I just reviewed what was posted on ICANN Blog and am
a bit stunned: "|
Neustar Charges States, Cities for .US Names
Prior to the
.us landrush, Neustar reserved a load of domain names corresponding to state and
city names and official state mottos. It's now making them available for registration
by the relevant states and cities... for a price. Three-year registration: USD$168.00.
Five-year registration: USD$180.00. Lifetime registration: USD$395.00."
So if Mayor
Bloomberg doesn't claim www.cityofnewyork.us for a hefty price, it gets thrown back
into the pool. What is the point of having a reserved list? I would think
the state, local, and municple reserved names were reserved for a reason. Can
someone please explain what one the service seems like marketing BS.
