Despite concerns InternetNZ went ahead regardless and copied Nominet's DRS policy. Registrars not allowed to register and hold generic domain names InternetNZ's Domain Name Commissioner Debbie Monahan cancelled 350 domain names registered to Auckland-based Go Kiwi Internet because, she said, the company was unfairly exploiting its position to speculate on them. While individuals and companies are allowed to register and hold a generic domain name in the hope of one day selling it, registrars are not because they have inside information, such as which names are available, and when, said Monahan. InternetNZ the New Zealand registry copied Nominet's DRS regardless despite concerns. Nominet now proposes to reclassify tagholders as registrars under "Raising Industry Standards". Birds of a feather..... Nominet to copy InternetNZ policy re registrars ?
