Read this facts, then you will know why these people push .WEB!

Shelby R. Hudgens 34 .web domains
Gregory W. Krajewski 34 .web domains
Christopher J. Ambler (CEO or CTO of IOD) 26 .web.domains

"There is "clumping" of registrations with the most frequent registrants. According to the IOD Whois Server, the top 5 registrants have registered 3228 domains, or 14.7% of the current IOD .WEB SLDs; the top 20 registrants have registered 7342 domains, or 33.5% of the current IOD .WEB SLDs. See table of registration counts by registrant."


If this TLD .WEB is that great, why don't you use it???

"A substantial portion of registered IOD .WEB domain names are not currently operational. In my tests, 92 of the 22491 IOD .WEB SLDs had web pages (other than the standard IOD .WEB error message) publicly available at either the http://sld.web or http://www.sld.web address."
