"" "If ICANN would be really so dump and would introduce
another .shop version it wouldn't be that bad for New.net. Think of the additional
exposore for the .shop TLD. New.net .shop domain owners would get ca. 15-20% of the
traffic of the ICANN .shop Domain... and if you have good ones... As a result this
would drive more traffic to New.nets .shop domain than present."|
Except now isn't
new.net supposedly getting 100 percent of the .shop traffic?""
--> 100% traffic
of low traffic
with a dublicate .shop TLD by ICANN 15-20% of higher traffic
date New.net is the registry and the only registrar of its domains. Now imagine if
ICANN would introduce its own .shopm and VeriSign with its reseller forces would
offer this new .shop TLD. --> more marketing, more exposure, more registrations,
more sites with content --> increased traffic under the .shop TLD. this 15-20%
would be more than the actual 100%
""Thanks for the reply. You would
appear to suggest that a strongly-rooted alternate TLD would be off-limits to ICANN.
Dot-biz showed that wasn't so, although I can't attest to its original 'strength'.""
ARNIs Dot-biz runs in alternate roots. New.net runs within the "ICANN Root" under
the .net TLD and runs above the ICANN Root. Again: That what you type in your browser
bar would be altered by the New.net Plug-In before a DNS query is started. Completely
different to ARNI.
But one is evident: If Microsoft only would they could introduce
every TLD they want (with instant 90% visibility through IE). Until now their only
"TLDs" are Realnames Keywords (forget keywords).
""If what you are saying is
true, then ARNI should be experiencing a 15-20 percent increase in traffic, what
with the increased ICANN .biz visibility and all.""
--> I wrote an e-mail to
the registrant of the domain neulevl.biz from ARNI to ask him this question but he
