Zerigo announced this morning they are replacing their $39/year DNS Essentials plan with a $63/month plan, effective January 31, 2014.

That’s a month’s notice for a 1,800 % price increase.

But the worst part is, the annual plans are pre-paid, yet they will not grandfather existing annual plans through the end of the term… they are terminating pre-paid plans mid-way, and replacing them with a drastically-higher price plan.

Here’s the rub: due to infrastructure enhancements the new price actually is probably okay. But I would never remain with a provider who breaks their deal in that manner. They absolutely should have grandfathered existing plans through to completion.

UPDATE: painlessly migrated to Amazon Route53.
