    Not Good !

    There really seems as there is NO justification for it … as we are in deflationary times and Verisign already raised rates not too long ago… among other reasons.

    They very recently put a halt on .COM price increases recently but why then are they raising prices on .NET so soon ???

    Don’t much like this Monopoly stuff !
