The competition between the various ICANN accredited registrars has been tough for quite some time.
All you need to do is look at the pricing being offered by some of the companies, along with the various other enticements they use to attract new registrants and resellers, to get an idea of how tough the market has become.
However I never thought I would see an ICANN accredited registrar resorting to comment spam.
Unfortunately one registrar does not seem to see spamming blogs with their special offers as being an issue.
Todaynic have attempted to spam this site and several others that I run.
On each occassion they’ve targetted posts related to domains (which on this site wouldn’t take much effort)
The question is who can do anything about it?
Is ICANN in a position to give a registrar engaged in this sort of activity a slap on the wrists?
If ICANN can’t take action against them, is there someone else who can?
