I am a domain name registrant. ICANN does not seem to recognize the
difference between a legacy extension created with the support of the US
government, that predates the existence of ICANN and that has millions of
existing users and the brand new extensions that started off with a new set
of rules, in particular no price controls, and no existing registrants.
They have completely different characteristics, history, and ownership
structure. It is not acceptable for ICANN to ignore these differences and
to propose that they be treated the same. Removing price caps is not fair
to .org domain owners. Many of them have websites that they have used for
years. If price caps are removed, the cost to renew their domain names may
become too expensive, and they could be forced to give up websites that are
important to them. The Uniform Rapid Suspension policy is too new and
untested to apply on domain names that may be 20 years old or more. With
the URS, the domain names could be taken down in a matter of days with
little notice.
