<p class="MsoNormal">Hello all,<br>
<br>
an article this summer: <a href="https://www.networkworld.com/article/2956590/security/netsols-new-con-renewing-unwanted-xyz-domains.html">
https://www.networkworld.com/article/2956590/security/netsols-new-con-renewing-unwanted-xyz-domains.html</a><br>
<br>
Why do we keep on reading such articles when so much work is going into protecting registrants?<br>
<br>
BTW looking at the latest new GTLD Statistics, there has been a marked decrease in new gTLD registrations as .xyz promotional / 0.02c registrations have elapsed in August.<br>
<a href="https://ntldstats.com/tld/xyz">https://ntldstats.com/tld/xyz</a> - yes that's a drop from 5m registrations to approx 2.6m.<br>
<br>
Kindest regards,<br>
