.BIZ Chat conversation...
(Why doesn't the domain name industry know how to communicate
and inform... and why don't they think of doing the obviously helpful things? How
do you know whether to apply for a name, if the WHOIS doesn't list all the names
that "might" be taken? And why not give the public a list of conflicted names?)
wait for a site operator to respond.
All operators are currently assisting others.
Thanks for your patience. An operator will be with you shortly.
You are now chatting
ROBERT: Welcome to .BIZ. How may I help you?
Have you started "live" registrations yet? And most of the names I want are "not
taken" on your WHOIS - but I'm surprised - might they be taken already?
ROBERT: they could be taken. Conflicted names are not in the whois database
RICHARD HENDERSON: Thanks Robert - If I want to register whisky.biz, can I do
that? It says in the WHOIS that it is not taken, which really surprises me? Can I
register it or has someone else reserved it? How can I know whether I can buy it
RICHARD HENDERSON: It would be helpful if there is a list of conflicted
names somewhere. Is there such a list anywhere, for the public to refer to?
No there is no list of conflicted domain names
RICHARD HENDERSON: OK - thanks -
ROBERT: ok bye
