Some have suggested that .web or .name would
be the appropriateTLD for personal domains. I would not want to use .web
for myown personal domain. The web is only one part of the Internet.Though
I'm not yet actively using smov.org, I intend to useit for web, e-mail, ftp,
ssh, and other services. As for.name, smov.org is the name of a personal
organization, nota personal name (thompson.org and kst.org were already taken).
have suggested that .org should be restricted toorganizations that are not intended
to be profitable, notnecessarily legally recognized "non-profit" or "not-for-profit"organizations.
There is no such restriction implied in RFC1591. If I some day decide to
do business as a consultanton a small scale, I should be able to use smov.org
for thispurpose. If I set up a larger scale consulting business,I should
probably set up a .com domain, but small-scale usefor profit should not disqualify
me from using .org.
