The time has come to change domains. Please update your bookmarks and feed readers soon, as the domain expires mid July, 2013.
Keeping an eye on the .tc pricing debacle over the last year, it has become clear that the
.tc TLD should be thrown into a pile close to the pile that
.ly currently lives in (Read: you should not trust the
.tc domain unless you have very specific reasons to do so).
My prior domain, bre.tc, which was originally bought and registered for a year somewhere around the price of $40-50, would cost me $119 to renew through my preferred registrar Iwantmyname. This is simply unaffordable.
It turns out that the new TLD registrar for .tc, Meridian TLD, is very clearly strong-arming domain owners to transfer their domains to the companies in house domain service and renew for a year for the cost of $40, with a yearly rate of $70 thereafter. More can be read about this untrustworthy TLD on the iwantmyname.com blog.
