PW Registry Corporation, the official Registry for .PW domain names, today announced that it will start officially accepting registrations for .PW domains on December 15 at 12pm.
PW, also called ‘Privacy Web’, is designed for individuals and groups and offers spam-free email forwarding and personal domain names. The PW Registry, which runs the .pw domain for the Pacific Island nation of Palau, provides a system for users to obtain a meaningful email address and then blocking spam to their selected address. According to the company, by deploying spam blocking technology close to the internet’s root servers maintained by ICANN and Verisign, spammers are prevented from gaining access to .pw email addresses.
“There is a privacy epidemic on the internet and consumers are fed up.” He continues, “With leadership and support from Palau, we’ve come up with the Internet’s first and only domain extension designed to protect the privacy of individuals. The consumer is in control of who can send them email.” says Tom Barrett, CEO of PW Registry.
