ICANN to prohibit nonexistent-domain redirect for new TLDs

Postby TeMerc » Mon Nov 30, 2009 12:20 am

ICANN considers saying "No yuo!" to "ALL YOUR DNS ERRORS ARE BELONG TO US." For the managers of new top-level domains, at least.

Earlier this week, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) published a draft of an "explanatory memorandum" for a proposed clause that prohibits the managers of new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) as well as IDN country code top-level domains (ccTLDs) from redirecting users when they try to access a nonexistent domain name. In 2003, Verisign, the operator of the .com and .net gTLDs, ran such a system under the name Site Finder for several weeks, until criticism from the community made them turn it off.
