Observers believed that the new rules could result in hundreds of new top-level domains to be registered. During the 32nd International Public ICANN Meeting in Paris in 2008, ICANN started a new process of TLD naming policy to take a “significant step forward on the introduction of new generic top-level domains. ” This program envisions the availability of many new or already proposed domains, as well as a new application and implementation process.

In October 1998, following pressure from the growing domain name registration business and other interested parties, NSI’s agreement with the United States Department of Commerce was amended. This system officially commenced service on November 30, 1999 under the supervision of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), although there had been several testbed registrars using the system since March 11, 1999. Since then, over 900 registrars have entered the market for domain name registration services.

SiteFinder, at first, assumed every Internet query was for a website, and it monetized queries for incorrect domain names, taking the user to VeriSign’s search site. For example, at a public meeting with VeriSign to air technical concerns about SiteFinder, numerous people, active in the IETF and other technical bodies, explained how they were surprised by VeriSign’s changing the fundamental behavior of a major component of Internet infrastructure, not having obtained the customary consensus. Net domains to a VeriSign webpage. Critics often claim abuse of administrative power over domain names.

Particularly noteworthy was the VeriSign Site Finder system which redirected all unregistered.

In addition to the function of domain name registry operator, it was also the sole registrar for these domains.
