Summary of Submission

ICANN continues to approve large price cap increases in RAs for legacy gTLDs without incorporating public feedback, conducting market analysis, or providing rationale(s) why such items were not considered (or were considered but rejected). Namecheap is submitting this comment in the hopes that ICANN finally considers and incorporates the public's comments on matters which will impact every domain name registrant.
