Walmart wants the domain name Walmart.LGBT! They recently came out against the “Anti-LGBT Bill“, a piece of legislation in Arkansas where Walmart is headquartered that “opponents say sanctions discrimination against gays and lesbians”.
An open-source hardware project aimed at making the internet "a little bit safer" needs an influx of cash to continue its work... A group of engineers decided there needed to be an open-source hardware engine that could provide strong and reliable encryption and decryption for email, plus public-private key cryptography for all sorts of things from digitally signing messages and files to DNSSEC. Afilias is one of the sponsors for this industry initiative - the CrypTech project.
“You can register anything you want in a domain name,” sums up Karl Kronenberger, a partner at the Internet law firm Kronenberger Rosenfeld....These rules can vary by domain, of course, since each domain is managed by a different company. (Monolith Registry, the company that manages .vote and .voto, bans deceptive names and swears to vet all site registrants diligently.)
True organic companies that have been certified can now have a web address ending with the word “organic” to stand out above the untruthful competitors while guiding their customers. It’s simple, descriptive, and powerful.
Internet se ha transformado en ese inmenso océano de información en el que todos abrevamos, el genio todopoderoso que tiene todas las respuestas. Pero también –o quizás por ello mismo– se ha vuelto tierra fértil para sembrar la confusión y el caos. Y el campo de la política, ciertamente, se presta para eso. Dado que los sitios web pueden ser registrados por cualquier persona y usados para cualquier fin, no es raro encontrar en este rubro sitios engañosos o apócrifos, cuya única razón de ser es la de boicotear la comunicación de los políticos con sus potenciales seguidores. Esto fue lo que motivó a crear dos nuevos gTLDs, o extensiones de dominio de primer nivel: así como ya existen los clásicos .com, .net o .gob, a partir del 13 de enero contamos con la extensión .vote y su equivalente español/italiano/portugués .voto, pensados para ayudar a gobiernos, candidatos y partidos políticos a acercar su información a los votantes.
Out Now’s site was the first allocated .LGBT name to go live on the .LGBT domain. Out Now chose to premiere their .LGBT web address to release a free global workplace diversity report from their LGBT2020 research about the need for business to better look after their LGBT employees.
PinkNews has become one of the first organisations on the internet to launch a .lgbt domain, PinkNews.lgbt. The new top-level domain – which is an alternative to conventional domains such as .co.uk – is currently being rolled out.
#Boom Magazine is proud to partner with four pioneer companies around the world in launching the first-of-its-kind lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) specific top level domain (TLD). Whether fostering community or advocating for equality, visibility remains key - and this new queer identified platform offers just that.
One of the proudest things of my lifetime, is witnessing the growing acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the United States. While hatred and discrimination still exist, it is far less nowadays. Heck, the number of states that allow gay marriage is increasing all of the time, while more and more people are being open-minded about gender. Yesterday, a monumental thing is happened on the Internet — the .LGBT domain launched to the public.
Rainbow flags. Gay cruises. Logo. Domain names? While the Internet has played a central role in the community for many years by providing a space to share information, meet other community members and grow LGBT-owned businesses, creating an “.LGBT” domain had never been conceived of until recently.
