Support Reasonable Transition

In an effort to draw this spirited discussion towards a workable solution, I offer the following:



1) Many businesses have in good faith purchased .travel names from New.net and have built marketing and promotional programs around those .travel names, and

2) New.net made the choice not to apply for accreditation as the .travel registrar through ICANN, and

3) Tralliance did choose to go through the extensive and expensive registration process, and

4)  ICANN is recognized internationally as the organization with responsibility for domain name system management, and root server system management functions (else chaos reign).


Therefore, I suggest:

1)  Tralliance be accredited as the registrar for the .travel sTLD, and

2)  New.net and Tralliance agree to migrate the established .travel names from New.net to Tralliance, with all names grandfathered to current owners.

3)  Tralliance establishes both a vetting process and a dispute resolution process (similar to that used by Register.com, perhaps).  This would allow those who may have legitimate claims to certain .travel names to challenge domain-name squatters or inappropriate users.  It would also provide a level of credibility to the .travel domain world which does not currently exist.


Thank you,
