Your question was: What do web sites made from godaddy.com look like??.
Why, does it have to many characters Seriously, what's the deal?..
No harm tryin' lucks at, say $5 a'pop, but too bad (heard quite expensive).
How much is it, btw?..
With the $240 reg and then the TM issue, it doesent make sense..
You spend $240 and still you might not get the HostGator if someone with a close mark around the whole of asia wants it...
I saw info that .asia will only be available to general public from 15 february 2008 at 1 yr cost of 90$..
Just a small correction $90 for 2 yrs. Its min period of reg is 2 years and thats for $90.
Plus a first time application fee of $150..
TMs I can understand. There are many keywords though with no TMs and what about LLL?.
It does seem a bit pricey though!..
What I can conclude is at to be able to convert the value of your investment, you need to take keywords / dictionary domains.
LLL or generics wont go up in value in a hurry for now. and with the pricey reg fee, it's better to get dictionary domains. But dictionary domains can be marks. we are talking about the whole of asia here :\ just consider the probability of how many companies might have the same mark. We dont so it's a lose lose imo...
If I can get poker.asia and blackjack.asia for $240, then that would be great.
Other than that.... it is very pricyy....
After all the sunrise nonsense, EuroDNS / AsiaDNS will be doing them for 18 Euro per year, bit less than $90.....
Hmm, how can you ever think of that ? Those will go for eye popping $$$$. But I personally think .asia is not gonna do well with English generics. IDN's in .asia will perform better...
.asia ..................... so so so expensive!.
TMs are easy to create. Ask the .eu people. Start a fictitious company named P&O&K&E&R, and you can register Poker.eu.
Same thing might happen with .asia I suppose.
Anybody wanna start a company named S&E&X?..
Yes, sign me up as a co-founder.
This has been one of my pet peeves for many years. I have always tried to play the game right, and the new registries are giving preference to TM scams. A few tld's ago (I forget which) they didn't even bother checking for the TM's. Some TM's are essentially worthless, except for the TM scam of grabbing names in sunrise. There are TM's on phrases that have been in common use for thousands of years (I own a HostGator that was recently TM'd by somebody else, I held the HostGator prior to their existence and not using it in an infringing manner). The list goes on and on.
