Any value? Do you believe that ICANN will accept their extensions.

Buying a domain name from new.net is like buying a glacier floating around at the equator -- they could vanish from the face of the earth at any time.

ICANN will never accredit "their" extensions. They may claim them for themselves -- but it's very unlikely that they're going to welcome a company that is trying to go behind their backs.

Last I heard Icann called the business a "cute trick", so unless something has changed I doubt their extensions will ever be globally accessible.

New.net is a bit of hype machine (in my opinion) and I'd take whatever you read on their homepage with a grain of salt.

There are too many extensions already... Who needs anymore?
ICANN should say no and stick by the extensions they already have.

Look at the fiasco with the recent additions such as .tv and .biz. Do we really want to go through something similar again.

.COM is king and is here to stay!

Yes, If You take it that way, if there were only .com domains, the profits would be much bigger? And that would be cool.

in my opinion.. it is best to steer clear of the new.net

there are many other names w/ other extensions..

and still many .com's available.. and the expired names too.


i've never purchased a new.net and i don't forsee that i will.


goodluck!

ICANN, if it adopts an extension that new.net uses, will simply replace it with an actual domain in the root zone files. ICANN is never going to accept an alternate root provider. If your ISP is supporting new.net zone file lookups, it had better be going to the ICANN supported root servers first...

Alternate roots would result in Internet Anarchy - and none of us want that.
