Tasting: Other TLDs interested by .Org’s tax?

« (Reporting from the ICANN Meeting in San Juan, Puerto-Rico). When PIR, the .Org Registry asked for an amendment to its contract with ICANN, the decision was met with little fanfare.

Nevertheless, the Registry’s decision to charge a five 5 cents deletion fee per domain to Registrars who would delete more than 90% of the domains registered in a month can be seen as some kind of Domainer Tax and was highly talked about this week in the ICANN corridors.

Indeed, when thousands of domains are tasted per month, a mere 5 cents can represent a lot of money in the end. From what we have heard, as far as PIR is concerned, the amendment, implemented a month ago, is already deemed successful as it is responsible for quite a dramatic down in domain names deletion.

While the Registry is currently happy with the outcome, it could move the threshold from 90% to a lesser number to make an even stronger deterent to Tasting. A solution that other gTLDs are reportedly looking into, with the strong backing of the Intellectual Property Constituency.  »

.ORG Registry DNS Publication Maintenance

The .ORG Shared Registry System (SRS) is scheduled for a DNS publication maintenance on 3 June 2007 between the hours of 00:00 and 04:00 UTC.
During this period, the .ORG Shared Registry System (SRS), including the Web-based Administrative Interface and the WHOIS service will be available. Registering and manipulating domain names and other registry objects will not be affected. Domains will continue to resolve normally. Updates to the DNS will be held in queue until the maintenance is completed.

Le système d’enregistrement partagé des .ORG (SRS) sera en maintenance pour mise à jour DNS le 3 juin 2007 entre minuit et 4h00. Pendant cette période, le système d’enregistrement, y compris l’interface d’administration Web et le service de WHOIS seront disponibles. Les enregistrements et modifications de domaines ne seront pas affectés. Les domaines continueront à résoudre normalement.

.Net Still Second Choice For Domain Registrants

73% of survey respondents say they’d register .net if .com was taken.

Finding good .com domains is getting harder and harder. Respondents to Domain Name Wire’s 2007 survey were asked If a .com is taken, what’s your second choice of a TLD?. For the second year in a row, .net came out on top with 73% of the vote. Last year .net took 63% of the vote. The rank order from last year stayed the same, although .org slipped a bit:

1. .Net 73%
2. .Info 17%
3. .Org 9%
4. .Biz 2%

(Total greater than 100% due to rounding). Respondents were not allowed to select country code domains, such as .de and .us, as alternatives.

I was somewhat surprised by .org’s drop given some high dollar sales in December 2006, including Date.org for $150,000 and Loan.org for $105,000. However, .org is still recognized as a non-commercial domain by most web users.

There have been a number of notable .net sales over the past year:

Sex.net $454,500
RealEstate.net $300,000
CreditCards.net $118,500
Bingo.net $56,500
Career.net $52,500
Model.net $50,000

Of course, most domain investors will simply select an alternative .com domain if their first pick is unavailable or the price is too high.
