DotAsia Requests ICANN Reduce Fees

DotAsia logoIn a letter to ICANN’s Kurt Pritz, DotAsia has requested ICANN reduce the Registry-Level Operator Transaction Fee in an effort to assist its outreach within Asia to help get more people online.

The letter dated 20 May states “DotAsia has a mandate to promote Internet development and adoption around Asia” and a reduction in the fee “would enable DotAsia to invest further into meaningful community projects as well as to extend the awareness and adoption of the .ASIA domain.”

The letter also says “a lower fee from ICANN will also support a more level playing field, that would help DotAsia’s development and promote the equitable and inclusive development of the Asian economies, especially the developing and disadvantaged. The suggested amendment would also bring the fees into line with other gTLDs.”

The letter from Edmon Chung, Chief Executive Officer of DotAsia Organisation is published on the ICANN website at:
