Subject: BrianC, please check your facts


I should point out that .web names will not cost $35 regardless of the registrar. Please check our application again. Our financial projections are based on the registry cost of $15. What the registrar charges is up to the registrar. The IOD registrar adds $20 and charges $35. Another registrar may add $15 and charge $30. Or add nothing and charge $15.

As with any free market, if the $15 registry cost is competitively too high, I suspect it would go down.

That, sir, is what competition is all about.

If you wish to discuss this, please do so in the area that ICANN has set aside for our application. Thank you.
