...but I think you are right! Apart from anything else, the strength of the .info
registry's future and reputation will rest in it being a viable one-click action
to instant information on a host of specialist subjects. That's what will MAKE .info's
identity in the bigtime.
If most of the names end up with a few speculators, then
most generic names will be a one-click journey to irrelevance or "parking"
in Afilias's best interests to disperse these vital "information" generics to as
wide a cross-section of the public as possible
.info will otherwise get lost in
the .tv .cc .to mists of anonymity
To really work, .info has to become recognised
throughout the Internet community as the FIRST (and most obvious) place to go for
In this capacity it would be unstoppable and, indeed, would supercede
.com in this "information" sector at least.
If you wanted information on charity,
would you go to charity.info or charity.com (which sounds like some company trying
to profiteer)? Many generic names belong much more comfortably with .info
Advocaat, you are right : if the 10000 to 15000 falsely-claimed "best" generics were
offered to a wide, single-application-per-name public, the future of .info would
be far more secure.
Many of us wanted 10 or a dozen names to really develop - not
just to sell off. And what .info needs are loads of well-developed sites, not just
"parking" pages waiting to be sold in a useless dead-end registry
