ICANN is going after .com price hikes now
@sir wait what?
@kick @sir sounds like they are losing money and expected to for some years with the increased popularity of other domains like .io etc. And I'm assuming to combat inflation. The fact they limited the price increase to 6 year period is nice. But overall it still sucks its going up and will for the foreseeable future.
@sir Given how storage and networking power has gotten so much cheaper, they're providing even less in terms of real value than ever before. Shoot the rent-seekers when?
@kick my email to their public comments list was significantly less cordial than for .org heist
@kick this article can be debunked in two easy steps:
"Ethos has committed to limiting any potential increase in the price of a .ORG domain registration to no more than 10% per year on average"
The US inflation rate fluctuates between 1.7% and 2.3%.
Bonus: 10% price increases would double the price in 8 years, triple it in 12, and continue exponentially to basically any price they want.
