With OpenNIC one of the domain registrars used a method where you
had to validate one time after registering (else it would just expire)
and then just one time every 12 months.
They also had (have? this was back when I contributed to the project)
another method where you whitelist yourself to some DNS servers, however
that's unrelated to domains..
