To Whom It May Concern,

I am appalled at your attempt to make significant changes to your 
contract with Verisign, Inc. in regards to .COM domains without 
consulting internet users or the ICANN community of domain registrars.

These changes would significantly increase wholesale prices in the 
future, which in turn would greatly affect customers like myself who 
rely on various domains to run a business. The Internet has become an 
integral aspect of modern life, which means that many people, like me, 
will renew their domains for many years to come. These proposed changes 
would make .COM domains less accessible and more expensive for everybody.

Furthermore, Verisign already controls almost 80% of the registrar 
pricing for domain names, so allowing it to operate its own registrar or 
as a reseller would compete directly with all domain registrars, 
maximizing its control of domain name pricing to the detriment of other 
registrars. Fewer registrars would harm competition, choice, and domain 
name services.

I strongly OPPOSE any changes to your contract with Verisign, and hope 
you will not ignore the unified outrage of the internet community, like 
you've done in the past, out of arrogance and greed.


Yol Swan
