Dot-com web addresses prices to swell, thanks to sweetheart deal between Uncle Sam, Verisign
In December 2020 and for each of the next four years until the contract expires in 2024 Verisign will be able to increase the price of dot-coms domains by 7 per cent.
The Internet Commerce Association (ICA) wrote to the US government in 2012 arguing that the realities of the domain name market are such that Verisign could and should actually reduce the cost of dot-com domains by $2 rather than raise them by $2.
In November last year Corwin left his post at ICA after 11 years to become policy counsel for Verisign.
