Hi Gabor, First off, this is a hot debate in the RIPE DNS working group (dns-rw at ripe.net), and I suggest followups to be sent there. I know that at least for the NL TLD, it is required that one is registered in the Chambers of Commerce. (I hope piet^H^H^H^Hhostmaster does not mind this translation from the Dutch guidelines ;-) Geert Jan On Thu, 9 Nov 1995 17:45:21 +0100 Gabor Kiss wrote: > There is a hot debate in Hungary.
