    Hi All,

    We domainers demand reduction of .Com price to be reduced across all registrar with immediate effect.

    Global market is in turmoil, all investments have been halved. Central authorities every where taking initiatives to check further decline and bring market confidence back.

    Registrar must do so. We domainers won't be able to sustain ourselves at current registration price anymore.

    If you feel Registrar should reduce domain registration and transfer price significantly, pls Like/Comment/Share.

    Thanks
    mAx

    if endusers stop buying names, not even your suggested price reduction will save us.

    If people can't afford the $2 - $4 difference per name then either drop them for people who can afford it, stop registering names for while, stop buying names for a while or find something else to do......

    This is a highly unusual demand and proposed solution in the face of the short term fear that is being created, and in many cases intentionally compounded and further sensationalized by media outlets who are getting massive rating and advertising bumps. The challenges we face are real, the need to keep a calm mind critical, but no one's interests are served by this type of reflection or expectation of entitlement.

    Just to understand: you are demanding that the registrars slash their prices, and not only reduce the razor-thin margins they already operate on, but cut deeply into their capacity to ensure they can support their own staff members and future outlooks? That same passion - for slightly adjusted motivations - to keep Verisign for one from further elevating .com prices would be a great outlet! Here though - projecting world collapse as the reason why registrars should further enhance their losses doesn't help anyone. In fact it just contributes more fear to an already concerned general public. Domainers are known for their resiliency, for their courage, their outlook, their innovation, and their optimism. Good values to hold in your own expectation for yourself and others. You are stronger than you think!

    I've never met a registrar that doesn't cherish their customer base, and do everything that they can to innovate and improve the overall experience for domain buyers. But to call for actively hamstringing them because of your perception the world is on fire and never will recover?

    I hope that we wouldn't look at everything this way. You already have a culture of youth demanding vocally to cancel everything. For all of the products in this world that have actively gouged customers to maximize their self gain and benefit - domain names are seldom classified as one of them. I would pray and encourage you to hold great expectations for the future, anticipate markets to recover (as financial groups utilize global trauma to cover losses and over speculation as part of their refresh strategies), and that basic course corrections ultimately will make us stronger.

    You certainly don't want to look back and reflect on how we each individually either built others up, or added to the chaos of the moment, and discover you were on the wrong side of it. Our choices impact others, and I would choose to love one another and expect the absolute best than succumb to the creation of more fear.

    I would recommend reflection on the poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling.

    "If you can keep your head... when all about you are losing theirs...."

    Have a beautiful day! Your are loved, never alone, can choose to cast all fear and anxiety away as it will not serve you, and rest in the knowledge that everything for you will unquestionably work out in the end.

    Domain registrants don't deal with Verisign so we ask Registrars. They should ask Verisign.

    Registers make more money if you can't pay your renewals, then they can auction off your names for added profit, rather than the 30 cents they make on renewals.

    Versign is working hard to raise renewals, not decrease them. One minute they were sending domainers lists of unregistered domains, the next minute they are calling them squatters, they are not anyone's friend.

    Yes but only backdrop of Porkbun is they are yet to support Afternic fast transfer and Sedo MLS. I think it's must future for a domainer as after all we register name to sell.

    It's not about paying capacity, it's about paying the right price which is high considering recent market meltdown.

    We are not an island.
