Date Changes for .biz and .info

Mark your calendars-the claim and registration periods have been altered for the .biz and .info TLDs. The .biz claiming period has been extended to allow more trademark and service mark holders to take advantage of the Intellectual Property service. Both the early and standard registration dates for .biz and .info have also been affected. The new dates are as follows:

  • Aug. 6, 2001: End of .biz Claiming Period
  • July 24, 2001 - Aug. 28, 2001: Early Registration for .info
  • July 24, 2001 - Sept. 17, 2001: Early Registration for .biz
  • Sept. 19, 2001: Standard .info Registration Begins
  • Oct. 16, 2001: Standard .biz Registration Begins

Registration dates for the other five new TLDs have yet to be determined. If you haven't claimed your .biz brand, now is your last chance. Go to and protect your online identity!

Beware of Fraudulent FBI Emails

If you recently received email that appeared to be from someone at the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), please examine it carefully. If it asks for credit card information, DO NOT RESPOND! Recently, numerous people have received emails from addresses containing "fbi" and" requesting credit card information. These email addresses are not valid. The FBI's Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) warns that the FBI does not solicit credit card information via email, and that it is not responsible for these occurrences. Unfortunately, such email scams are fairly common. Just remember, it is never a good idea to send credit card or account information in an unsecured email.

Australia Gets Competitive: .au Competitive Model Approved

In order to decrease prices and improve services, the .au Domain Administration (auDA) board has approved a competitive plan similar to the .com domain. Companies wishing to offer second-level .au domains must be accredited and meet certain standards set by the auDA. Once accredited, the new registrars can offer any combination of second-level .au names that they wish. The auDA will regulate the domain and its WHOIS database. We will keep you informed as to when this competitive structure will go into effect.

On July 12, ICANN released its first At-Large Membership Study Discussion Paper. The committee was established to examine issues surrounding individual participation and representation in ICANN's policy-making procedures. The paper basically states that yes, individual users should be allowed to participate, and yes, individual users should be represented on ICANN's board. However, the paper makes no definitive recommendation about how an At-Large membership should be structured. Instead, it lists certain goals that the membership structure must meet and asks for additional input on a wide variety of concerns, such as conflict-of-interest provisions and staff accountability. This is your opportunity to speak up and add to the discussion. Take a few moments to read over the report and add your two cents, because this decision will have a large impact on the domain governing body.

This week's quote comes from a frustrated, former NSI customer who happened to cc us on his response to NSI when he was attempting to transfer his domains.

TO: Network Solutions
(from their ex-customer)

Subject: Change of Registrar

Which class do you fall into? Are you more stupid than incompetent, or more incompetent than stupid? I couldn't answer because you routed my email into your bit bucket, and you KNOW I couldn't receive that message to confirm it. We WILL change all 60 domains we control away from your quasi-fraud manipulations. You guys are dead, You're yesterday's news. You have competent competition at HALF the price and no fake corporate tricks to try to keep your accounts. The more you try to force accounts into your service the more will run from your grasp. You are hereby instructed to release my domain to the new registrar and NEVER try to hold my business by force again.
