CIRA withdraws from ICANN


Well, if you’ve used the .CA address to get here, this is interesting. As you might know, I currently own , and Canadian domain


Many folks (here , here ) have been protesting ICANN ‘s unwaivering support of Verisign for the administration of the top-level .com domains. Finally a national registry, traditionally quite cozy with ICANN , has pulled out of ICANN in protest of the February 28th announcement by ICANN.

This is one of those open-market things for me. I don’t believe that the internet spun out of control when InterNic turned Network Solutions lost exclusive TLD control for .net, .org, etc.
