In its comments to ICANN on the new gTLD Last Resort ICANN auction rules Uniregistry says it “is disappointed that ICANN changed the “5-TLD-per-month” cap from its initial proposal.”

“On the current draft schedule, Uniregistry has three months in which it will have seven TLD applications go to auction.

The change from 5 TLDs per month to 7 TLDs per month materially changes the capital an applicant much park with ICANN for maximum bids from $10,000,000/month to $14,000,0000/month.

This has a material, negative impact on virtually all start-up registry applicants. For this reason, Uniregistry proposes that ICANN either revert to the “5-TLD-per-month” cap or scale the maximum bid deposit downward to cap an applicant’s single-month deposit obligation to $10,000,000.”…
