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.
Hot on the heels of the Sri Lankan edition last month, the Internet Society's ION Conference (sponsored by Afilias) is coming to Trinidad and Tobago later this week, where experts will outline the business case for IPv6 and Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC), as well as Transport Layer Security (TLS), "BCP38" anti-spoofing filtering, and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) security.
The Internet Society is hoping to speed up deployment of some key Internet standards through a series of conferences being held globally, sponsored by Afilias. The approach involves getting network operators that aren't yet deploying IPv6, DNSSEC, Secure BGP, anti-spoofing and more into the room with those that are, to share experiences.
The Internet Society Deploy360 Programme announced it will extend the discussion of emerging technology issues to more countries and promote technology dialogue at a local level through the addition of regions to its 2015 ION Conference Series, sponsored by Afilias.
The web is seeing an explosion in alternatives to dot-com: now, you can be dot-church, dot-expert or even dot-ninja. But a Montgomery County company is behind one of the newest names with a specific audience in mind. It’s .lgbt…
A newly available Web domain is beginning to be adopted by organic groups and companies... ".ORGANIC." It is only available to companies that sell at least some certified organic products, or are legitimate players in the organic industry. A survey commissioned by Afilias shows the public may actually value this distinction being made when visiting Web sites.
