Full Title or Meme

The Domain Name is purchased from a registrar that is licensed by ICANN to be part of the Domain Name System.

Context

Problems

  • The mapping from a Domain Name to a legal entity starts with the registrar's entry. But from there it can migrate in unforeseen ways.
  • The Me2B alliance started to map some of the ways that Domain Names can be left dangling and then snapped up by fraudsters.[1]
