Dear ICANN,

I am strongly opposed to the proposed price increase for .com domains.
Prices should be reduced, not increased. Please put the .com registry
management out to bid and let the lowest bid win! I've heard many estimates
as low as $2 to $3 per domain for the actual cost of running the .com
registry. Lowering prices for legacy extensions is the direction that ICANN
should be going.

The switching costs to move domains to an alternative like .xyz are too
high in terms of marketing, branding, SEO, physical signs, etc, so I am
captive to using .com, as are tens of millions of other people. ICANN
should manage .com for the public good, not for the benefit of Verisign.

So please do not permit price increases!

Thank you,
Steven Kennedy
