Default Domain Name Kiting

Bob Parsons, President of Godaddy.com, has his own blog site. Here is an interesting article on domain name kiting.


Parsons says, in effect, that 90% of the domain names registered are not paid for, they are cancelled before they have to be paid for, and re-registered by the same people, who manage to make money by hits to web sites linked to these domain names. This kind of volume must have an adverse effect on the domain name servers providing services to all Internet users.

What do you think? Does it do any good to protest to ICANN?
