Your question was: Is godaddy web hosting a good hosting?.
I think in the long run .asia is going to increase...
I think .asia will be a flop like .name..
I reckon it will be like .eu where it could have been a lot better but isn't absolutely awful. Therefore, only the top generics and LLLs will be a sure bet...
Any one knows which website is best for Asia Pre-Registration?.
There will be many Asian Pre-Registration websites to be opened but I need the one which catches the domains most in Pre-Registration.
There is no catching. If there is more than one registration request, the registrar is gonna skin you ... um, I mean, auction the HostGator over at Pool...
EuroDNS/AsiaDNS are offering 18EURO registrations plus a free .asia.com subdomain..
Obviously if you're buying now you'll still have to pay the sunrise fee on top of your 18 Euros...
Pre-registrating a HostGator name is no use, if there are multiple requests. It will be auctioned by Pool. But you can bid via your registrar instead of doing it via Pool...
Lol - everyone, or most, is dogging the .asia domain...
But I bet many in here are placing their orders/bids..
It's all about speculation.
This same situation happened with .mobi and we all know now what prices .mobi names are selling in the market...
I can't wait to buy air()asia and wait for the budget airline airasia()com to buy the name from me...
Just one name for me to complete my list , gotta wait to feb for land rush..
I think .asia will be important for future.
Asia population 1/3 world population..
Click to referenece:.
I think most generic names will have really high bids, that I won't be able to beat.
At first I entered "singapore" it said "free" thankfully I was smart enough to momentarily understand that dreams don't come true so easely, and later learned about the bidding thing..
Regarding this restriction:.
Who can register .ASIA HostGator names?.
* Companies, organizations, events, and individuals. * NOTE: All .ASIA registrations must include at least one contact who resides in one of the .ASIA countries.*.
Is there a way around this? I haven't fully done my homework on this yet, but is there anyone here who is outside the list of countries and that will still be registering them?.
Could you please explain the method of getting round the restriction dare I say, or is this something strictly enforced?..
I think most countries conected to the pacific ??? do the good old google search ? .
I am in australia ....... we are ok for it..
All they require is *a* contact. I would think that a tech contact running dns servers would suffice for that requirement.
I run dns servers in Seattle. I am almost certain there are a lot of people here running dns servers. Maybe we need to find somebody in Australia running dns as a tech contact... hint hint. I could provide secondary dns to their primary, or some deal like that.
Its rather interesting if there is a way for people like myself (In the UK) to still be able to purchase a .asia someway...
Correction: If you are not a TM owner, or have this as the name of your business entity, then you pre-registered the rights to compete in an auction with the zillion other individuals that will also try to pre-register this domain.
I would be amazed if this HostGator is not picked up in the sunrise period before landrush, when the people with Marks or business entities pick up all the best domains. Here is some info on the most recent TM on "Discover":.
Mark Drawing Code: (4) STANDARD CHARACTER MARK.
Registration Date: May 29, 2007.
Link to tarr status page: http://tarr.uspto.gov/servlet/tarr?r...entry=78828148.
I counted about 36 TM's with "Discover" alone in the full mark search [FM] at USPTO. I didn't bother to count how many were making the Standard Character claim.
I do believe that the person getting this will get a very high quality domain.
I dont live in europe or germany ....... but europeregistry offered to be my "agent' when I wanted a .co.uk and a .de ,i am sure the same will apply here..
Cool, if theres a way then I'm happy about that...
