The outrage in the domain industry about Verisign is laughable. 10 years ago when it really counted, domainers were AWOL! There was a lawsuit against Verisign, but domainers did not support it and eventually we ran out of funds to fight. Guys with 250,000 names or more sat on the sidelines. They contributed nothing. Now they are outraged?? Give me a break!
Go buy some Verisign stock! I hope the prices go up and it forces the wannabes out. Remember, I was paying $100 a pop at the start. Then $70. Then less. At $8 I am not sure why everyone is so upset. For a REAL business $8/year is a joke! You can't get a decent Burger, Fries and Coke for $8 let alone a WORLDWIDE presence!
So stop the whining! Increasing the registration prices only hurt domainers and NOBODY gives a rats ass about Domainers! I don't think a real business owning 1-10 domains cares. Why should they!?
I would suggest that some dump all their domains. With the savings on renewals just buy Verisign and you will MAKE MORE MONEY!
Here is a list of metals. If you ask the average person on the street to list all the metals the best they will do is come up with about 10-15. Probably less. That's out of about 100. And they have been around all of our lifetimes and it was taught to us in school.
There are going to be 1000 GTLD's. The average person could not name 10-15 and NEVER will. The average person could not name ONE today! NOT ONE!!! The fact that "Domain Speculators" can't even see, discuss or understand this tells you everything. It's just too simple to understand. But as their wallets keep getting lighter, they should eventually figure it out. MAYBE!
They do have one thing in common. Most new GTLD's have a lower value than TIN! But everyone knows TIN! GTLD's for the most part are BILLS not ASSETS! Do domainers actually know the difference? Tin at least has value and there is demand.
