    VeriSign Retains .COM

    http://www.internetnews.com/bus-news...le.php/3646471

    VeriSign has emerged again as the .com master nine months after submitting its revised deal to the U.S. Department of Commerce (DoC).

    Under the terms of the agreement, negotiated between ICANN and VeriSign, VeriSign will continue to manage the .com registry until 2012. It also allows VeriSign to increase domain prices, which was a provision that many in the domain registry business opposed.

    The DoC's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) listened to the opposition, holding a number of hearings looking into the deal. As a result of testimony, the final agreement imposes a number of conditions on VeriSign that the original deal with ICANN did not.

    "Under this amendment, the Department retains oversight over any changes to the pricing provisions of, or renewals of, the new .com registry agreement," reads a statement from the NTIA.

    So they retain oversight, but will do nothing when prices increase because it's allowed under the agreement
