Framework to Address Abuse of the DNS


Afilias is pleased to join our fellow DNS industry leaders in supporting the Framework to Address Abuse of the DNS. You can download and read the full Framework document here. DNS abuse undermines confidence in the global internet and we all have a role to play in keeping the internet as safe as it can be. We believe the Framework published today is an important step in moving the discussion forward.

Afilias has long been proactive as an expert in defeating DNS abuse in the TLDs in our care. Abuse in any area of the Internet eco-system is something we take very seriously and we devote considerable resources above and beyond our contractual requirements to ICANN. Afilias is eager to contribute our knowledge in cooperation with the rest of the community to make the Internet a more trusted space.

We are encouraged by the clarity these discussions have provided the community and look forward to future conversations leading to actionable steps to address potential abuse. We welcome anyone who can add value to these discussions to start a dialogue with us on Twitter @Afilias #aBetterDNS.
