Which domain names are important?
Domain name expertise experts say they have identified more than 150 domains with important domain meaning.
The experts are trying to determine if they are related to one another or not, and how they are being used.
“If it’s a legitimate domain, it’s worth paying for it, it has value, and it’s not being used for spamming,” said Kevin Kostas, chief marketing officer at Domain Knowledge.
“I think you’d have to have a really good reason for doing that, otherwise it would be a waste of time.”
Domain experts say that if a domain is in use in an illegal manner, it should be removed.
“It has a very bad reputation, especially for child pornography,” said Domainsource.
“We don’t know how many legitimate domain names that are used for child porn, but it’s very small percentage.
So if it’s the worst one, it would have to be removed.”
The experts believe the reason for using child pornography domains is to trick users into clicking on links.
“The people who are going to click on those links are often kids, they’re often under 13 years old,” said Kostases.
“They’re often using them to download movies and to download content that’s really not safe to download.”
Experts say the number of domains with child pornography content is likely in the thousands, but the researchers are concerned about how many people are using them and whether they are actually using them for child exploitation.
“What we really want to do is find out what the intent is behind the use of those domains, and if it really is child pornography, we need to take steps to remove them,” said Dr. David Levenson, a computer science professor at the University of British Columbia and one of the experts.
“A lot of times it’s just a simple spam campaign to trick people into clicking a link, but when that link takes them to a website where it actually contains child pornography they should be concerned,” said Levensons research director.
“But I think there’s no doubt that there are a lot of websites that have this type of content.”
Domain expertise experts are also concerned about the misuse of the term “family”.
Domain experts are concerned that using the term family means the domain is associated with a child.
“This is a common thing people are doing,” said Tom Schoenberg, president and CEO of Domain Knowledge, adding that it is also associated with child abuse and violence.
“Anytime a child is harmed in a relationship, the first thing to be done is to take immediate action to stop that from happening.”
However, experts say there are several ways that users can find the meaning of the domain name without using any advanced techniques.
If the user wants to find out if the domain has any keywords related to family, they can search the web for a domain that has the word family in the domain.
If a user searches for “family,” he or she will find the following site.
The search results suggest that a family domain is available for a variety of keywords, including “family.”
The “family” keyword is used to describe a relationship between two individuals or groups of individuals.
Domain experts said the term should not be used in the same sentence as child pornography.
“You can use the term, but you should not use the word child pornography to describe it,” said Schoenbegs research director, adding the term is a synonym for “adult content.”
A person who wants to use the same name as child porn may not find it useful, he said.
“There’s a whole category of domain names called family names, and you don’t want to be associated with any of those.”
In some cases, the experts believe that a person who uses the domain in a way that is inappropriate will have the domain removed from the Internet.
“Just because somebody uses a name that doesn’t mean they have any intention of using it in a sexual way,” said Krebs.
“And if you want to make it illegal, there’s ways that you can do that, and the courts will make sure that the domain gets removed.”
However the experts say, if the person who is using the domain to commit child exploitation has a valid reason for it.
“Sometimes the reasons are not clear,” said Keene.
“Maybe they are using it to hide some sort of illicit activity or maybe they are just using it for business.”
