||Slow uptake with Landrush 2 .biz names?
I get the impression that apart from the most obvious and popular names, there isn't
actually as much demand for these names as I would have expected.|
I've been surprised
how many good names haven't even been applied for on the DomainPeople list.
other thing I expect, is that a lot of the most popular names will in effect go to
registrars or registrars "masked" under the identity of another person or friend.
no regulation in this industry, and no real way of checking up if "Person X" is actually
the "cover" for registrars.
Some people say that .biz will grow in popularity.
I don't see it myself. I can see a small number of really effective generics or trade
names working with .biz ending, because they'd work with virtually ANY ending.
I don't see .biz having the same attraction as .com (which it has to be compared
with) whereas .info at least serves a different purpose if developed intelligently.
DomainPeople list of names is really helpful - I've been wondering for months WHY
Neulevel didn't list all the IP claims etc
Thanks to the person who mentioned this
list on this forum!
