The Debate Between ICANN and VeriSign

with 5 comments


There is currently an ongoing debate between ICANN and VeriSign. If this deal does go through, it could allow VeriSign to raise the fee on .com domains by 7% for a period of 4 years. Many big name companies aren't happy about this fees. They are afraid that this increase will drive away customers. If this does get approved, it will add $1.86 to each domain per year. This will go into effect in 2012.
