Afilias to Consider Proposals for Allocation of 1 & 2 Letter INFO Domains

by Frank Michlick in Categories: Registries, Up to the Minute

Afilias just announced that they are accepting proposals for single and double character .INFO domains. Applications have to be submitted with non-refundable $1,000 fee and have to be received before 12:00 UTC on 30 April 2011. The registry operator  reserves the right, to reject proposals that are received after the submission deadline or are deficient or incomplete.

The proposal form and additional details can be found on the Afilias Website.

Afilias had used a similar process for the allocation of unassigned .INFO sunrise domains, however never published the final results of the process. DNN knows of at least two applications that received a rejection from that allocation phase without receiving what the applications consider a proper explanation.

[Update] Afilias has removed the description of the re-allocation process for unassigned .INFO sunrise domains from their site along with the list of domains. DNN archived the information.

“DNN knows of at least two applications…” ?

I’ll add my name to that; which makes “at least three”, and I’m betting there’s many more…there were several extensions to the deadline, then poor communication, no feedback/follow-up on their website…very poorly managed process indeed if you ask me. Needless to say I won’t be putting my ($1000!) ring in the hat this time around.

And who would want a it is too long to be considered short.

I also think that it is not “correct” work of them, seems they only want to make money, do you know any successful allocations?
