45: new post   GoDaddy and their new "Selective DNS Blackouts" policy
GoDaddy has a new policy (as of July, 2011) that lets them block DNS packets from high-volume DNS servers. Any domains using GoDaddy's DNS hosting are affected (any domains with 'domaincontrol.com' in them). [br][br]Two such sites that are affected include a niche search engine that is in development, and a project that keeps track of statistics on domains. Sites like these that are blocked by GoDaddy's new policy will be unable to include domains using GoDaddy's DNS hosting (except domains owned by GoDaddy, which are exempt from the Selective DNS Blackouts policy).

47: new post   U.S.A. Claiming All .com and .net Sites Are In Its Jurisdiction
The US's Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) is targeting overseas websites it believes are breaking US copyrights whether or not their servers are based in America or there is another direct US link, said Erik Barnett, the agency's assistant deputy director.[br][br]As long as a website's address ends in .com or .net, if it is implicated in the spread of pirated US-made films, TV or other media it is a legitimate target to be closed down or targeted for prosecution, Barnett said. While these web addresses are traditionally seen as global, all their connections are routed through Verisign, an internet infrastructure company based in Virginia, which the agency believes is sufficient to seek a US prosecution.

49: new post   ICANN Approves .anything Domains
In the for-profit world, that means that instead of going to coke.com or nike.com, you might be able to go to drink.coke or justdoit.nike.

And interest groups could stake out their own corner of the Web by offering every auto junkie a .car domain name, every law firm a .law address, and every restaurant a site that ended with .food.
