Subject: Not So Fast....COM Still Dominates...take a look where MTAINFO.COM goes...

Message:
 

 
While .INFO domains have their uses, it remains to be seen if .INFO ever becomes anywhere near as popular as .COM.

In regards to New York's MTA...they don't even have their website properly configured...try MTA.COM without the "www." part and one gets page not found - so much for a good example of a .INFO site.

Also, take a look at who owns MTAINFO.COM...it ain't the New York's MTA. Illustrates well, that even if the .INFO domain one wants is available, they will almost be forced to also register the domainINFO.COM version too in order to protect themselves from domain name speculators and traffic brokers.
