||Why dot-web will be less desirable than dot-net ...
Many dot-net domains don't sound good in dot-web. For example:|
-- who wants a sticky hotel, yuck!
2. motel.web -- ditto
Of course, some dot-web domains may make sense. For example:
-- MediaWeb [Many people already think that the media is a deceptive web already,
so no harm here.]
2. car.web CarWeb [Many people think lowly of car salesmen
already, so no harm here.]
3. spider.web -- SpiderWeb [A great domain for info
about spiders or even pest control.]
4. data.web --- DataWeb
The foregoing might also make sense as directories [kind of like
Also, plurals in dot-web just don't make much sense. For example:
hotels.web -- HotelsWeb ? No way!
2. motels.web -- MotelsWeb ? No way!
--- BanksWeb ? No way!
4. cars.web ---- CarsWeb ? No way!
-- ComputersWeb ? No way!
Dot-net is better: net means network.
also better than dot-web.
Dot-com is even better: com means commercial or company
Dot-biz sounds so much like dot-sleeze [or dot-hardsell] as to be
somewhat a turnoff. Some dot-biz websites might make sense, but most will probably
be too commercial or in-your-face.
