As a current and longtime org domain holder, removing the caps on domain
name pricing is the equivalent of a bait and switch. Many organizations
have held these domain names for a very long time, creating a significant
impact due to having to switch. And as these domains are held
predominantly by nonprofits, what may seem like an insignificant cost to a
large corporation can be devastating. This puts them between a rock and
hard place - lose visibility and the resulting donors due to a domain
switch. Or incur potential significant additional costs.
And for what? Nothing has changed to increase the costs of the existing
contract holders. The existing 10% cap should more than accommodate any
growth in expenses on a per annum basis.
Consistency in policies is generally a good thing, but the legacy of the
initial domain TLD domain names clearly sets this apart.
Thank you for reading these comments.
