||I agree new.net, .tv,.to are a waste of space. Give .web a chance.. .biz names could have some value
New.net are selling too many domains. I believe having to remember the domain name
and ending would confuse many people. Also one monopoly over one name can be problematic
in terms of them treating customers like dirt and even blatently committing fraud,
as we have seen with Afiliarse.|
.web to me does not seem to offer anything new
really, but I'd prefer a .web to a .biz. Also at least the registry mingles with
their customers in this forum, instead of ignoring them behind a smokescreen of corruption
like Afilias. Give them a chance, I say.
I wouldn't say .biz names are completely
useless. The generics may have an aftersales value to someone with a long .com,
or even a business who has settled for a .org name (which looks embarrassing to me).The
value of a domain name is not soley for type ins. A large company may be embarrassed
by its crap domain which it had to settle for because everything else was taken.
They may prefer a much sleeker name and businesses can get away with having a .biz.
They will always be lower than .coms and .infos though.
