||Why no .SAT domain names for satellite services ?
It is very surprising that hosts that represent satellite services do not have a
coordinated .SAT domain name, independently of countries or terrestrial commercial/governmental
Such a hierarchy would be independent of organisations because many
groups share most interests on the same satellite service.
This would include for
na.inmar.sat: INMARSAT service for North Atlantic Ocean
that for South Atlantic Ocean
io.inmar.sat: that for Indian Ocean
that for North Pacific Ocean
sp.inmar.sat: that for South Pacific Ocean
hotbird.sat: Hot Bird satellites
But would exclude commercial
products sold on earth, such as Canal-Satellite, which is a TV service, using the
space services and bandwidth sold by a satellite company. I think that such a domain
could be coordinated by the ITU committee in charge of world frequencies, with which
each satellite service has contracted an agreement.
