Dear Sirs and Mams,
I am a .org registrant and a not-for-profit or non-profit organization.
It is too soon to include an untested policy on .org domains where for a
few hundred dollars anyone could try to shut down someone else's website.
Telling the .org registry that it can charge any price it wants for
renewing a domain name is a terrible idea. Why would you allow them to set
a crazy high price? They could try to force the domain owners to pay a very
high price each year to renew their domain name, and if the domain owner
either won't or can't, then the .org registry could take away their domain
name, set a high registration price on it, and then try to find someone
else who is willing to pay a high price for it. This is very unfair to long
time .org domain owners who may see their prices raised sky high for no
You let the new domain extensions charge any price they want, but that
hasn't gone so well. Lots of people got burned when the new registries
offered low rates for the first year, and then after people registered the
domain names and some built web sites on them, some of the prices were
raised through the roof. .Org has been working just fine for decades where
the prices maybe go up a little bit each year. Allowing huge price
increases from one year to the next could ruin .org for everybody.
Please consider what is good for the owners of .org domain names. The
registries are doing fine. They don't need your help as they are already
making plenty of money.
