I am obviously a "partisian" dot web supporter,
however something happened last night that made me think: How many TLDs do
Let's use my MountRushmore.info example...
If we have dot web, dot
shop, dot biz, dot info, dot com, dot net, dot org....
Which MountRushmore will
you as a consumer visit:
I see happening with those I am in competition to get these kind of relevant domains
(for my business) is that one or two are probably enough......I will of course get
a few more, with hypens, etc, for "search engines" but when is enough, enough...
realize the internet is not all about commerce. One of the best things that
is often overlooked is the information that you can get without having to go to the
library to get it....But how many times can you "copy" the english language before
it comes not relavent...Whereby we would almost have to create a new, "unique" form
of word identification to stand apart from other domain names...My example of MountRushmore
(copied 6 times) is where we are at right now...
Do we want a 100 Mount Rushmore's????
Can a business, like MyCompany.com last if 99 other MyCompany's exist??
of the speculation aspect of this dilemma, but from a pure open realistic standpoint...and
I think you will see that we probably have enough TLDs.....It's kind of like the
"Mirror Maze"...With so many domain names that look the same, which is the "real"
What I fear is the "lack of use" of newer TLDs....That factor will play
into the success of a domain (for sure)....with more of the same, the chance of finding
an "operable" website will go down...Call this "Krajewski's Law of TLD integration",
that for every new TLD that comes out, the rate of "Error 404" messages will rise
by a factor of 2x...
