Top Level Domain ‘.WEB’ Being Fought Over

February 24, 1997 in News

As the IAHC tries to add seven new TLDs to the online world, web designer and domain owner Chris Ambler claims ownership of one of the proposed TLDs, the .web domain. Ambler purchased the .web domain through AlterNic, a self-proclaimed registry hoping to overpass IAHC’s standards, and claims that IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) granted the name as well. Now, with financial backing, Ambler plans to fight to preserve the name and may sue the 11-member committee to stop their plans for turning .web into a new TLD.
