Question #4 – I can see these sites as a ploy to see how much interest people and domainers have in the NGTD’s. But like I said I’m not buying it just yet. Most of the domain bloggers including myself are basing our stories off the PRWeb.com releases. Heck I can pay to have a PRWeb.com story and it doesn’t have to be true, just has to be written well to be believable. I am calling on you guys to help me out and our readers out on who the heck are these guys and are they really a major player in the NGTD market?
Question #5 – Has Domainia.com put in any applications for their own NGTD? I am pretty sure the answer is no. Unless they have put in an application under another company, I am just not seeing it. If I missed it than please let me know. Just trying to figure things out here. I just want answers like all you guys. I can say I am not an expert on the NGTLD’s nut want to ask the questions that all of us have.
Within the next year, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will introduce hundreds of new, industry-specific Top Level Domains (TLD), such as .FOOD, to the Internet. The .FOOD domain extension will act as an alternative option to .COM or .NET, designed specifically to provide a commerce environment and information exchange network for the food industry. .FOOD will assist businesses in creating user friendly access to food related products, services and information instantaneously through accurate search engine classifications.
The food industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. As a result, food related websites have become some of the most competitive sites on the Internet. With this in mind, Dot Food, LLC is committed to educating its client base about the benefits of having a .FOOD domain extension while creating awareness among food related businesses worldwide, and maximizing pre-registration for the food industry professional or enthusiast. In addition, FoodDomainia is a gateway of information for the food industry. Along with a complete recipe and nutritional facts, the site compiles a complete U.S directory that includes all food related establishments, from farmers to grocery stores to restaurants.
By pre-registering for a .FOOD domain name on FoodDomainia, food retailers and service providers can secure a better, more professional domain name for their business, product, or service. Registrants will be instantly identified as relevant and valuable members of the food industry, will stand out among their competitors and appear stronger to online investors; all the while increasing their Search Engine Optimization.
Any Registrant that holds a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), will have priority over any other Registrant to be awarded the applied-for .FOOD domain. Brand and trademark holders should pre-register early to protect their interest.
