I have owned two .org domain names since 2016 for a non-profit
organization.  I've maintained these personally during that timeframe
because they are an organization that I volunteer with extensively and I
know they can't afford additional vanities like this.  However, in 2019 it
is impossible to do non-profit work without having a domain name and e-mail
addresses that match and are professional to work with our other volunteers
and fundraising.  If the prices increase, I will likely be forced to shift
that cost to them rather than out of my pocket.  I am only out a few
dollars per month with the current DNS pricing, if the pricing increases
100x there is no way I can bare that burden anymore.  I think other
non-profits are likely in the same boat as myself, they have volunteers
that are paying for these things to help the organization they work for
free out.

If you want to raise prices, raise them on the .com's for commercial domain
names.  They are able to afford the cost increases and they are for-profit
