Before I begin, I wanna ask: Want to start a starter webpage but it says my new domain is taken - but godaddy and yahoo main says?.

My next question is: I read this a few weeks ago and thought for sure someone would post about it. A major problem that could affect Domainers in paticular is the potential of roving "Internet Brownouts". It is predicted that under current plans and spending budgets put in place by telecommunication companies infrastucture will be inadequate by the year 2010, resulting in internet brownouts. It is estimated that the current budget of 72 billion needs to be increased to over 137 billion according to the study.

This could cripple internet business as we know it. It could eliminate entire cities and potentially countries from accessing sites for unknown amounts of time. Internet use is on the rise at an alarming rate and every site now features streaming video which hogs bandwidth. Please read this article: http://www.thestar.com/Business/article/278504.

This has serious implication for online businesses and Domainers in paticular. Imagine how screwy things are going to get with time sensitive things like Auctions.

It also has some implications for .Mobi and .TV IMO.

I was one of the first folks to start buying loads of .mobis and quickly offloaded them for a modest profit. I have always felt it is a very useful concept that actually suits a purpose. I felt .Mobi was created too late and should have been created 4 years earlier. This is what I have posted in previous posts: I was always of the opinion that infrastructure would be wireless in nature; Wimax & Wireless Broadband towers are cheap and easy to deploy versus land based lines. But according to this study infrastucture could be inadequate by 2010. This could accutally be the catalyst that makes or breaks .Mobi IMO.

On the flip side of the spectrum, my favorite ccTld .Tv could see the opposite affect.TV is touted as the internet video platform, with companies likely to tighten up on bandwith, this is really bad news for video heavy sites. Just normal pages are predicted to load slower, imagine how this will affect video downloads.

All in all this has much greater implications than just .mobi and .tv, it affects us all in alot of ways that arent fully recognized yet.

The telecomm companies better wake up and smell the coffee.

Just my opinion...

Your question was: Want to start a starter webpage but it says my new domain is taken - but godaddy and yahoo main says?.

This potential problem has been discussed before, and I don't believe it will ever occur. Every time some minor channel will be in danger of overload, it will be replaced by a better one, and there won't be a major overload....

I sure hope..

Maybe I missed in the reading or am just out of the loop. What is a brownout?..

Comment #2

For an undertermined amount of time internet will cease to function in random areas...

Comment #3

Comment #4

I have to agree with you as well. My optimistic side says that this will never happen...
