    The BCCI's domains

    A year ago, I wrote about the ICC's domains.

    I found the BCCI's ratings and awards site today. A 'WHOIS' lookup reveals quite a few things.
    Registrant:
    Johnson Cherian
    Modi Entertainment Network Ltd
    3rd floor Nirlon House, Dr A.B Road
    Worli Dadar (W).
    Mumbai, Maharashatra 400039
    IN

    Registrar: NameSecure.com
    Domain: BCCIRATINGS.COM
    Created on 08-29-2006
    Expires on 08-29-2009

    Administrative Contact:
    Johnson Cherian
    Phone: 66637555
    E-mail: jcherian-mwc@modi.com

    Technical Contact:
    Namesecure Inc.
    Phone: 570-708-8418
    E-mail: support@namesecure.com

    Name Servers:
    NS5.INDIALINKS.COM 70.87.144.130
    NS6.INDIALINKS.COM 70.85.222.226
    The domain is 'owned' by Modi Entertainment Network. No prizes for guessing the identity of the chairman of Modi Enterprises, the parent company of Modi Entertainment Network.

    The administrators at the BCCI have probably not realized the importance of ownership of such a domain name. While I don't necessarily doubt Lalit Modi's intentions, the BCCI could end up on thin ice a few years later.

    1 sledge(s):

    That Modi network site is hilarious. I especially like the search box describing searches as Sensitive or Insensitive. (Yes, I know it refers to case - but that doesn't stop it being funny.)

    Even better, trying to use it tells me Not Found. That might have been because I searched for [colonial] [AND] [Insensitive], though. I don't think Malcolm Speed appears on the Modi network site.
