I'm concerned about the proposed increase in .COM registration fees.  There
are approximately 144 million domains registered in the .COM TLD.  At the
current rate of $7.85, this means that Verisign is already raking in $1.13
billion a year just for issuing domain names.  Given the infrastructure
required to maintain such a system, this is tantamount to printing money.
While domain registration is a relatively small cost in the grand scheme of
things, it already has plenty of profit built in, and frankly, given the
improvements in infrastructure over the past eight years, the price of a
.COM registration should be less, not more, than it was in 2012.
