They have a lot of their own renewals too
your jokes are always the best
Your joke is here:
I’m not going to sign up to the website in order to reply.
Saying renewals should be $1,000 was just throwing a number out. The point is, they should dramatically increase. If you can only afford one domain than so be it.
Believe it or not, it would save 99% of members at NP money. How? They won’t be able to afford all the junk they register which pads the bottom line at registrars, not the registrant.
There is some logic to what you are saying, but they could instead pass a law that limits the number of domains each person can register and that will achieve the same results as you want. (and or license those who want to be domainers)
Thank you @Joe Styler for the information. I also got the email.
Empowering the wealthy. Solid.
Or making people think before they spend. Imagine that concept...
That's definitely a good point and something a lot of people should think about. A different issue though.
I can live with a decent rise as everything is getting more expensive. As long as it's justified. Raising prices to , let's say, just $100, would definitely not be.
If you want to kill a TLD real quick this would definitely be the way to go.
Give it some years with a $1000 price tag and let's see how fast .com will get dethroned.
As it stands, people want to hoard domains and ask ridiculous prices. If they can only afford to keep half of their domains, the rest go back into the pool at a standard rate. It could actually build .com, not destroy it.
Yes it will render a lot worthless. It will kill most of liquidity of the mid and lower valued liquid domains. Domainers leave, legitimate private people leave, hobbyist leave. Small companies leave. Only tier one domains will survive but as the namespace shrinks they will drop big time in value just the same.
Stuff like that kills a namespace. But hey, you planted a seed for thought and I respect that. Would be a nice experiment and it could actually speed up the demise of the web as we know it which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Last chance to comment against the Registry .com price increase!
Everything tech related has gone down over time why should domain renewals go up - which actually domain renewals too have gone down over the years. Why reverse that trend now?
Verisign already makes $1 billion in gross profit annually so the proposed .COM price increase is purely based on greed.
The current rate of $7.85 is already far more than justified. I am sure there are other companies quite happy to manage the monopoly of the .com Registry for way less than $7.85 per domain.
ICANN is supposed to govern the domain name system in the public interest. But it looks that $1 billion is not enough for Verisign.
I have sent my comments - however I know exactly what I will do in the following months of 2020:
Buying stocks of Verisign and GoDaddy.
There is no requirement to sign up that is a completely false statement.
It says a name and email are required in order to comment.

Yes as in every other blog in the world, you are not registering for an account. No username and password.
Why would I give an email to a third party site when the discussion was here first?
Also, people are making comments there which are 100% false. I don’t do blog posts or videos to sell my domains. Never have. Whoever Nick is has the wrong guy.
Also, no, I didn’t miss the boat and the few sales I publish here at NP are proof. Another genius commenting with no clue.
Hello Sir. In my opinion that comment was not worth to be publised at tldinvestors.com
The comment does not deserve even a place in this thread, not to mention in tldinvestors.com
Which you did not mention a comment.
Keith I did not ask you to comment, I know who you are, I corrected you had to sign up for an account. I don't know why the other member tagged you.
I mean this comment:
It was not worth to be published here:
But that's just my opinion.
As you already said at the article, that was just a trolling post.
Separate names with a comma.
