VeriSign has raised the registration fee for domain names ending in .com and .net for the second time since the company took control of the top-level domains in 2006.

The security vendor said Thursday that the registry fee for .com would increase to $6.86 from $6.42, and the fee for .net would increase to $4.23 from $3.85. The increases are expected to take effect on Oct. 1, and are in line with VeriSign's agreement with ICANN, the U.S. organization in charge of managing the assignment of domain names and IP addresses, the company said.

In justifying the increase, VeriSign said traffic volume continues to increase with the emergence of consumer-driven services, the soaring number of Web-connected wireless devices, and the proliferation of technologies and services using the Domain Name System. The company says it processes a peak of more than 33 billion DNS queries per day, under normal traffic conditions.
