What is the Internic and why they want your money?

The Internic (Internet Network Information Center) was formed in 1993 and it is an organization that, among other things, assigns names for the Internet within specific domains. Domains are portions of the Internet reserved for particular kinds of uses. The Internic assigns names within the COM, NET, ORG and EDU domains and these four domains are used for commercial activities, for network companies, for nonprofit organizations, and for educational institutions respectively. The Internic does not assign names in the GOV domain, (used for US government,) the MIL domain (used for US military,) and for any of the domains, other than the ones mentioned above, outside the US such as CA for Canada, and FR for France. In the US, Network Solutions is used to assign the domain names within these domains.

Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy: (as approved by ICANN on October 4,1999)
