[Comments-com-amendment-3-03jan20] Higher barrier to entry is bad for the internet

I admit the price of domain names has remained relatively cheap since they
were opened up to individuals many years ago. However, I believe that
increasing the price of domain names makes the barrier to entry too high
and cause harm to the internet as a whole over the next 10 years. With more
people turning to “free” services instead of creating their own Web
presence, they will be more beholden to the interests of the companies who
build these networks on top of the Web. This will continue to give more
power to companies who will increasingly dictate what is shared and with
whom.

Please keep domains affordable for all so the Web itself can continue to
flourish.
