Donuts to use Architelos’ Namesentry

October 10th, 2012 Comments off

BELLEVUE, Wash. — Architelos, Inc., a domain name industry consulting and managed services provider and Donuts Inc., a registry for new generic top-level domain names (gTLDs), said today Donuts will adopt NameSentry, Architelos’ software-as-a-service platform for detecting and mitigating domain name abuse.

The patent-pending NameSentry application protects new gTLDs from phishing, malware, spam, botnets and other types of abuse. Already operational, it’s the first independent, third-party resource of its kind for the domain name industry.

“In our gTLD applications, we detailed eight new stringent mechanisms for protecting rights holders and combating potential abuse, protections that intentionally exceed those required by ICANN,” said Donuts co-founder and CEO Paul Stahura. “NameSentry gives us another set of tools to gather data and quickly mitigate any problems.”

Stahura said the system is impressive thanks to its range of capability and ease of implementation. “NameSentry gives us the additional benefit of Architelos’ experience in abuse prevention, ready to be put to use.

“We are thrilled to be selected by Donuts,” said Architelos founder and CEO Alexa Raad. “By adding NameSentry to their extensive set of protection mechanisms, Paul and his team are very clear that they won’t tolerate abuse. As the largest applicant by number of applied-for gTLDs, working with Donuts is a significant opportunity for Architelos to help ensure new namespace is safe for all users.”

Paul Stahura launched eNom in 1997 from an ISDN line in his garage in Redmond Washington. The company now is part of Demand Media and Paul was a CSO as well as a member of the board. After 12 years, he is now leaving the company. Here is what he writes on Facebook:

After much thought, and 12 years after founding eNom, I’ve decided to join the ranks of eNom alumni. Demand Media, the company I sold eNom to nearly four years ago, is a great company and will be even greater in the years to come. Truly “going big”… Huge. The board, the management team, the employees – everyone – our customers, our services, are top notch. Demand is still in the first innings, but its time for me to move on. I look forward to working with Demand in the future, just not as an employee, and to keeping in touch with you all. Very best of luck to everyone at eNom and Demand Media! So long for now, Paul

DNN wishes Paul all the best for his future plans.
