Am against any price increase for .COM domains.

For the following reasons;

First, the proposed changes are repressive and oppressive especially coming in an era where internet has become a driving force for the next industrial revolution.

All stakeholders should first and foremost be consulted including us and our opinions taken into consideration. We all thought and are of the opinion that .COM domain prices should remain relatively available and cheap as this makes it more competitive. Comparing it with .NET and .ORG, these TLDs are very competitive and are used by great brands including me. Increasing the price of one will force the prices of the others to go up and this will make it more expensive to invest in internet by users and the public.

As a developer and operating an IT company dealing with hosting, domains etc, this will hurt and affect our business negatively. It’s better and has always worked when there’s bulk selling rather than just making a few sales with expensive prices.

Since your target market is business, give them and us the opportunity to keep our expenses low. Raising the price will not only increase our expenses but will adversely affect the buying of .COM domains and in turn the money you are seeking to raise will be NOT be found.

People will seek alternatives and will definitely leave .COM to those who can afford which will not have served your purpose and vision for both ICANN and Verisign.

Stop harming the internet both us and the users. We kindly ask you to forego the agreement and let the internet and .COM remain accessible and easier for all of us. Am sure, ICANN can raise that money through other means including donors and voluntary contributions rather than targeting THE MOST IMPORTANT AND USED .COM DOMAIN. There are so many other cctlds and gltds that ICANN can look into raising that amount of money.
