Afilias plans to file IRP to halt .Web

A lawyer for domain name registry Afilias says the company plans to file a Cooperative Engagement Process (CEP) and subsequent Independent Review Process (IRP) should ICANN move forward with delegating .Web to Nu Dot Co.

Nu Dot Co won the auction to operate .web for $135 million. It was bankrolled by Verisign (NASDAQ:VRSN), and Nu Dot Co had an agreement with Verisign to assign rights to the domain after it completed contracting.

Afilias was one of the companies that was upset; it was the runner-up in the auction.

Donuts pursued the matter as well. It was disappointed that Nu Dot Co forced an auction of last resort rather than a private auction in which Donuts would get to split the proceeds. After going through ICANN’s accountability processes it sued ICANN. A court tossed the case out because new TLD applicants agreed not to sue, but Donuts appealed. The appeals court has yet to hand down its decision. Oral arguments will likely occur this fall.
