Sirs / Ma'ams,

I write in opposition to the proposed increases in pricing for .com 
domains, for the following reasons:

I don't particularly like the idea of paying $1 per month for my website 
to a multi-billion dollar company so they can make their wealthy 
investors a little richer.

Verisign, Inc. is a commercial for profit publicly traded company, whose 
motives are driven by a desire to increase profits for investors, not to 
serve the public interest. Verisign had a gross profit of over 1,000 
million dollars (1 billion) in 2019. Considering there are about 
200,000,000 active websites of all kinds world wide, and only a small 
portion of them are profit making dot com websites. Verisign already 
makes a massive amount of profit from their relationships with 
governments and organizations like ICANN.

If ICANN needs more money to operate you all can get it from Verisign, 
they can probably spare a few million from what I understand.

In disgust,

Lewis Beeler
