You might have to pay a lot more for your .org and .info domains in the future.

Domain name overseer ICANN has proposed new contracts for the .Org and .Info registries that would eliminate price caps on the domain names. Under the terms of the new agreements, .Org operator Public Interest Registry and .Info operator Afilias could increase prices on registrations to an unlimited amount, provided that they give advance notice.

The terms are similar to those found in new top level domain name agreements that have resulted in some registry operators jacking up prices as much as 30x. While those cases were for little-used domains, .Org currently has 10 million domains under management.
