eTLD

Post by Vednier » Wed Apr 23, 2008 3:57 pm

I have some questions about eTLD (extended Top Level Domains) support in WOT.
In russia, we have some general eTLD like spb.ru, org.ru, net.ru and over. As you can now, this eTLD works itself as domain zone, free of paid to registed domain name and historically works as the way to "categorize" site.
In example, *.spb.ru - eTLD for sited related to St. Petersburg, *.msk.ru - sites related to Moscow.
At present time WOT don,t make difference between plain 2-level domain and eTLD. Some pupils ranked some sites in eTLD zone as "bad" and now almost ALL sites in eTLD zones marked as "bad".
In one hand royalty-free domains in eTLD is host to spam, and phishing (not really presented in Russia), but in other hand, any location related via eTLD site automatically become "bad".
I think. WOT must not threat eTL as standart domain and must no inherit ruputation of eTLD to it's successors

Yes, we support eTLDs. For the .ru TLD, our system currently considers only .com.ru, .net.ru, .org.ru, .pp.ru, and .int.ru to be effective TLDs. Can you point us to a list of other second level domains under .ru that should be treated similarly?

for anyone else insterested in learning about eTLDs:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.uk#Second-level_domains
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=299051

That bugzilla cgi URL outputs a textfile.
I believe its data represents the 'final draft' used in implementing eTLD recognition/support by the forthcoming Firefox v3 browser.

Actually, here's the latest version of that file and it's also missing the .ru eTLDs.

WOT now recognizes the geographic names for .ru.
