from John Horton


The good guys:
Among the many registrars who, to their credit, suspend and lock domain names shown to be engaged in such illegal activity are
    Name.com,
    eNom,
    GoDaddy,
    DomainContext,
    Directi (PDR),
    URL Solutions,
    Internet.bs,
    Center for Ukrainian Internet Names,
    GandiSAS
    and several others.


The bad guys
Last month, LegitScript released updated data identifying the top registrars that serve as platforms for rogue Internet pharmacies: in order,
    ABSystems,
    Moniker,
    the Momentous Group (primarily Rebel.com),
    Joker,
    Cloud Group Limited
are the top five, followed by
    0101 Internet (which has since fixed the problem),
    TodayNIC,
    Tucows,
    BizCN
    WebNIC.cc.


Improving:
The response to LegitScript's reporting and notification has had a positive effect. Three of the registrars in our April 2012 Top 10 list —
    Internet.bs,
    the Center for Ukrainian Internet Names
    Name.com
— have done an outstanding job in disabling illegal content and are far from our current Top 10.
