Dear ICANN board,
The thought of allowing PIR to set any price they desire for domain names in the .org domain is a disastrous decision to even consider. Frankly, it goes against the very nature of even having a .org domain:
"Your organisation inspires people to make a difference, but getting the word out isn’t always easy. That’s why the .org domain has been a haven for nonprofits and do-good organisations for decades. It has helped reshape the online world by advancing causes, creating opportunities, and making our communities more open and collaborative.” (https://pir.org/products/org-domain/ <https://pir.org/products/org-domain/>)
The very organizations that rely upon the .org domain to “make a difference” and help “reshape the online world” would be most impacted by any sudden price increase and least likely to be able to afford it. I hope you will reconsider this move and allow non-profits like AZTESOL to continue to be able to afford hosting a website. Allowing limitless annual price increases would surely negatively affect the ability of countless non-profit and do-good organizations like ours to get the word out and advance our causes. Thank you!
Jeremy J. Lee
