Dynamic Dolphin A spammers choice

As the domain industry grows so does the underbelly of the industry,  spamming increasing and with less restrictions from registrars becoming a major problem.

Out of the 15,000 spam-advertised domains we examined, nearly half — 7,142 names — were registered through a Broomfield, Colo. company called Dynamic Dolphin. As I noted in my previous story, Dynamic Dolphin is the seventh most-popular registrar among spammers who provide patently false information in their public WHOIS records.

Data collected by Knujon, an anti-spam outfit that tries to convince registrars to deep-six spam sites, shows that spammers are increasingly registering sites through a handful of domain privacy services that refuse to provide a direct method to contact domain holders.
