Checking to see if Image Online reserved prime names was EXACTLY the first step I took several years ago to test the integrity of Image Online before registering my own domains. Seeing that Image Online did not reserve ANY  prime domain names was the first of many issues which have proven to me that Image Online's business philosophy encompasses the seemingly lost concept of integrity on the internet.

In the many years since, I have used the .WEB whois lookup feature countless times, and NEVER ONCE have I found any other .WEB domains other then the ones you mentioned (nic.web , the.web , and iodesign.web) being reserved by Image Online. Heck, they don't even own tld.web. If they do own others, they are certainly not choice domain names. I should know, I've looked ALL of them up over the years.

Contrast these business practices to the .TV registry at http://www.tv
