Company tells domain name overseer that it doesn’t want .Honeywell anymore.
American conglomerate Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has decided it doesn’t want to run its own top level domain name after all.
The company informed (pdf) ICANN last month that it wishes to terminate its agreement to run .honeywell as a top level domain name. The company never used the domain; the only second level domain name it registered under .Honeywell was the obligatory nic.honeywell.
.Honeywell was the only domain name the conglomerate applied for.
The company joins others that have belatedly decided they didn’t want to operate new top level domains, including McDonald’s and Emerson.
