    Hello,
    i see that Internet casino. net gets some attention on DC auction and trying understand Verisign strategy on dotnet domains. high renewal and high reg fees will kill dot net gtld? or I am wrong.
    Do you register dotnets?

    Will you move from expensive dot org to dot net?

    Thanks for any opinion.

    I only register domains in these areas for technical sites. All the sites I have are on .com. I think I should explain why not.

    .net only for technical purposes, I think.

    Agreed. .net gTLD is generally less attractive than .org to buyers, so it makes sense to hold on to org.

    However in the network / internet services niches, .net is likely preferred as it better matches the purpose.

    $15.28 .net price for registrars in 2023...
    This means minimum $16 per domain for us.

    Let go of all my .net years ago...glad I did. With the price increase(s) coming, it is clear I will never own one again.

    Hi

    trying to understand how excerpt above has anything to do with .net or .org pricing?

    as those who are interested in that domain, obviously don't have such concerns.

    and I think, you could draw from that, that those who are interested in certain domains, will still purchase them

    those who use .org will continue to do so and same with current .net users


    and of course those who think either extension is too costly, will refrain from buying into them.
    which may result in less competition and more choices for those do

    it is, what it will be

    imo...

    Agreed...a 2L or 3L (especially one that 'makes sense') would be a domain I would be interested in...I, in that case, would still buy a .net
