Just received an e-mail from TrafficZ that Yahoo has started capping revenue to certain TLDs:
Dear Valued TrafficZ Client,
In an effort to keep you up-to-date on all matters concerning your account, we would like to inform you that Yahoo!, our primary upstream provider, has recently imposed a revenue cap on certain TLDs. The affected TLDs include:
The new, conservative revenue cap was rolled out early this morning and will be imposed on a per domain, per day basis. Specifically, if a particular domain in one of the above-referenced TLDs exceeds the revenue cap on any given day, Yahoo! listings will cease to be displayed on that domain for the following three days, at which point they will resume displaying as normal.This change was made across the board and will affect all Yahoo! partners.
TrafficZ strives to provide you with the best domain monetization services possible. We will continue to keep you abreast of any changes as they arise. If you have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our Client Relations team at support@TrafficZ.com.

Ran into an article today titled: “How To Stop Domain Names Being Seized By The US Government“. I figured it was worthwhile to post it up here for everyone else to read .
As the United States authorities continue with their domain name seizure policy, file-sharing, streaming and link site operators around the world are looking for ways to mitigate this aggressive action. To this end, an Internet engineer and website operator has put together a guide that might just help site owners avoid a whole heap of inconvenience in the future.
This week, an ever more familiar picture started to emerge, the third such situation in well under a year. US authorities had begun another round of domain name seizures, this time against sites connected with sports streaming.

Looks like everyone is going to try and jump on the bandwagon and pickup more sales with GoDaddy’s .co SuperBowl commercial tomorrow.
It’s going to be interesting to see what will happen to .co’s reputation/recognition after the GoDaddy commercial.
*As Michael has posted on TheDomains.com, .co prices are set to drop in price tonight (to $11.99) at 8PM from certain registrars.

Russia’s official IDN for ‘.ru’ (or in this case, RF) .РФ has been golden in its opening hours to the public receiving more than 200,000 registrations.
A very impressive start for something that many people have questioned.
The domain name рф (romanized as rf) is the internationalized country code top-level domain in the Domain Name System of the Internet for the Russian Federation. In the Domain Name System it has the ASCII DNS name xn--p1ai. The domain accepts only Cyrillic subdomain applications, and is the first Cyrillic implementation of the Internationalizing Domain Names in Applications (IDNA) system. The domain became operational on May 13, 2010.
Also worth noting that рф.com was sold earlier this year for $60,000 to an anonymous buyer.
