Major Registrar Rescinds Some Domain Application, Focusing on Partner Services

Go Daddy, a large Internet domain registrar and Web hosting firm, announced it has withdrawn its applications for two new generic top-level domains that the company would control to focus on providing services to its registry partners. The company had applied to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to for the domains .home and .casa. By not administering new domains, Go Daddy says it will be better able to focus on its registry and hosting customers, stated Richard Merdinger, Go Daddy’s vice president for domain-registration services. The company is continuing its application for the domain .godaddy, which it plans to use for its products. ( Central)(The Web Host Industry Review)
