        NIC.INFO is on appraisal at!

I think Afilias is not amoused. ;-)
The Original top level domain (TLD) .info was established long before the one from Afilias.
Therefore Afilias is introducing duplicate domain names. Because of this damage on the
DNS Afilias' .info is not supported by the whole internet. Following root server corporations
don't support Afilias' .info and support an other version of the .info TLD:*
The PacificRoot
The Universal Registry
This means that only 90 to 95% of the internet users can access the .info domain from Afilias.
In the reverse conclusion this means that the Original .info domains get 5 to 10%
of the traffic of the Afilias' .info domains!**
Imagine you were the registrant of the Original domain You could get up to 10% of
the traffic of the domain from Afilias!

More information at:
--> only when you use DNS
--> when you run antique DNS (ICANN)
