WASHINGTON – The Coalition Against Domain Name Abuse (CADNA) enthusiastically endorses Afilias’ new anti-abuse policy for the top-level domain (TLD) .INFO, aimed at fighting “the growing scourges of spam, phishing, and other Internet problems.”
“.INFO shows a real commitment to policing the domain name space for bad actors by working aggressively with its registrars to take down all sites that violate its new policy,” said Josh Bourne, President of CADNA. “.INFO’s example should be a model for all other top-level domains.
“In a multistakeholder setting, each stakeholder has a responsibility to encourage innovation and safety. One does not work without the other. Therefore, I am encouraged that .INFO is establishing responsible guidelines for its registrars. That puts .INFO ahead of the game.”
The website DomainIncite first reported Afilias’ anti-abuse policy.
