||As A For-Profit Domain Name Speculator, I Would Just Like To Say ...
Thank you ICANN. The price of top .COM domain names
remains high. Just knowing about the release procedures for .INFO and .BIZ
(i.e. sunrise periods, trademark holder preference) gives me a great advantage over
most companies and individuals who will later pay me lots of money for the domains
I buy now through Neulevel and Afilias. Me and the other speculators out here
will just take advantage of the fact that most of the world's business owners are
far too busy to know about .INFO and .BIZ, (won't even mention .MUSEUM or the highly-prized
.AERO). Even the sunrise periods aren't long enough. Actually, most trademark
holders will sleep through the sunrise periods. The fact that they missed the
sunrise periods will only be used against them when they try reverse highjacking
So a heartfelt thanks, ICANN, for creating so few new TLDs, and no real
competition to .COM. I will scoop up great .INFO domains before many other
companies and individuals, thanks to the dozen or more ICANN-accredited registrars
that are giving better chances to those who pay a couple of bucks, or in the case
of Register.com, their good customers.
Remember, it's estimated, conservatively,
that at least 30% of domain name sales are to speculators. We'll all
gobble up whatever valuable domains we can, much like cheap real estate. Umm
good. Thanks again for only creating two usable TLDs. My speculation
dollar goes much farther that way.
Um um good!
