Subject: 30 Million TLD are possible


30 Million Top Level Domains are possible - even with todays technology.

Just think about it.

There are much more than this number of domain names already.

Currently, from receiving the domain name, the time to lookup specific IP address is say, for auguments sake, 0.1 of a second.

Therefore, if 30 million TLD, the time to find a specific TLD will take this time.

Hence, the time to find specific address will only add 0.1 seconds.

Yes - I know there are reasons why they do not introduce.

I know the minor technical issues, but the main reason is the greed of those that want control of common words

The fact is this - it is possible to have 30 Million Top Level Domains.

So why not introduce .NPO?

Is this just a ploy to distract from VeriSign deal?

To all that attend Melbourne meeting with the best intentions for the Internet - Good Luck getting your voice heard.

With only a couple of hours for public comment it is most likely you will be ignored.
