Yes, we know .org was”saved by all the people that stood against the corrupted ICANN, Public Interest Registry (PIR), the Internet Society and (No)Ethos Capital.
But was .org really saved?
Abry Partners has many close ties to Ethos Capital that tried to purchase .org and failed. Former ICANN CEO Fadi Chehadé and Erik Brooks are just 2 of the people behind all this. The 2 companies probably have many of the same investors if not exactly the same.
Abry Partners acquired Donuts in 2018.
Donuts is purchasing Afilias in 2020.
Afilias is the backend registry for .org (with a new deal on 2018).
Afilias will ask for a big price increase for its .org back-end services claiming whatever they want.
Their friends at Public Interest Registry (PIR) and the Internet Society will approve the price increase.
Public Interest Registry (PIR) and the Internet Society will increase the .org price by at least 2 or 3 times. They are just looking for an excuse to increase prices.
Remember that the corrupt ICANN gave Public Interest Registry (PIR) and the Internet Society the freedom of UNLIMITED price increases on .org.
This is just the beginning.
