Once the earning start to kick in most people on here will not be too concerned about renewal cost. I see some of the major players in the ASCII market are very concerned about their renewal costs. Well if I had regged a bunch of crap like they are carrying then I would be too. If you are only looking to make about 30 to 50% above reg fee every year to provide what seems an excellent return on capital investment, the smallest of price hikes will do an awful lot of damage. Once IE 7.0 kicks in many our domains will be paid for by January 2nd.

Re: Should we be worried?

This would definitely affect the domain market, if you have 2000 domains, a 2$ hike means additional $4000 a year in registration fee. One can do a lot of things with this $4000 extra expense.

Re: Should we be worried?

You should be worried by this simple fact. The Internet is a global resource and the entire story is about America. We have VeriSign, an American company, plus ICANN, an American organization, plus the American department of Commerce...

Yes, well America is due for a rather brusque wake up call! They are on borrowed time and the World is running out of patience.
