Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing in regard with the proposed Amendment 3 and it’s effect on the
internet as we know it. Nowadays many individuals, such as myself, own
their personal TLD .com for personal use or as online portfolios. The
reason I bought my .com domain was the low price and the advantages it
brings for me as a developer, allowing me to learn, by using this domain,
about the technology of sites, web protocols such as http and https, as
well as realizing the importance of Secure data transmission for any online
activity. Securing the data transmission without a domain is almost
impossible, as far as I know, so low prices for .com domains actually makes
the web a safer place for us, teaching the “young” ones that encryption and
secure data transmissions are not only easy to use but also mandatory in
the world we live in.
I ask you to not fulfill this Amendment as the increase in price will only
discourage individuals and small businesses , as corporations won’t have
any problem paying the increasing fees, but for a individual it will become
costly to own a domain. Also competition is the mother of invention so
allowing Verisign to operate as a domain registrar will likely create a
monopoly in the domain market and creating unfair commerce at the expense
of the public, who will have no choice but to pay the increasing fees or
move to another platform for their online presence, as individuals or
companies, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
I once again ask you to think twice and not Approve this Amendment as it
will hurt many individuals owning domains and it could even change the
internet as we know it.
Thank you for taking my point of view into consideration and I have faith
that you will make Right Choice.
Yours sincerely,
Teofil Ardelean
