Regarding Image Online Design's ongoing struggle
to recieve accreditation from ICANN and its predecessor IANNA.
online design has been in the registration and registry business for five years now,
far before domains names became a lucrative industry and eons before a majority of
ICANN's rival applicants entered the market. They have proven that they possess the
ability to successfully operate and manage a registry.
In reviewing IOD's application
ICANN launched personal attacks against IOD's founders and employees taunting their
"inabiltity to grow in the design business and looking down on their prior "experience
in the automotive sales."
In contrast Affilias application made
no mention of Network Solutions inablity to grow in the web hosting bussiness, Tucows
inabality to grow in the technology and downloads business and register.com's inability
to expand past its domain names business.
Nearly six months after their
approval, none of the awardees have been able to launch their new domain names; while
Image Online Design is ready within minutes of recieving accreditation.
20,000 individuals, myself excluded, from over 100 countries have succesfully registered
a .web domain with Image Online Design.
The Paucity of Domain Names is manifesting
market value and providing the primary impetus for "cybersquatting" if Icann were
to approve Image Online's .web(tm) they might not only relieve crowding but dissolve
