    It’s not the billion-dollar bonus for Verisign.

    As expected, ICANN has agreed* to let Verisign (NASDAQ: VRSN) increase prices on .com domain names starting this year.

    The U.S. government had already agreed to the price increases, but these increases aren’t included in Verisign’s current agreement with ICANN that runs for four more years. So Verisign had to go back to ICANN and ask it to renegotiate the contract to add the increases now.
