VeriSign wins .com renewal

http://j.mp/TwnsQp  (Huffington)

   "The federal government has cleared VeriSign Inc. to run the key
    directories that keep track of ".com" domain names for another six
    years, but the company won't be allowed to raise prices without prior
    approval.  Under a contract, which expires Friday, VeriSign was
    guaranteed four price increases of up to 7 percent each on domain name
    registrations. VeriSign sought a similar guarantee in the renewal, but
    the Commerce Department rejected it. In a statement Friday, VeriSign
    said the new contract freezes the current annual price at $7.85 per
    name, barring special circumstances."
