As a small-business owner who uses a .com domain for my business website, I am concerned about the provisions of this proposed amendment.

Firstly, the potential of price increases in the future may be prohibitive for my business to retain my .COM domain. If I needed to change my domain, that will negatively impact the web presence of my business which may greatly affect my business health overall. Please consider that many small-business owners like myself rely on our websites to introduce our businesses to customers, and many businesses (especially those that rely on internet traffic) may not be able to afford to maintain a .COM domain with the proposed changes.

Secondly, I am concerned about the following provision “The proposed LOI also provides that Verisign will contribute U.S. $20 million dollars over five years.” There is no explanation for how ICANN will spend the money, or who will ensure that the funds will be spent properly.

I hope ICANN will take these and other public comments into consideration.
