Domain registrars in court

Web.com sues GoDaddy.com alleging patent infringement.

Domain name registrar Web.com filed a patent infringement lawsuit on Monday against rival GoDaddy.com. The lawsuit alleges that GoDaddy's Deluxe Hosting Plan infringes on Web.com's patent called "Synchronized Server Parameter Database," which allows customers to have remote access to a control panel that is part of the Web hosting service.

Atlanta, Georgia-based Web.com filed the lawsuit against Scottsdale, Ariz.-based GoDaddy.com in the U.S. District Court in Atlanta. A GoDaddy representative said company representatives had not been served with the complaint and therefore could not comment.
