I’m considering sending a formal complaint to ICANN and IANA against BTTB. I’ll be meeting ICANN officials in February, and I’ll surely discuss about BTTB’s mismanagement of .BD ccTLD.

Here’s what raged my anger: I wanted to register a domain that expired over a year ago, but BTTB officials told me that it’s not possible if I’m not the “original” registrant. According to their dumb rule, anyone who registers a .BD domain becomes the “owner” of that domain for life. Even if he doesn’t pay the yearly due it’ll be marked as a registered domain and BTTB won’t allow anyone else to register it. Can BTTB get any more dumber than this? Do they understand how the domain registry business works?
