There is an auction coming up for the .shop and .shopping gTLDs and Domain Incite reports that it is getting “weird”.
The report notes that there are three ways the auction could play out, and it’s possible that the winning bidder(s) may not have to pay out anything in the auction.
There is reportedly a growing issue with security and DDOS attacks and IPv6 according to a report in Dark Reading. According to the report “because IPv6 occupies such a relatively small space, Internet security implementations that take it into full consideration are also lagging. This leaves a lot of networks vulnerable to distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.”
Nordic Domain Days is coming in late November and will be held in Stockholm. Nordic Domain Days will be part of the long-running and very popular Internet Days (Internetdagarna) organised by IIS, the registry for .se and .nu.
