"One of the internet’s most lucrative and high-profile registry contracts is up for grabs – and once again the bidding process appears to be highly problematic.

The contract to run .tv has been held by dot-com operator Verisign for 20 years. This agreement expires this year, and Tuvalu, the small island state that owns the top-level domain, has decided to seek a rebid..............

Very funny :xf.wink:

Something smells fishy with this process......

You have Godaddy, Centralnic, Verisign and Donuts - how many of these have "experience transitioning at least 5 TLDs, and at least 5 ccTLDs, with at least 3 transitions of TLDs over 1 million domain names."?

Seems Ethos Capital who have a major stake in Donuts and got caught with their pants down with the .org fiasco are trying some other shenanigans?
