Registrar Constituency on Sitefinder.

The registrars’ constituency has sent a resolution to Paul Twomey. Key points:

  • ICANN should immediately require that VeriSign suspends [Sitefinder] and returns a “NXDOMAIN” response for zone file entries that do not exist;
  • registry services should be compatible with the relevant agreements, and the security and stability of the DNS;
  • gTLD registries should be required to follow a predetermined process when introducing new services in the future; that process should in particular investigate contractual questions, and security and stability implications.
