Update: August 21, 2006 – Policies changed back for the .cm ccTLD. Read “Cameroon turns wildcarding on (yet again)” for more. We’re not going to keep updating this post with the status.

Earlier today, Cameroon (or the company acting on their behalf) turned off the wildcarding of non-registered domains within the .cm ccTLD. We’re still learning what’s going on, but at least for the moment, .cm domains resolve as they did before last Friday, August 4, 2006.

The OpenDNS preference introduced yesterday for filtering the .cm wildcarding still works, and will not disrupt any valid domain, whether or not wildcarding is active.
