Re: .cc TLDs
I was told that this was where I should send my comments regarding the .cc
TLD suffix, so here goes.
I am vehemently against this proposition. It's sole intent (or so it
appears) is to find yet another way to prevent the small businessman from
becoming successful on the Internet. In my opinion (and those of my
colleagues), having to "re-buy" our domain names is tantamount to
This nonsense of having my domain name sold to someone else just because I
refuse to pay for an unwanted and unneeded TLD of .cc is just plain
What is it going to be next month? Perhaps a .dd TLD or maybe we will
just milk this even farther and each month bring out a new TLD that everyone
will have to pay for. Why should we have to pay for all those people who
are late in joining the Internet? Why should we pay for THEIR reluctance
and lack of foresight?
If these newcomers want to join the Internet, let them pay the price of
having lousy names to choose from. After all it's their fault, not
ours. That's the price of first come, first served. We should not be
penalized for their lack of vision.
Join with me, PLEASE, in refusing to support the .cc suffix and discourage
others from joining this blatant attempt at extortion. You already paid
for your domain name, would you also pay for your house again just because a new
Realtor moved into the neighborhood?
Best wishes and successful hopes for all of you good people out
