Thankyou for the public access section to discuss new TLD issues.
I would like to suggest that New.net should be given better opportunity
to achieve TLD status for their 22 domain extensions that have been
widely publicised and sold for some time.
.agent, .arts, .auction, .chat, .church, .club, .family, .free, .game, .golf,
.inc, .kids, .law, .llc, .llp, .love, .ltd, .med, .mp3, .school, .scifi, .shop,
.soc, .sport, .tech, .travel, .video, .xxx
These extensions were created because they break down the .COM monopoly. .mail
are competition more to .NET than to .COM.
A major weakness of searching on the internet is the characterisation of .COM
to cover all
web technologies, it doesn't represent the commercial sector anymore. That is
is such a popular discussion issue for netizens. Most of the new.net
types of clubs or categories which would bring major recognition to thousands
of these names and much greater variety in website naming.
Supposedly 180,000,000 users, a major fraction of internet users have new.net
set up. To deny new.net TLD status permanently means competition to TLD
continue. 180,000,000 people can already access sex.xxx, what will happen when
.xxx is given TLD status to another company? 2 people will own sex.xxx. What
installs the new.net addon as a browser default?
To ask $45,000 per TLD application has put new.net in an impossible position
1 million dollars just for application. New net is recognised as a new
extension provider and
should be given consideration by ICANN to propose their names as TLD on a
system, and not forced to pay $1,000,000 for this consideration.
