Y ahora también puedes hacer campaña: .vote

Blog Dominios Blog Dominios: Imagen: internet.com El .vote se ha convertido en un nuevo dominio que se ha lanzado al ciberespacio con el propósito de ser útil a webs que se dediquen a servicios de encuestas, opinión, mercados… o de cualquier otra temática similar. También se ha visto que podrían resultar interesantes para páginas enfocadas a los últimos estrenos de películas, planes de fin de semana, opiniones políticas… Con el paso del tiempo cada vez va a ser más habitual encontrar portales con estas y otras temáticas. Y la certeza de que los usuarios que accedan conocerán de antemano de qué va el proyecto. Se trata de una alternativa válida para poner en marcha una plataforma que permita llevar a cabo votaciones online, fundamentalmente dirigidas a una audiencia de habla inglesa (que es de las más numerosas del planeta). Desde el punto de vista técnico, la extensión .vote, al contrario que lo que sucede con la gran mayoría de nuevos dominios, no soporta caracteres IDN ni tampoco Whois Privados. La extensión de los dominios debe comprender entre 3 y 63 caracteres, y el registro siempre tiene carácter inmediato. No poseen requerimientos técnicos específicos ni de residencia para su registro. Si eres un candidato a [...]

Dell Loses Key Customer Support Domain Name for a Month, Site Exposed to Questionable Content

CircleID CircleID: The website designated by Dell Inc. to help customers recover from malicious software and other computer maladies may have been hijacked for a few weeks this summer by people who specialize in deploying said malware, reports Brian Krebs in KrebsOnSecurity. "Sometime this summer, DellBackupandRecoveryCloudStorage.com was suddenly snatched away from a longtime Dell contractor for a month and exposed to some questionable content. More worryingly, there are signs the domain may have been pushing malware before Dell’s contractor regained control over it. ... It’s not yet clear how or why DellBackupandRecoveryCloudStorage.com got away ... But someone at SoftThinks apparently forgot to renew the domain in mid-June 2017."

Why you should keep your domain hosting separate from your site builder (rant edition)

I Want My Name I Want My Name: Behind the curtain, writing about domain names is tricky because even the basics are foreign concepts to most people. Just look at this title — what the heck does keeping domain hosting separate from a site builder mean? Would a non-tech-savvy chef know what that means when trying to build a website for his or her restaurant?
Probably not. So let’s break it down.
The starting point for any website is a domain name — somethingsomething.com, somethingsomething.nz, somethingsomething.pizza, etc.
The way we believe the internet should work is that you get your domain from a domain registrar (like us), then point your domain to your website host, wherever that may be. The metaphor we like to use is that we provide the land, and you should be able to freely build anything you want on it.
The internet, and really, the world, is going through a shift though. As a small, independent domain registrar with no VC funding, we can choose to be what some would call a lifestyle company. We can value happiness (customer and employee) over profits, because our goal isn’t to satisfy investors looking for endless growth.
The big internet players are playing a different game though. To satisfy their investors, they have to grow. Always. Big domain registrars are creating email systems, site builders, and business services to extract more dollars from each customer. And big site builders, to compete for those same dollars, are now selling domains. On the surface, it’s all in the name of convenience, but what happens when your real estate agent becomes the exclusive home builder on your land, or if your home builder requires you to use their real estate company?
You get locked in.
When your site builder owns your domain, you can’t just make a platform change if they start to fall behind on the design front — you have to completely transfer your domain (which hopefully won’t result in a very real site outage). And if your site is built on a system designed by your registrar, what happens if you stop liking your registrar policies? You’d have to dump your website as well.
Not to pick on a particular brand (which means I’m going to pick on a brand), but when you start consolidating services, you stifle innovation and lock consumers into limited choices. Your eclectic, innovative town becomes a Wal-Mart town where price trumps quality and specialized services give way to impersonal, neon-lit superstore departments. It’s a constant race to the bottom, all to satisfy investors.
Consolidation isn’t the dream of the internet. Consolidation creates lobbying groups that make the internet less open. So resist it. Keep your domain separate from your site builders, support domain registrars that specialize in domain registration, and always be on the lookout for new site builders with big dreams.
