    ICANN Strives to Stop GoDaddy and Others from Domain Name Abuse - Conclusion

    (Page 4 of 4 )

    According to Nevett, "This protection measure provides our customers the opportunity to register domains they have previously searched without the fear that the name will be already taken through Front Running." Nevett realized that customers may not agree with the company's policy, but Network Solutions strives to stop crooked behavior from hurting its customers.

    One problem Network Solutions might have in convincing customers that this policy exists for security purposes is that the company does not have anything written about it on its website. Network Solutions' CEO, Champ Mitchell, is willing to change the policy. The company is possibly open to letting customers decide if they want to hold the domain or not. Mitchell wants ICANN to act on cracking down on "real" frontrunning. That way, according to Mitchell, Network Solutions would not have to resort to this policy.

    As a result, in October, 2007, ICANN mentioned that it was investigating accusations of frontrunning. For one, the corporation was soliciting for feedback from the Internet community. It wanted users to submit these accusations as evidence of frontrunning. ICANN mentioned that there was a lack of regulation on frontrunning. So it admitted that there was a need for stronger standards to be implemented within the registrar community.

    Perhaps actions will be taken now since the Internet community is speaking out about these domain registrar companies' practices. The Internet is supposed to be a community of openness and freedom. Customers should have options when it comes to registering domain names, just as they have them in other areas of e-commerce. Customers should not be held hostage to certain companies. They should be free to shop around.

    Customers understand the importance of security. No doubt, they not only want it, but demand it. If security is an issue when it comes to holding domain names, then it's up to the domain registrar company to come up with better security measures, not penalize customers.
