<<<<< As a consultant that assists start-up dotcom companies, I would like to inform
you that every client of our firm is concerned and totally against the introduction
of new TLD's. |
They believe that it is not fair to only give preference to famous
marks. They say that if ICANN does introduce a new TLD, ICANN should give a 90 day
period for all current owners of dot com names to register their current .com names
with the new TLD's. After the 90-day period, everyone would be able to register any
names that are available. >>>>>>
To counter the above, I REPEAT what I said
in a previous post:
"Clearly you don't understand the REASON new TLDs are being
introduced: to enable OTHER people to attain domains not available in .com, .net
and .org so as to offer diversity and competition where business relates, and similar
opportunities where non-commercial interests are concerned.
To give .biz, .store,
.info domains to the owners of the corresponding domains in .com, .net, or .org destroys
the very reasoning behind introducing new TLDs into the Internet root. You then might
as well not open new TLDs if there is redundancy.
And which of the existing domain
registrants gets it? Does the owner of Business.com get to register Business.biz?
Or do you allow the owner of Business.net to have it? Or the owner of Business.org.
offense, but isn't this all obvious reasoning?
