

This page describes the fees that are charged by Norid and the payment terms.

Administration fee for new registrars

As a new registrar you pay an administration fee of NOK 5,000 to cover costs associated with the establishment and further administration of the registrar agreement.

Payment for domains

We charge a fee for new registrations, renewals and change of holder. Each time the registrar uses Norid’s registration service to submit a transaction which demands payment, the fee is deducted from the amount that is prepaid by the registrar. If the balance is too low to cover the transaction, it will be rejected.

  • New registrations and change of holder

    This is a one-time fee which covers our costs for processing the registration.

  • Renewal of domains

    The annual fee is a subscription fee which covers our running costs in connection with quality assurance, maintenance and development of the domain service. The annual fee for the first year is covered by the registration fee.

    Renewals are paid in advance of the renewal period by the registrar who renews the domain.

More about renewal of domains

Each registrar can check their own balance at any time and make premayments when necessary. Norid does not pay interests on prepayments.

Price changes

Two months notice is given for changes in prices.
