.org registry to introduce “Quality Performance Index” to rate its registrars

  • “The worse a registrar is at tackling abuse, the more likely it is to be excluded from promotions in the .org space”, says a new policy from Public Interest Registry.
  • The .org registry said today that it is introducing a new “Quality Performance Index” to rate its registrars according to the quality of their registrations according to three criteria: abuse takedown, renewal rates, and domain usage. Those that score above a certain threshold will be pre-qualified for promotions. The others will be encouraged to talk to their PIR rep about things they could do to get their scores up.
  • This kind of mechanism would make it relatively easy to separate conscientious corporate citizens from fly-by-night spam-friendly jerks which would have a great contribution in keeping .org a relatively healthy zone.
