||Neulevel's New System...
Looks to be almost exactly the same as .INFOs round robin
system. A couple things I hope Neulevel is encouraging its registrars to do:
Do not charge a pre-registration fee --- with the current court case if they bring
in another system that charges pre-registration fees - is it any better? Or just
another money grab? The only fees that would be acceptable are for unique submissions
for a particular domain to the .BIZ registry, as some .INFO registrars did.
Encourage its registrars to not raid their customers' credit cards with authorizations
and charges for domains that they might not receive. These 50,000 domains are the
most valuable .BIZ domains, and there should be no problem with individuals paying
for the domains they receive. *** This system of authorizations and
charging credit cards before-hand only further helps the 'big-player,' more established
companies since it limits the number of registrars a new or smaller company can submit
its desired domain to. If Neulevel wants to cater to these big-players, almost
all of which have the dot-com equivalents, then why introduce these new TLDs anyways?
The process would have then obviously been a failure in bringing relief to the crowded
---> I hope Neulevel can learn from Afilias' mistakes with
this system. Otherwise no one is learning from these new TLD implementations! (Except
the financially ravaged internet community!)
