Subject: Overcoming cybersquatting and domain name speculation


      Dear Mr Berent,

      There are a number of ways to overcome cybersquatting and domain name speculation :

      (i) Registries should never allow any lame delegations. The MY NIC ( refuses to register domains if they are lame delegations, i.e. name servers not responding authoritively.

      (ii) Registries should make sure that the minimum name servers allowed for any one SLD to be registered is TWO (2) or more.

      (iii) Registries should also make sure that for every SLD to be registered, the name servers are on different international backbones.

      (iv) Registry may use pricing mechanisms however registry should be aware that if the prices are too high the TLD may have less demand.

      I hope that helps.

--Eugene Kang
