I am a .org registrant. 


I am writing on behalf of The Tree School Organization to express our concern and disagreement towards the removal of price restrictions on .org domain names.


We do not think it is fair to remove price caps because just as we do, many .org domain owners have been using their websites for years. If price caps are removed, the cost to renew our domain names may become too expensive, and we could be forced to give up websites that are important to us.


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.


ICANN should be doing more to protect owners of .org domain names. Why is ICANN trying to remove price protections for .org domain owners, so many of which are non-profits, so that they can be overcharged for their domain names?


We want to express our disagreement because we are a non-profit organization (like most of .org domain owners) who work for the well-being of the planet and as I said before, we do not think it is fair. There should be price restrictions as they always have existed. Also, legacy extensions, which involve millions of users and was created with the support of the U.S. government, should be treated differently than new extensions.


We hope that our concerns are heard, and we look forward to the resolution of this issue.
