Hosting ToolboxREGENSBURG & SAN FRANCISCO – San Francisco’s technology center, Silicon Valley, is host to the 40th rotating ICANN Meeting. The international Internet branch is getting together from March 13 – 18, 2011, to discuss the latest developments around nTLDs and more. InterNetX, based in Regensburg, is one of the leading registrars worldwide and, as a silver sponsor, will be present with its own company booth at this first ICANN event of the year. Conference participants will get more detailed information from the ICANN accredited registrar about over 300 ccTLDs and gTLDs it has on offer – as well as individual server and SSL solutions, that also fall under the product portfolio of the Internet Service Provider.

The results of the previous meeting in Brussels, where ICANN and the Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC) discussed controversial questions surrounding nTLDs, will be presented at the upcoming meeting. ICANN has however, already announced that there will be no final decision for the applicant guidebook for new generic top level domains in San Francisco, as there have been further delays caused by political intervention. So far, nobody is able to provide any definite dates for the progress of the latest version of the new gTLD Applicant Guidebook. What is certain though, is that the 41st meeting in Jordanian Amman has been cancelled due to political unrest – the island and city-state, Singapore, has been selected as the alternative location.

March 18, 2009 by · Comments Off on Urges Early .TEL Registration To AVoid CyberSquatting 

Webmaster NewsLondon, UK – A huge rush to for the latest piece of internet property is set to commence when premium fees associated to .tel domains are removed at 15:00 GMT on Tuesday 24 March.

Names which have not been registered by companies with trademark rights or deep pockets are set to be snapped up without delay according to LCN, a leading UK domain registration company. .tel domains which have cost over £300 will be available for just £14.95, encouraging further incidents of the now infamous act of ‘cybersquatting’.

Mark Boost, Managing Director, said: “The premium fees which have been applied to registrations during the public launch to discourage domain squatters from snapping up hundreds of .tel domain names for resale purposes are set to be removed next Tuesday. We would encourage businesses to act now and ensure they gain control of the .tel names related to their company as soon as possible.

“Not only are individuals and companies protecting their brand through the early purchase of a .tel domain, they are securing a hugely innovative domain extension that acts as an easy to access contact page especially useful for the rapidly growing mobile market.”

The recent ‘Brandjacking Index’ published by MarkMonitor this month revealed an 18% increase of cybersquatting during 2008, taking the number of reported instances of cybersquatting identified in the 4th quarter of 2008 to a staggering a total of 440,584. Although Telnic Limited, the registry operator for the .tel domain, has taken numerous steps to protect holders of trademarks related to domain names, there is expected to be a very strong demand for variants of popular trademarked names yet to be secured by their rightful owners.

General availability for the .tel domain name extension will go live on Tuesday 24 March at 15:00GMT. This public registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information about the .tel, or to register your .tel domain name, visit
