If you haven’t heard yet, the price of dot com domains could be going up by the end of November this year. Verisign, the company that dominates/monopolizes the dot com industry by being the only one able to sell .com domains since 2000, has been seeking an increase since 2012 when their first attempt failed.
The current Cooperative Agreement between the U.S. National Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA) and Verisign expires on November 30, 2018 and unless it is extended in its current form, Verisign may successfully get their long-sought price increase.
With this increase you will end up contributing to the hundreds of millions of dollars in registration fees that Verisign will be making.
