Some would argue that it is not that hard to remember the difference between..
may be true for those persons with a good memory and few second levels to remember
(the xyz part), but as the list grows to 10 or 20 or 50 xyz's, no one's memory will
Further more, having to remeber the difference between multiple xyz's
frustrates the ability to remember the difference between nnn.com and xyz.biz for
if necessary, could someone remember the difference between:
take into account that the nnn.com won the lottery for nnn.info but did not buy enough
tickets and lost nnn.biz to somene else and xyz.net is xyz.info but not xyz.com
How many second level domains can the average person remember?
a: How many TLDs
are there to keep track of?
q: How many lawsuits and fights will there be over
a: How many TLDs will be opened?
com, net, and org had logical
global distinctions associated with the registrants. The Dot biz and dot info strive
to blur distinction between domains and their registrants.
The price of new TLDs
will be confusion, disputes and an overall degregation of the domain name sytem (
also a reliance on search engines and trademark litigation ). DNS as a utility to
remember others will suffer and so will DNS performance.
P.S. someone had responded
New TLD's What purpose do they serve?
by saying that its not that hard
to remember the difference between the tlds that we have now - and the post seems
to have disapeared.
