    Country-Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) Fighting Intensifies in .sk
    posted by michael on Thursday November 20 2003, @07:38AM

    SANET, an academic Interent association has threatened to sue EuroWeb Slovakia if it continues to deactivate .sk domain names not registered in the SK-NIC system.

    EuroWeb started deactivating domains not registered in the SK-NIC system on November 3. During the first eight days the company deactivated 10,804 domains, threatening that if the domain users would not register (and agree to pay an annual fee of SKK 600) by the end of January, their domains would be sold. According to EuroWeb, the reason for the new mandatory registration system was the technical inadequacy of the previous system.



    SITA Slovenska Tlacova Agentura reports that the SANET Board of Trustees says that EuroWeb Slovakia has no mandate to deactivate Slovak Internet domains and that EuroWeb has failed to fulfill obligations resulting from its agreements with SANET.

    The SANET Board of Trustees is therefore reportedly asking the SK-NIC council, ministries of education and telecommunications to replace the Slovak top-level domain administrator. Earlier on Wednesday the SK-NIC council requested EuroWeb to recognize it as an advisory body representing the Slovak Internet community in administrating Slovak Internet domains.

    According to the report, the SK-NIC council has five members, representing the Association of Internet Providers, Association of Web-Hosting Providers, SANET, the Cabinet Office and ICANN.

    Is this the first case of an ICANN representative sitting on a ccTLD advisory council? Does this create any issues if there is a re-delegation request?

    Does anyone know when the .su (Soviet Union) ccTLD will be removed from the root zone?

    Cheers,
