ACADEMIC internet association SANET threatened to take legal action against EuroWeb Slovakia, the administrator of Slovak top level internet domains (internet domains with the ending ".sk").
SANET claimed that EuroWeb was an unreliable company that fails to fulfil its obligations, news wire SITA reported.
EuroWeb started deactivating internet domains not registered in the company's SK-NIC system on November 3. During the first eight days, the company deactivated 10,804 domains, threatening to sell them if the domain users fail to pre-register [and agree to pay an annual fee of Sk600 (€14.70)] by the end of January.
SANET claims that EuroWeb has no mandate to deactivate Slovak internet domains, and that no single private company can control the ".sk" domain.
