NameBlock prevents DNS Abuse, and gives your registry access to an untapped source of revenue.
NameBlock helps registries reduce DNS Abuse, gain an additional revenue stream, and helps brands and individuals protect their names online.
NameBlock connects to your backend service provider and then maintains domain block lists as they are created, renewed, or deleted. Blocked domains don't resolve or have a WHOIS entry so there aren't any related fees or other management involved.
NameBlock connects to your backend service provider via API. If an API connection is not available NameBlock will publish a file with all of the currently active blocks so that the backend provider can import them into the system.
Once the connection is established, each registry can choose which pre-defined levels of blocks they would like registrars to offer their customers.
Once a Registry is connected to NameBlock it is time to sit back and relax. Blocking happens automatically as end-users place orders at their preferred Registrar or directly at NameBlock.com. Registries get paid a revenue share of each block that is applied to their zone.
Registries can choose which levels of blocks they want end users to choose from. Some registries may not want to allow fill wildcard blocks, while others may be open to anything! NameBlock is an easily customizable solution that prevents DNS Abuse and has something for everyone!

No! Blocked domains do not actually exist in the zone file, so there aren't any ICANN Fees. If an end-user wishes to unblock and use one of the domains that was previously blocked, then all standard ICANN rules and fees apply to only that domain.
