.XYZ domains : When you sell domains at $0.01 you become a spam enabler

Phuck all spammers.

Phuck all spammers.

The .XYZ Registry might be issuing disclaimers regarding malware and spam – to be reported and taken care of – but such an approach is not very kosher.

Imagine a world where the default is to be spammed first, and be removed from the spam list only after you complained about it.

Like the Greek fable of Hydra, by the time you complain about the first incident, 10 more instances have showed up.

Let’s not forget the manner in which the .XYZ Registry gained its first million domains: through a Network Solutions robo-promotion, that created free .XYZ domains in the accounts of the .com holders, without any discretion.

That’s akin to walking up to Daniel Negari’s personal fridge, stocking it up with Cherry Coke, even though he only drinks Coke Zero. He can toss it out, right?

The latest promotion by the .XYZ Registry created some cheap incentives for spammers to register penny domains. We are already aware of a domain lot of 100+ random .XYZ strings ready to be used for malware and spamming campaigns.

Spam is a serious issue and not to be taken lightly.

Domain Registries that sell domains below cost not only devalue their gTLD, they also become spam enablers.
