'One thing I notice is the lack of activity from posters, from industry watchers,
and from ICANN, since the .INFO/.BIZ rollouts. Looks like few care about the
other remaining new TLDs.' |
--> other new TLDs are not good for speculation
the losing applicants, back in Nov 2000, are just that ... losing applicants.
It's a done deal, folks. It'll take years before ICANN ushers in a new gTLD.
Is the ARNI version of .BIZ still around? Have they been destroyed by ICANN's
collision? Looks like few even care.'
--> The collission
is no theme today because 99% of the .info and .biz aren't until now. Watch the counter
on drugs.info and loans.info and see how less visits these high profile names get.
(The counter counts visitors of both sites and many other high profile names together.)
nic.info from name.space is still around. In the USG root the URL is: http://nic.info.xs2.net
whois record: http://name-space.com/cgi-bin/whois.pl?whois=NIC.INFO
.WEB? Looks like few care. Those few will probably respond to this post,
yet they remain but only a few ...'
--> I'm no .WEB speculator and will never
be one. It's a beautiful TLD but without a chance to become globally recognized with
or without ICANN.
Moreover .WEB as a TLD is not up to date. Remember all new TLDs
have a special meaning and stand for a special segment (info for information, biz
for business,...). All new TLDs should help to categorize content. But .WEB stands
for the WEB/Internet. You can't segment/categorize content with that.
Who cares anymore ... well, maybe a few of their fan club will respond to this post,
yet they also remain only a few.'
--> I care about New.net. As you stated above
ICANN won't introduce new TLDs anytime soon. Therefore New.net has any time to expand
its visibility. Until now New.net domains could be accessed in the short form by
75 mil users. In March 01 it were only 16 mil users. New.net predicts that they will
have 200 mil users with access to the short version of their domains by mid 2002
and New.net has ever over-achieved their goals so far. You see New.net is on the
way to global visibility without ICANN. Maybe not 100% visibility, but 85 to 95%
in the long run (2-3 years).
New.net is nothing for short-term speculators, you
have to have patience.
Invest and don't speculate.
