DNS Abuse –malware, botnets, phishing, pharming, and spam – is a growing and ongoing global threat to every country’s national and economic security. In the last months, the DNS Abuse Institute has worked to bring together – both in public forums and individual meetings – leading experts to help guide the creation of a roadmap for combating abuse.
PIR is on a mission to improve the domain name space for fellow registries, registrars and registrants. More than a year and a half ago – in May 2019 – the .org registry introduced the Quality Performance Index, or QPI. In doing so, they created a roadmap to identify best practices and incentives for registrars to reduce abuse rates and increase renewals of .ORGs.
Public Interest Registry announced Wednesday the launch of the DNS Abuse Institute as part of its ongoing efforts to protect Internet users from the threat of DNS Abuse such as malware, botnets, phishing, pharming and spam.
