Verisign and the Gab controversy were top stories last month.
Last month’s headlines were dominated by news related to the U.S. government extending the Cooperative Agreement with Verisign. Let’s start by reviewing the top five posts on DNW in November, ranked by views:
1. Who wins, who loses from Trump Admin decision on domain names – You’re going to see a common theme emerge among the top stories. In this post, I reviewed the winners and losers from the decision to let Verisign increase prices on .com domain names.
2. Holy sh!t…Verisign just called out “Domain Scalpers” and its biggest customers – Just a day after getting U.S. approval to raise prices, Verisign threw domain investors under the bus.
3. U.S. Gov Grants Verisign .Com Price Hikes – If you don’t know the background for the first two stories, read this one.
4. Pennsylvania Attorney General subpoenas Epik over Gab.com domain name – Epik decided to accept Gab.com at its registrar and was repaid with a subpoena.
