.ly Domain Questionable?

Post by The Cynergist » Fri Oct 15, 2010 4:00 am

I came across this article in the Warrior Forum and I wondered if anyone could tell me if it's really something to be concerned about:

"The .ly TLD belongs to Libya, and recently the Libyan
government has been canceling domains because they are
not compatible with local laws" (Original Article)

Apparently, this is something that could cause our links to stop working.

I think adfly should open a .com domain

"compatible with local laws"

This is another very good reason why adf.ly does not allow adult links, or linking from adult sites as this would NOT be compatible with local laws.

I personally don't think this will be a problem for URL shorteners that are compatible with local laws.

But we do also have 2 .bb domains that you can use.

ALSO coming soon you will be able to add your own domains to adf.ly

I thought the article meant that just using the .ly domain goes against local laws. Plus I don't understand which local laws are we talking about? Do they mean laws in Libya? So am I to understand that anything of a mature nature goes against the laws of Libya?

What country do these come from?

How soon?

Not sure about that, but in the terms and conditions of registering a .ly domain it explicitly said, you may not use the domain for adult content (or someone of that meaning, actually can't find it now).

In the Terms and Conditions stated when registering a .ly domain -

Code: Select all

3.5 The Applicant certifies that, to the best of his/her knowledge the domain name is not being registered for any activities/purpose not permitted under Libyan law.
So this is nothing new, but maybe they are enforcing it more recently.

Vb.ly was a domain that was seized recently and it was an 'adult' URL shortener, so they should have done their homework first.

.bb domains come from Barbados.

So why the foreign domains?

Because of the length of the domain. I'm think I am right in saying a 1 or 2 letter .com domain would cost millions.

We can add a pretty generic .com domain, this not a problem.

.LY domain is a lovely neighbourhood.
I recommend " https://reg.ly ". I have a couple of domains registered with them.
They are an accredited registrar
