... you have to admit, all joking aside, that .WEB stands a better chance than
almost any other TLD or ccTLD ever rolled out. Consider the following:|
the vehicle we're currently using to communicate via this bboard is most commonly
referred to as the WEB. The term "WEB" is used perhaps hundreds of millions of times
a day. Everyone knows, understands, writes, read, hears and uses the word every single
day ... perhaps more so than "dot com"
Alternatively it makes sense from a technical
point of view. There are approximately 65,000 commonly-referred-to ports on the Internet,
the World Wide WEB is simply one of those ports... port 80 to be specific (the visible
part). It might take some time, but IMHO it just makes more sense than dot-com.
