Subject: Why .INFO beats .org and .net

Message:
 

 
Yes I managed to get about 100 good names, many generic. But even though all domains just act as an address, the domain ending has an important psychological effect. It is therefore almost something of an embarrassment for a business to be trading under a .org etc.

It is this psychological element that can be tapped into by making an all rounded portal for .info names which is important. The bottom line is .infos look promising because YOU CAN TURN THEM INTO BUSINESSES legitimately, whereas .org you can't and .net is considered by many to be a second best domain.

How does it compare with .com? Too early to say- depends how many good .info sites there are and how many holding pages, but I would say .info will at least become no.2
