adix, registry operator of .tech and 8+ other new Top-Level Domains (TLDs) like .online, .store etc. announced that a start-up using a premium .tech domain, raised $6.7 million in funding last week.

The domain ‘blue.tech‘ was privately brokered for an undisclosed amount earlier this year and is being used by a United States based startup. The company using blue.tech works in conjunction with research labs and top investors to kick start and fund new innovations. First announced on dngeek.com, blue.tech is the only new TLD featured in the list of the top startups funded last week.

In 2016, blue.tech comes as a second big win for .tech, as it quickly gains popularity on the startup scene. Earlier this year in February, the winners of the Launch Hackathon (in San Francisco) also used a .tech domain for their project — betagig.tech. The startup was the official winner of the Launch Hackathon and took home $250,000 as an investment from the event organizers.

Hackers using expired domain names to launch new malware attacks

Expired domain names are becoming the latest route for cyber criminals to find their way into the computers of unsuspecting users.

Cyber criminals launched a malicious advertising campaign this week targeting visitors of popular news and entertainment websites after gaining ownership of an expired web domain of an advertising company.

Users visiting the websites of the New York Times, Newsweek, BBC and AOL, among others, may have installed malware on their computers if they clicked on the malicious ads.

Bresntsmedia.com, the website used by hackers to serve up malware, expired on Jan. 1 and was registered again on March 6 by a different buyer, security researchers at Trustwave SpiderLabs wrote in a blog.

Buying the domain of a small but legitimate ad company provided the criminals with high quality traffic from popular web sites that publish their ads directly, or as affiliates of other ad networks, the researchers said.

New York Times spokesman Jordan Cohen said the company was investigating if the attack had any impact. « To be clear, this is impacting ads from third parties that are beyond our control. »

Newsweek, BBC and AOL could not be immediately reached for comment.

The researchers also found two more expired « media »-related domains – envangmedia.com and markets.shangjiamedia.com – used by the same cyber criminals.

The people behind the campaign may be on keeping a watch for expired domains with the word « media » in them, they said.

.Cloud domains are now on sale

dimanche 21 février 2016 @ 14:06 posted by Nicolas MATA

If you’ve been hanging on for the perfect domain name for your cloud computing, skydiving, or weather forecasting website, now’s your chance — you can now buy .cloud domain names. Major domain name registrars including 1and1 and GoDaddy are now offering the suffix for around $20 to $25, more than a year after the right to control the .cloud top level domain was won by Italian company Aruba.

Aruba — Italy’s biggest domain name and hosting company — outbid Amazon, Google, and four other competitors for the .cloud name in November 2014. At the time the company said it would offer the domains at mass-market prices, rather than try to charge exorbitant fees for cloud-based companies who might want a correspondingly named site. In a world of .co, .ly, and .pizza domains, .cloud isn’t exactly the most catchy name, but if you’re fast, you might still be able to get oldmanyellsat.cloud.

Cars Registry, a joint venture between XYZ and Uniregistry, today announced public availability of its domains ending in .Cars, .Car, and .Auto. Dealerships, manufacturers, and all other businesses can now register auto-specific domains on a first-come, first-served basis.

The global launch of .Cars, .Car, and .Auto follows a successful Early Access Period, where domains like V.Auto, AppleFord.Cars, Cox.Auto, and Exotic.Cars were registered. Manufacturer registrations include Lamborghini.Cars, Infiniti.Cars, Genesis.Auto, and Toyota.Auto. Domains like Michelin.Auto, BFGoodrich.Auto, and StateFarm.Cars were also secured by automotive businesses. Industry newcomers, including Apple.Car, GoogleX.Cars, and Alibaba.Auto, have also registered.

Auto-specific domain names give businesses an opportunity to establish themselves as industry leaders by securing short, geographic, and keyword domains like 1.Car, LA.Auto, and Hybrid.Cars for a standard fee.

« Businesses can now truly expand their reach. A Florida-based dealer group could dominate its market by showcasing its inventory on web addresses like Orlando.Cars, FL.Car, JAX.Cars, and Miami.Auto, » said Mike Ambrose, COO of Cars Registry.

Several automotive businesses have already begun using the new domains to stand out from their competition. Scholfield launched its new portal on Wichita.Cars, while STL Motorcars has rebranded to STL.Cars. STL.Cars is already a top search result for terms like « St Louis Bentley » and « STL exotics. »

Businesses registering a .Cars, .Car, or .Auto domain are also eligible to have their website migrated to their new domain at no cost: « The transition from STLMotorcars.com to STL.Cars by the Cars Registry white-glove team was extremely simple, and enabled us to maintain our search engine ranking, SEO, and emails in the process, » said dealership principal Graham Hill.

To register .Cars, .Car, and .Auto domains, visit www.Go.Cars or authorized retailers like GoDaddy.Cars, NetworkSolutions.Cars, Uniregistry.Cars, and Name.com.

Last week I published a blog looking back on the year that was 2015 and reflecting on some of the challenges and achievements for new TLDs. Turning our gaze forward, I think 2016 is shaping up to be the biggest and best year that we’ve enjoyed to date and will surpass many expectations as we continue the push towards mainstream adoption of these wonderful, innovative digital assets.

Appellita: a new tool for finding domain names

samedi 21 novembre 2015 @ 13:51 posted by Nicolas MATA

Some innovative approaches to finding good domain names.

There are a bunch of brand name and domain name generators on the web. Every once in a while, one comes along with a unique twist that makes it worth a look.

That’s the case with Appellita, a new service that soft launched in last August. It was created by San Antonio entrepreneur Daisy Egeolu.

Appellita, like basically all name generators, has a system that adds prefixes and suffixes to keywords to find domains. But it goes beyond that.

Two tools are offered free: Name Suggestion Engine and Name Deconstructor.

Name Suggestion Engine is very similar to most name finders.

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)  released it annual report yesterday for 2014 and Year to Date numbers through September 2015 for cases it decided under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (“UDRP”)

Cases filed ins 2014 were up only 2% from 2013,  with 2,634 cases being lodged by trademarks owners claiming abuse of their mark.

Country-code top-level domains (ccTLDs) – accounted for 13% of all filings in 2014 with 71 national domain registries now designating this WIPO service.

As of 30 September 2015,  14% of WIPO’s 2015 cases are new gTLD’s

Between January 1 and September 30th, 2015, the number of UDRP cases is up 3.9% with  2,015 UDRP cases were filed, against 1,940 UDRP being filed in the same 9 month time frame in 2014.

Of course that numbers do not include cases filed under the Uniform Rapid Suspension Policy (URS) since those are only being handled by a competitor to WIPO the National Arbitration Forum which also handles UDRP cases.

Les mots de passes

dimanche 20 septembre 2015 @ 11:44 posted by Nicolas MATA

Le moyen principal d’authentification sur Internet est le mot de passe – vieux d’un demi-siècle, mécanisme secret partagé qui est difficile à utiliser (en particulier sur les appareils mobiles) et qui est reconnu comme avoir des failles de sécurité, y compris des attaques à grande échelle. Même ainsi, les mots de passe restent la forme la plus répandue d’authentification avec les efforts faits visant à améliorer la sécurité se fondant généralement sur « bolt on » des solutions qui augmentent la friction utilisateur.
La sagesse traditionnelle soutient que des niveaux accrus de sécurité sont proportionnelles à la complexité accrue / difficulté. Par exemple, une porte avec un verrou est généralement considéré comme une « barrière à l’entrée » plus sûre que l’autre sans. L’authentification à deux facteurs est considéré par certains comme supérieure aux mots de passe seul. Les deux sont plus difficiles à utiliser mais peut ne pas fournir une sécurité renforcée dans la pratique.
