WebTechs Loses Domain Name To Porn Site

April 09, 1999 in News

WebTechs, created in 1994 and one of the very first HTML validation services lost its domain name, webtechs.com to a Danish pornography site. Webtechs has filed complaints with Network Solutions, who still holds the monopoly on domain name registration, and with InterNIC, the domain name system used by Network Solutions. The company claims that Webtech’s domain was up for renewal and that failure to pay their registration fee caused them to lose the domain, leaving it up for grabs.
