>>Why should the
wider world be forced to respect the TLD of an alt-root which just made it up itself?<<
who annointed ICANN king of the world? It's just another private corporation.
Who do you think made up .com/.net/.org? A human. The creation date for .BIZ
as a TLD is December, 1995. It's not exactly new. Respect is earned.
Has ICANN earned it? Our registrants are quite loyal. We are respected
because of honesty and service.
>>And why should ICANN respect one alternate
root when it might be fighting over a TLD with others?<<
And why should ICANN
be respected for exacerbating it as the market leader with a contract that says it
shall not harm existing entities? ICANN is creating the first major collision.
The roots have been working to resolve collisions. ICANN has just worsened
the problem on a huge scale.
>>(me) "Even if ICANN adopted the alt-root's
.biz, it would
have to find someone with global-scale connectivity (e.g. serious
money/resources) to implement it."<<
>>"Correct, and that is exactly
why they could easily appoint owners of alternate root services too and have them
run the respective
registry for a new gtld."<<
missed it. GLOBAL-SCALE CONNECTIVITY. That is, it's going to have to deal with applications
for domain names from the WORLD. Do you really think Pissant Root from Bumfuck, Nowhere
can deal with the flood of applications that a popular TLD would get? Or maybe they'd
end up something like "If you want your application actually processed, send us a
$100,000 processing fee." I've seen lots of accusations about ICANN/Verisign being
corrupt. What do you think a tiny alt-root, which suddenly finds itself intoxicated
with power, would do? Policing? ALL of them? Yeah, try it.<<
Excuse me to both of you. First of all, have you determined that
there is not what you call global connectivity for the .BIZ registry? Do you
have any idea how many hundreds of thousands of dollars have been invested in the
registration system? Do you have any idea how many years the PacificRoot which
is the contracted registration service has been in business as an IT company?
Try 17 years. Their .NOMAD tld goes back to 1985. Have you checked the
capability or scalability of the registration system? Have you load tested
it? Of course not, or you would not have made the statement. Have you checked
to see if the IP block being used is portable so that important addresses will never
be changed? Wonder what would happen to some registries if their primary upstream
suddenly went out of business.
Making the assumption that something that is new
to YOU is not robust or capable of global registration is pretty haughty. I
would suggest you check things out prior to making wild, insulting, slanderous and
It does not take a major multinational corporation to operate
a stable, robust registry. It takes good, solid connectivity, stable IP addressing,
good programming, redundant equipment, service, knowlege and experience. We
contracted with The PacificRoot for those reasons.
