>                 Why .WEB ?
>
>   1. All inclusive (unlike .Mall, .Biz, .news, et)
>   2. Non controversial (Unlike .Sex,.XXX,.Aids, et)
>   3. Most recognized and well known prefix
>      (unlike .nom, .wap, .ypi, .svc, et)
>   4. Poses as a serious contender to the already
>      depleted .com, .net, .org suffixes
>   5. .WEB registry has been in continuous operation
>      since July 31, 1996
>   6. .WEB already holds a strong following and
>      tremendous support all over the world, from
>      Internet and non-Internet users
>   7. Image Online Design's .WEB application meets
>      all of ICANN's criteria
>   8. Over 20,000 registrants have approved of .WEB
>      as their TLD selection
>    
>            Why Image Online Design?
>
>   1. Currently the longest standing prospective
>      registry
>   2. Active in its domain debate since its
>      inception 4 years ago
>   3. Continuous work to ensure that policies and
>      procedures are created fairly
>   4. Offers ongoing, effective, DNS Services
>   5. Has made significant upgrades to its technical
>      infrastructure
>   6. Already uses a progressive and efficient
>      Domain name system & Root server system
>   7. Has a proven track record of managing a
>      technically adaptable highly stable domain
>      name registry

>      Dispute Resolution Policy
>   9. Adheres to the Rules of using this policy

>       website for private transactions and
>       individual collections
>   11. Incredible support of  .WEB customers, and
>       users of the Internet all over the world 
>   12. Supports and adheres to ICANN's overriding
>       goal of opening up the domain name system
>       and encouraging competition for domain
>       name usage (opposed to Network Solutions, Inc.
>       who controls 98% of all domain name
>       registrations in the US, two-thirds of all
>       domain registrations in the world, and seeks
>       to monopolize the domain name market).
>   13. Does not undermine ICANN's goal to select a
>       diversity of proposals to become TLD's
>       (unlike NSI's Afilias that poses a
>       transparent attempt to circumvent this
>       process).
>   14. Has become one of the most sophisticated
>       pioneer registries in the country
>   15. Image Online Design brings stability to the
>       internet, meets the diversity of proposal
>       test, and is committed to protecting
>       intellectual property rights.
>    16. Does not propose a conflict of interest, nor
>        is it monopolistic in nature.
>    17. Was previously given permission to become
>        the .WEB Registry by IANA years ago.
>
>      Over 20,000 Supporters of Image Online Design 
>      And .WEB exist all over the Country, all over
>      the World.
>
> Remember Image Online Design and .WEB.
> Again, thank you for your consideration.
