Wow. That blows.

They're going to be facing a massive number of drops from portfolios that exist only to produce revenue slightly better than reg fee + risk free rate.

Re: Verisign to raise registration fees on .com and .net

Are you guys gonna be surprised every year?

The deal was a 7% increase for 5 out of 7 years. For the other 2 years they can ask ICANN for approval if they can demonstrate good reason why they need to increase rates. My memory's a bit rusty but I think that was the deal.

So -DUH- it follows that we get five straight years of 7% increases, followed by 2 years of contentious, and perhaps smaller increases.

Yep, and even in dollars that is going to be an real reduction in cost, as inflation in the States is set to be way more than 7%. For the rest of us it is going to mean cheaper registrations locked in every year. Well done Verisign.

Screwed by Verisign with assistance from ICANN.

Bring on that RICO suit.

How else did you expect ICANN to get the budget to promote all the new IDN TLD namespaces?

You should watch the last CSI Miami episode i seen. The guy was doing some target practicing in his front yard. The neighbor came out front and started to complain about the gun fire and the guy fired 1 shot in the air and it came down and you can figuire out the rest.

Well unless you are paid in Fed IOUs, then they dropped substantially last year!
