  • Spot all the Easter eggs in this Radix mannequin viral [NSFW]

    … Domain registry Radix has shamelessly jumped on the “mannequin challenge” meme bandwagon, with the release of video plugging its forthcoming .fun gTLD. It’s quite slickly produced, on the face of it shot in a single unbroken take (though I suspect there are a few edits hidden in the motion blur), but the real fun for me, as someone who’s…

    … on .online’s sunrise period, which ended yesterday with 775 sales. That number is of course low by pre-2012 standards, but it’s in the top tier of sunrise periods for non-controversial new gTLDs. The only strings to top 1,000 names to date have been ICM Registry’s .porn and .adult and Vox Populi’s .sucks. .CLUB’s sunrise weighed in at 454 domains…

  • Phishers prefer free ccTLDs to new gTLDs

    … Domains in free and cheap ccTLDs are much more likely to host phishing attacks than new gTLDs. That’s one of the conclusions of the latest report of the Anti-Phishing Working Group, which found that Freenom’s re-purposed African ccTLDs were particularly risky.
