The .pw Registry Adopts Uniform Rapid Suspension, ICANN’s Latest Rights Protection Mechanism

The .pw Registry today announced its adoption of  the Uniform Rapid Suspension (URS), ICANN’s latest rights protection mechanism, making it the first TLD to do so. The Uniform Rapid Suspension provides trademark holders with faster protection against infringement than the existing Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). One of our goals in the adoption of URS is also to help the community by ensuring a more refined and predictable experience when the URS roll-out takes place across more than a thousand new gTLDs. – Sandeep Ramchandani, Business Head, The .pw Registry. In case of domain infringement, URS  immediately suspends the infringing domain and then proceeds to a trial, in contrast to UDRP, a more expensive and long process which awards ownership of a domain to the winn...

Single Character .PW Domains Up for Auction From July 12, 2013 to July 16, 2013 Through NameJet

Single Character .PW Domains will be up for auction from July 12, 2013 to July 16, 2013 , announced The Professional Web registry today. The new domain names will be available through NameJet. The response to .PW has been phenomenal. Our goal when we started .PW was to get 100,000 domain names registered in the first year, which was quite challenging because we hadn’t seen too many other comparable TLDs reach that, but we hit 100,000 in the first 20 days since we launched. – Sandeep Ramchandani, Business Head, The .PW Registry. .PW top level domain has seen   250,000 registrations since it was made  available to general public 3 months earlier. In an Interview with DailyHostNews post his WHD.India 2013 session, Sandeep Ramchandani, Business Head, The Professional Web Registry, said &...

“.IN.NET Provides Businesses and Individuals With Good Quality Domain Names”- Neha Naik, .IN.NET

Internet in India is reaching small towns and the lower rungs of the economic ladder very rapidly, bridging geographical barriers and exposing consumers to the market more effectively than ever before. Brick-and-mortar stores can no longer be sufficient with the significant expansion in the variety of products available online. This growing digital influence, currently affecting $30 billion of urban consumer spending, makes getting online not an option but a necessity. However, most Indian businesses looking to get a website face a roadblock on the very first, and probably the most important step of getting online – unavailability of the domain name of their choice. With .COM mostly exhausted and .IN depleting fast, quality domain names are limited and SMBs have to settle for long si...

Directi, Tucows and Namecheap Partner to Manage .online Registry for ICANN’s new gTLD program

Domain industry veterans Directi, Tucows and Namecheap have announced formation of an alliance  to manage the .online registry. Directi and Tucows are  known for their wholesale platforms and the large, global domain name reseller channels they manage. Namecheap, a top-ten retail registrar, is best known for its strong consumer brand and emphasis on customer service. The move comes as ICANN accepted nearly 2,000 applications from prospective registries who would like to manage their own TLDs as  part of its New Generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) program. It’s highly likely that we may see other partnerships formed in the coming days  as ICANN has encouraged applicants not to compete for auction but to team up on gTLD strings to  save themselves considerable time and money. The three com...
