Exclamation Domain owners need to take immediate action !!!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.dnjournal.com/lowdown.htm

Domain owners need to take immediate action if they want to lodge objections to approval of proposed new contract extensions for the .biz, .info and .org registries. George Kirikos discovered that the current proposals leave the door open for the registries to adopt the kind of variable pricing model used by the .TV registry. This means those registries could start charging thousands of dollars a year to renew domains people have already developed and turned into valuable businesses. Kirikos detailed the situation in a post at the DomainState forum. ICANN is currently allowing public comment on the agreements but that will end Monday (August 28) at 5pm U.S. Pacific time. Frank Schilling of Name Administration, Inc. has already posted a compelling statement that lays out the danger the agreements pose to domain registrants and developers.

Yes this is important.

Read the domainstate thread that genius posted to understand what this could mean in the future .

Does this affect .com and .net?

If this kind of ransom is allowed, the resale market for .org, .info, and .biz will be gone.

If these registries go down this route it will just assure the dominance of IDN.com.

ICANN has drawn this to the public attention to take the sting out their negociations with Verisign over dot Com.

A relaxation of the dot Com contract cannot happen without ICANN approval.

I think ICANN may also be signalling that there will have to be some Quid Pro Quo in order to have these loopholes tightened. Bigger fixed fee instead of long-term uncertainty.

Pardon my ignorance in TLD governance, do you mean only .com is controlled by ICANN, and the rest like .net, .org, .info and .biz have got not price controls? In other words, just like .TV?

dude, read the thread

IDN.com is .com, so if this is appoved and other registries eventually go this route, IDN could be affected.


The issue is not higher general reg fees, but tiered-domain pricing.

Let the ASCII mob worry about this. It will affect them first and their margin will be much tighter than ours!

Well, I am not. Verisign is locked in with a graduated fee basis for a long-time on dot com. The shit will hit the fan well before I am affected, and if corporate America is held to ransom over fees for it dot coms, you may rest assured there will be a massive class action. Besides there won't be a Bush in the Whitehouse by then!
