Verisign to keep .net registry

Verisign, who run both .com and .net have effectively won the re-tender for the .net TLD.

The turnover for .net is around US $40 million so a fairly valuable win, especially as there will be almost no variable cost in having .net on top of .com, for Verisign.

I was hoping Denic would come out on top as they have a good record with .de, which is even bigger than .net, and were looking IIRC at a much lower registry price. But not to be.
