Wildcarding Controversy and Typosquatting
In 2006, the .cm Registry set up a wild card DNS record for all unregistered .cm domains, in partnership with Canadian domain investor Kevin Ham. This arrangement redirected traffic on all unregistered domains to a parking page with pay-per-click ads, agoga.com. Subsequent .CM auctions generated millions of dollars in revenues.
In 2009, McAfee designated .cm as the riskiest namespace with 36.7% of .cm websites posing a security risk to web users.
Reform and Redelegation Efforts
In December 2010, the government of Cameroon passed Law No. 2010/13, which among other things placed management of the .cm ccTLD in the hands of the National Agency for Information and Communication Technologies (ANTIC).. While it appears that ANTIC intended to initiate a redelegation request with IANA, IANA has no record of a request. CAMTEL is still listed on IANA's delegation record. However, none of the contact information is valid, and camnet.cm no longer resolves. The NIC.cm site run by ANTIC appears to be the operating registry.
