The release of the .web extension is causing quite some difficulties. This has everything to do with the way Verisign acquired the management for this extension.

Verisign, who also manages .com and .net, gained the management of .web by hiding behind a third party, namely Nu Dot Co, the administrator of the .co extension. Other interested parties to manage .web were amongst others Donuts and Afilias (the manager of .info).
