Has the time come to redelegate IE namespace?

IEDR logoMichele Neylon believes the time may have come for the current .ie registry operator to be changed, believing that while the current registry operator, IEDR, has improved over the last few years, it “is probably not the best organisation to manage the ccTLD in the future.”

Reasons given for a change of registry are the lack of policy development and decisions made by the registry that have impacted negatively on registrars and registrants, as well as ambiguous registration rules that are open to interpretation.

To look at Michele’s reasoning for a change in registry operator, see his blog at www.isquattedyour.eu/2008/09/29/has-the-time-come-to-redelegate-ie-namespace.
