To whom it may concern,

I am concerned about the proposal to lift the price cap provisions for .org domains. As a manager of a non-profit I know that many non-profit organizations and NGOs use .org domain names. Organizations like mine have limited budgets and can do the most good when we are able to dedicate as much of our revenue and donations to our charitable cause. Removing the price cap provisions could result in increased domain name registration fees for charities which would limit the amount of good they can do for the public. I do not support removing the restrictions in place that limit price and allowable price increases for .org domains.

Pricing for Domain Name Registrations and Registry Services (Section 2.10 of the .org renewal agreement): In alignment with the base registry agreement, the price cap provisions in the current .org agreement, which limited the price of registrations and allowable price increases for registrations, are removed from the .org renewal agreement. Protections for existing registrants will remain in place, in line with the base registry agreement. This change will not only allow the .org renewal agreement to better conform with the base registry agreement, but also takes into consideration the maturation of the domain name market and the goal of treating the Registry Operator equitably with registry operators of new gTLDs and other legacy gTLDs utilizing the base registry agreement
