While I do understand how you feel about ICANN taking
away your .BIZ, you should accept it as fated as there is nothing really, which can
be done as there is no central authority to issue or regulate TLD delegation. Multiple
root operators may have different policies. For eg., my TXSroot won't recognize ICANN's
.TV and we duplicated it for TeleVision stations and ours is priced much more cheaper
(only $6). We however will allow Tuvalu to keep .tuvalu, if they want.
I do hope you can answer this question of mine - What could yourself and/or ARNI
do to prevent New.net for taking away .family, .xxx, and .kids from you? Please do
not say lawsuit since courts could simply dismiss the case as abuse of court system
and order you to pay New.net's legal fees.
Your Top Level Domain
Association (TLDA.org) is simply an unofficial group. And so is the USG root. I could
virtually duplicate any ccTLD. Let's say, I did not like ICANN giving dot.TV exclusive
monopoly over the TeleVision generic Top level Domain (gTLD), so I setup my own root
and duplicated .TV. My root has over 5,000 registrations in .TV, with nearly 60%
are working registrations (those that resolve in the DNS).
other hand, if I do duplicate the MAJOR top level domains, such as .com, .net, .org,
.edu, .gov, .mil, .int, .uk, .ca, .us, .au, .ru, .sg, .cn, .my, and .id my root would
be doomed a failure.
To see the duplicated dot.TV in TXSroot (that's
my own public root), use these name server IP numbers - 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
My pricing for a .TV domain is only $6, which is way cheaper than ICANN's dot.TV.
