Political Side of ccTLD Domain Investing


AE DomainsThis isn’t a political blog, and I hate politics anyway, so I don’t have any additional commentary to provide on this topic, but I thought this notice was interesting:

“Due to the governing law of the UAE: Israeli entities and individuals are not eligible for .ae domain names.”

Aside from countries that require the registrant to live in the particular country of the ccTLD, are there any other domain registration restrictions like the one above?

    the UAE is an entirely different country run by laws vastly different than the US or Canada. No surpise here.

    Exactly 70 years ago on September 1, 1939, Hitler’s Germany invaded Poland, in what would later end with the Holocaust.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Until recently they wouldn’t let you register gambling or ‘adult’ names, either.

    Last thing we need is a jew registering middleastsucks.ae.

    I don’t like the jew to register the domain either. He takes all the good ones and oppressor of the domain.
