we are a small company in India, hosting around 11 dedicated servers since
most domains are naturally .com domains.
we have booked domains in the begining at 35 usd per year and as years
in the begining a cost of 35 usd may possibly be justified since internet
was still young and the numbers small, competition very low causing the
costs to be high
however today when practically the business is booming globally and internet
presence is increasing by leaps and bounds the costs should be actually be
coming down by 7 percent every year rather than increasing.
domain names are just a virtual entry and does not need any tangible
material to manufacture.

internet community not just verisign and its stock holders
it is not that i cannot afford or my clients cannot afford to pay 20 usd per
domain in 7 years time --- but the point is that why should we let a bunch
of selfish people be allowed to fleece the rest of the world through
If verisign finds that it is not able to handle the registry then let it
give it up. there are a lot many more people globally who can handle the
same in a far better way
We register our strong protest against this proposed sigining of agreeement
between verisgin and ICANN which seems to be solely intended to enrich a few
selfish individuals at the cost of the rest of global internet community.
