ARI Registry Services Public Comment on the SSAC Report on Dotless Domains
Whilst ARI Registry Services recognise the concerns raised by the SSAC in relation to dotless domains, ARI Registry Services believe that a greater effort should be made to identify and explore solutions to the concerns raised prior to prohibiting the use of dotless domains. Rationale: the SSAC report presents a range of problems associated with the use of dotless domains and subsequently recommends their prohibition. The SSAC report fails to challenge the identified problems by presenting possible solutions for consideration by the community. The problems identified by the SSAC are application, and not protocol, related. They do not raise security concerns but may arguably raise stability concerns owing to the lack of awareness regarding the utilization of dotless domains. Such problems may be addressed by educating applicants – a somewhat reasonably ask given that there are a defined number of applicants.
