ICANN to Extend Verisign .COM Registry Contract for Another Six Years

"Verisign to get .com for six more years, but prices to stay frozen," Kevin Murphy reporting in Domain Incite: "ICANN and Verisign have agreed to extend their .com registry contract for another six years, but there are no big changes in store for .com owners. Verisign will now get to run the gTLD until November 30, 2024. The contract was not due to expire until 2018, but the two parties have agreed to renew it now in order to synchronize it with Verisign's new contract to run the root zone."

"Public Comment on Proposed Amendment to .COM Registry Agreement," ICANN / 30 Jun 2016: "ICANN is posting for public comment a proposed amendment to the .COM Registry Agreement [PDF, 95 KB]. The proposed amendment extends the term of the .com Registry Agreement to coincide with the term of the Root Zone Maintainer Services Agreement in order to enhance the security, stability and resiliency of root operations. Under the amendment the parties will also negotiate in good faith to amend the agreement to preserve and enhance the security and stability of the Internet or the TLD. The amendment also allows for the parties to address changes made to the Cooperative Agreement."
