I asked a question that was closed, migrated, then rejected.
Suppose I were to purchase a new domain of
.financial, hence my email would be
What assurances are there that the root name server, the registrar infrastructure will be in place for X years?
What financial backing exists to insure their operation for those X years?
Solve for X. ;)
In my perspective this has implications with fault tolerance, SSL certificates, spoofing, and risks involved in a change-of-control of a TLD.
Suppose china buys all the non profitable TLDs, such as
.financial. My hard links wouldn't have the same security guarantees as first offered. DNSSec, DANE Certificates and more will make the most prudent end user unaware of the change in security.
Where should this question go?
