Garry Anderson quoted me: "Northern Ireland could have its own cc-TLD."|
wrote: "Seperate Northern Ireland? Ever thought of going into Irish politics?"
British territories Isle of Man (.im), Jersey (.je) and Guernsey (.gg) having separate
ccTLD's means those territories are separate countries? Of course not. Thus,
the Irish Protestants won't mind having a separate ccTLD [or even sharing .brit,
despite that the term "Britain" technically excludes Northern Ireland].
both .uk and .brit point to the same TLD [so that .uk=.brit]. Then let's see
if most Brits would switch to .brit over yucky-sounding .uk over time. I think
they would. Give them the choice.
He also wrote: "Like I say, Equatorial
Guinea's current ccTLD might make sense to them - as ours does us."
.gq [for Guinee Equatoriale] makes less sense than .ge [which is used by the Republic
of Georgia] or .geq for three-letter cc-TLD or .gueq for four-letter cc-TLD.
That's an example of why two letters are insufficient for common sense cc-TLD's.
