$6.42 is the new price

Verisign DomainTools: Wholesale price for .COM and .NET is going up, as $6.42 is the new wholesale price for these two TLD, recently issued by Verisign. We are expecting to see the price raises across all retailers and resellers later this year. Thanks to the monopoly! We are going to pay more for a piece of real estate that costs the wholesaler pretty much nothing in the first place.
