Expanding Top Level Domain Names – Yea or Nay?

www8ball.jpgIt was decidedly so, as of a unanimous vote held this week, that the rules and regulations for generic top level domain names (gTLDs) be loosened and relaxed, making it possible to register any organized collection of letters as a TLD. For example, with this newly allowed flexibility, eBay could be given the opportunity to manage the domain, ‘.ebay’. Right now, there are a limited number of top level domain names available, the most reconizable being ‘.com’, ‘.net’, ‘.edu’ etc.

There are however, a few stipulations that ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) has lain down, setting some solid groundwork for this easing of the TLD reigns. One being, that applicants for new domain names must demonstrate superior skill capacity in the areas of organization, financial prowess and operational and technical understanding with respect to running a website.

It will be interesting to see what this new flexibility in TLDs will do for the fervently debated ‘.XXX’ domain, being as the essence of this vote is in accepting any string of letters as a TLD. ICANN has rejected the implementation of a ‘.XXX’ domain for adult oriented sites three times so far, religious groups in agreement, citing that the acceptance of this domain would open the flood gates and lead to the legitimization of pornography, or as The Minister for Communications, Information Technology and the Arts, Senator Helen Coonan, puts it, the ‘.XXX’ TLD would provide “…a haven for illegal and offensive content.”. Though advocates of the controversial TLD insist that it will make it much easier to regulate the content of these sites. It’s hard to say how ICANN will react to the application of a ‘.XXX’ when the inevitable next time rolls around.

ICANN’s decision will hopefully allow, not only for further personalization options for the site, but also increased creativity, originality and innovation coupled with a focus consumer choice and competition with the domain name space. They expect hundreds and hundreds of new domains to be registered quickly after they make their grand appearance at the end of 2009.

And why not at the bargain bin price of $500,000 bones:

Prices to register the new domain names, expected to be anywhere from $150,000 to $500,000, would most likely prohibit individuals from applying for new domain names. ICANN said the high fees would allow it to recoup the approximately $20 million it expects to spend on implementation of the new policy.

I guess we will find out soon how this decision will effect the world wide web. Some people believe that this will begin to change the very framework of domain name services; welcome more creativity and brand new ideas. Others however, aren’t sure if a move like this is necessary, and pose the question as to whether or not customers will even want these flexible TLDs to be a part of their website. Only time and trial will tell – so it’s a good thing for domain name tasting:

The ICANN board also approved actions to stop the practice of domain name tasting, which allows a registrar to register a domain name and place pay-per-click ads on it for up to five days to determine whether it will make money from those ads. If so, the registrar can then register the domain name for $6 per year. If not, the registrar must return the domain to ICANN.

New servers, new names, new prices

Each year, old technology is replaced by new, bringing us faster, better computers and servers (among other things, of course). SuperbHosting.net has now released some new dedicated servers, and with that, updated our pricing and the way we name our servers. Gone are the old Solo, Prime, Edge, Pro, and Extreme servers that were a part of the Superb dedicated server line-up for so long; to help make things more clear, we’ve gone to a naming scheme that describes the server processor. The Solo servers had been moved to our Clearance Server section for quite some time now, but the other four classes of servers, Prime, Edge, Pro, and Extreme have been replaced by Single Processor Dual Core, Single Processor Quad Core, Dual Processor Dual Core, and Dual Processor Quad Core, respectively. As mentioned, we updated our prices with the new names, and several Dual Xeon dedicated servers have been shifted over to our Clearance Servers – there’s even a timely promotion on Clearance Servers on the Clearance Server page.

New server configurations:

Intel Kentsfield X3220 Quad-Core Xeon 2.4 GHz, 1GB RAM, 250GB SATA HD, 2,000GB monthly traffic (Single Processor Quad Core)

Intel Harpertown E5405 Quad-Core Dual Xeon 2.0GHz, 2GB RAM, 500GB SATA HD, 2,000GB monthly traffic (Dual Processor Quad Core)

Protect Yourself From Domain Tasting

I’d never actually heard of the term domain tasting until recently; a Slashdot article was forwarded to me about domains disappearing after individuals had done some searching for them. There’s a bit of a dispute between those who practice the art of domain tasting and those that are against it, with questions surrounding the legitimacy of domain tasting as a business. For the average user, myself included, if I do a search for a domain I would expect that search to remain (for the most part) confidential; that information shouldn’t be available to be exploited, at least in my opinion.

Ultimately, this is a part of the dark side of the Internet. Technically, I’m sure that no one is doing anything illegal. Instead they are simply exploiting the unsuspecting. By sticking with larger, reputable sites for your searches, you can probably help lower the chances that your domain search information will be exploited, but it’s definitely not a complete solution. While looking into the topic, I found an article that gives some useful advice for those searching and how to help protect their potential domains:

  • Delay searching for available domains until you’re actually prepared to follow through with the registration. Better still, search for and register new domain ideas immediately whenever inspiration strikes you.
  • If one of your domain searches is registered by a domain taster shortly after you checked availability of the domain, and you still want the domain, wait five days and it might become available again. Do not visit the domain during these five days, otherwise the domain taster will believe that the domain gets enough traffic to warrant adding it to his permanent portfolio!
  • If you’re thinking of several domains for a project and are undecided which one to use, register all of your domain ideas immediately. If you use a registrar like Moniker or Dynadot, you’ll have 4-5 days to decide if you actually want to keep a domain once you have registered it. This practically eliminates the danger of impulse registrations that you might regret later.
