"TLD APPLICANTS - BEING CONSIDERED BY ICANN."|
--> Things are clearer now!
what is when a registry fails? Do it have to pay the money back? ICANN could do the
same with afilias. But as I read the registration agreements all fees are non-refundable.
So if ICANN would decide that a registry in "your proof of concept phase" can't handle
it. All money of the customers were lost. It would be same if ICANN would terminate
Sorry, but I can't see much benefit.
"So new net is better
because it can be accessed by millions of people?
I can certainly understand that
logic - and agree to a certain extent - but it fails to take many things into account."
The chance of getting into USG root is higher and the chance of beeing duplicated
by ICANN is lower (mass confusion: 400 mil get that page 70 mil get another page.
That would "de-stabilize" the net in ICANNs speech)
"I am thinking primarily of
Christopher Ambler with .web - "they are carried in roots that are accessible by
not many people".
But you qualified that with, "and there is nearly zero content."
many customers would he have to get before deserving a chance at USG root?"
.WEB is a really nice extension. But nowadays new TLDs should characterize the content
like .info for informationm, .biz for business, .pro for professionals, .museum and
so on. .WEB stands for the WEB, so there is no characterisation of content. .WEB
wouldn't lead to any improvement of web navigation.
If there were much content
in the .WEB space some people might say: "I want see that, too"
These people would
use plug-ins like the new from PacificRoot/Nameslinger or directly use alt roots.
And before ICANN looses power they will put .WEB into the USG root.
Why do you
think New.net encourages its customers with prizes to build sites? Without content
there is no need to download the new.net plug-in or to join a new.net enabled ISP
and no need to visit new.net sites. Until now a killer application is missed. Maybe
its the new movie service.
