.org : 8,5 millions de domaines et une hausse constante

Le Public Interest Registry (l’organisme chargé de gérer le top-level domain .org) a dévoilé hier soir les résultats de son rapport bi-annuel sur les noms de domaine en .org, le troisième au monde après les .com et .net. Le « Dashboard », comme est baptisé le rapport, nous apprend qu’à l’occasion de ses 25 ans, le .org atteint les 8,5 millions de domaines, et continue sa hausse.

Au cours de la première moitié de l’année 2010, le top-level domain (TLD) .org a augmenté de 7,6%, ce qui fait plus que doubler par rapport à la hausse de 3,2% au cours de la même période en 2009. Cette augmentation amène le nombre de domaines gérés par le Public Interest Registry à 8,5 millions.

.ORG to Fully Deploy DNSSEC in June

.ORG, The Public Interest Registry to complete its final step of DNSSEC deployment by June 30, 2010

.ORG, The Public Interest Registry (PIR) today announced plans to complete the final step to realizing full DNSSEC deployment in the .ORG registry by accepting second level signed .ORG zones beginning in June of 2010. This positions .ORG as the first generic top-level domain (TLD) to offer full DNSSEC deployment.

All registrars can now plan to offer an additional security service to their customers. The benefits of DNSSEC include the ability to thwart the increasing predominance of attacks like pharming, cache poisoning, and DNS redirection that have been used to commit fraud, distribute malware, and/or identity theft. DNSSEC, an upgrade to the internet infrastructure, protects Internet resolvers (clients) from forged DNS data, such as that created by DNS cache poisoning.

« This announcement coupled with recent ones by Comcast, various ccTLDs and even ICANN, is an important signal not only for application providers, ISPs, and telcos, but also for registrars to begin planning for their implementation now, to address the need for enhanced security for their customers, » said Alexa Raad, CEO of PIR. « Ensuring Internet security and stability are among our highest priorities and being the first to fully deploy DNSSEC positions .ORG registrants to be amongst the first to safeguard their users from escalating security threats, especially as Internet usage continues to grow exponentially. »

Launching signed delegations, with the technical support of Afilias, is the final step in PIR’s phased approach to fully deploying DNSSEC within the .ORG zone. A rigorous « friends and family » testing phase, started in June of 2008 has enabled PIR not only to thoroughly test and address operational and deployment issues related to zone management, key distribution and rollover, but also to assist registrars in the development and deployment of the service.

« We applaud PIR’s leadership in the deployment of DNSSEC in the gTLD space, » said Rod Beckstrom, President and Chief Executive Officer of ICANN. « Opening up general registration of signed zones in .ORG is a major step forward. »

All interested registrars must pass a mandatory DNSSEC Certification Test

Poker.org sold for $1 Million, Most Ever For .org Domain

Sedo, a domain marketplace, has brokered the largest sale of a .org domain to date. Brokered on behalf of National A-1 Advertising, the domain poker.org was sold to PokerCompany.com for the sum of $1 million. Prior to the sale of poker.org, the highest .org sale was $198,000 for engineering.org, followed by sexe.org which sold for $151,400. The sale price for poker.org is smaller than those of some of the largest .com sales, which rang in at $5.1 million for Toys.com, and $3 Million for the candy.com sale. Edit: Sex.com was the largest .com sale at $14M. Fund.com was notable in that it sold for $10 million.

Domain registrations for .org’s have risen recently, up 11% in the first half of 2009 over the same period a year before according to pir.org Currently there are over 7 million .org domain registrations, making .org’s the third largest domain extension, trailing only .com and .net.

La vente de poker.org établit un nouveau record

Selon Techcrunch, le nom de domaine « poker.org » aurait été vendu au second marché, pour le montant record d’un million de $.

Il s’agit du plus gros montant jamais enregistré pour un nom en « .org ». Le précédent record avait été établi par la vente de « sexe.org », acheté 151 000 $ en juin 2008. Pour ce qui concerne les noms de domaine poker, dont les ventes pour des montants à cinq chiffres sont fréquentes, le précédent record connu était la vente de « poker.mobi », à 150 000 $, fin 2007.

Le nom « poker.org » aurait été acquis via le site d’intermédiation Sedo par la société PokerCompany.com, qui gère un réseau d’affiliation.

.ORG Chinese IDN Deployment

Please be advised that on 23 January 2010 between 15:00 and 19:00 UTC, the .ORG Production System is scheduled for downtime to allow for the deployment of Chinese Internationalized Domain Names (IDN).
Registrations of the Chinese IDNs on 23 January 2010 at 19:00 UTC will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. During this scheduled downtime, the .ORG Production System including the Web Based Admin Tool and WHOIS will be unavailable. Domains will continue to resolve as normal during this time period.

Chinese IDNs (not including Spanish, German, Danish, Hungarian, Icelandic, Korean (Hangul), Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish and Swedish) registered between 19:00 UTC, 23 January 2010 and 19:00 UTC, 22 February 2010 (during the first 30 days of operation) will be placed on Server Delete Prohibited, Server Transfer Prohibited, Server Update Prohibited, Server Renew Prohibited and Server Hold. These statuses will remain in effect until 25 March 2010 to allow intellectual property interests to file UDRP actions if warranted.

All Chinese Legacy IDNs will continue to be unlocked to allow for registrar updates (including Language Tags). Beginning on 23 January 2010, during the registrar’s assignment of the Chinese Language Tag (Traditional Chinese ZH-TW or Simplified Chinese ZH-CN), the .ORG system will verify that the Chinese Legacy IDN Punycode string meets the corresponding policy profile of the Chinese Language Tag in the .ORG system. If this requirement is not met, the Language Tag assignment will fail. Upon valid Language Tag updates, the following statuses will automatically be removed from the domain(s) – Server Hold, Server Renew Prohibited and Server Transfer Prohibited. The domain(s) will then be added to the .ORG Zone File to enable DNS resolution (assuming it meets all other requirements for inclusion in the zone file e.g. minimum NS).

Chinese Legacy IDN domains that are updated with a Language Tag must be updated with « thick » contact data, or risk possible deletion of the domain by the Registry.

Please note that all expired Chinese Legacy IDNs will auto-renew following successful updating of the Language Tag. If a registrar chooses to delete the domain, they must do so within the 45 day auto-renew grace period or prior to updating the Language Tag.
Registrars are encouraged to ensure that adequate funds are available to support these auto-renewals.

All .ORG Chinese Legacy IDNs that have an expiration date prior to 23 January 2010, will have the expiry date reset to 23 January 2010. PIR is resetting the expiry dates of all .ORG Chinese Legacy IDNs so as to fulfill our earlier commitment to you of not charging for maintaining Legacy .ORG IDNs.

Updated Registrar Manual and FAQs detailing the .ORG Chinese IDN were made available to Registrars on Dec 9, 2009.

Maintenance .ORG

The .ORG Production Registry System is scheduled for maintenance on 12 December 2009 between the hours of 15:00 and 19:00 UTC. During this period, the .ORG Shared Registration System (SRS), including the Web-based Administrative Interface and the WHOIS service, will be unavailable. Registering and manipulating domain and other registry objects will not be possible. Domains will continue to resolve normally.

Les .ORG plus forts que les .COM et .NET !

PIR a publié un rapport bi-annuel intitulé le “Dashboard” (1). Le document montre que le .ORG a cru de 11% en 2008/2009, atteignant presque 8 millions de noms de domaine (il semble y avoir une confusion dans le texte entre nombre de noms de domaine et nombre de titulaires). Le taux de renouvellement, à 73%, est légèrement supérieur à celui des COM et NET annoncé par Verisign. Le .ORG aurait été, sur l’année 2009, celle des extensions génériques qui aurait le plus grandi, avec une performance de +5%,contre +3.2% pour le COM (et -2.6% pour le MOBI). Ses titulaires sont majoritairement situés en Amérique du nord (64%) et en Europe (24%).
