Two new patents
Patent numbered 10,659,424, determining the status of domain name registration has the idea of determining if a domain name is available for registration by using the least amount of computing/connection resources as possible.
Patent numbered 10,659,423, System and method for modifying a domain name system template, describes a way to set up DNS templates that can be applied to domain names. Some of these could be pre-set by the registrar, such as a way to connect a domain to a photo-sharing website or other third-party service.
