Simon, you are looking at situation from wrong viewpoint.|
We are talking TLD here.
you seriously saying, that ICANN will allow new.net the .shop TLD?
--> I never
said that, where did you get that?
But I think whenever there is a next round
of introducing new TLDs, New.net will THE player that couldn't be ignorated by ICANN.
Maybe new.net could select two or three of their domains for the USG root. But ICANN
won't duplicate TLDs from New.net because this would really lead to confusion: 71
mil (maybe more in the future) users will get New.nets domains, the others will get
the ICANN domains.
ICANN could duplicate .info, .biz, .pro, .name because they
are carried in roots that are accessible by not many people and there is nearly zero
AND all the hundred other TLDs?
--> I think name.space is the only
one with that much TLDs
Me> "it has no legitimacy."
You> Who in the world
has a legitimacy to introduce TLDs? Everyone could do that.
Only ICANN (US Government
QUANGO) has legitimacy to put TLDs on *THE* root.
--> No question, you're right.
your initial suggestion was:
"As PoC can be done on Alternate roots - ICANN
should set up .ALT - a closed TLD for applicants.
Using .WEB as example:
are given .web.alt to conduct business.
So current toysite.web will be toysite.web.alt
would go to firstname.lastname@example.org
This is until .web allowed full TLD status - or
shown to be incompetent (chucked off)."
And I said it (access via USG root) is
already available for new.net and name.space.
