I write to oppose the removal of price caps on any of the “legacy” TLDs as

doing so will only create a free-for-all on limitless price increases

across the well-established board. The new GTLDs are already accepted as

alternative options with price expectations that vary greatly based on the

registry; however, current registrants of older well established extensions

are expected to maintain some level of stability. These legacy domain

names, some of which have been registered for many years, are unlike the

new mess being created and owners of these legacy names have a reasonable

expectation of affordability and stability. The old manta goes ‘if it is

not broken, you do not try and fix it.’ The vast majority of domain owners

will remain unaffected so long as the fluctuating and exorbitant prices

remain in the newer name space; there will be plenty of years ahead for

ICANN to benefit from those while allowing stability within the legacy name

space. Leave well enough alone and move forward without effecting millions

and millions of current and well established registrants who expect their

domain expenses to remain reasonable, affordable and stable.
