1) We see no technical problems caused
by the creation of a relatively small number of new gTLDs.
2) We recommend that the root servers be monitored for increased
load caused by these new gTLDs.
3) We suggest that they be semantically "far"
from existing gTLDs, to avoid confusion. Thus, .corp would be
be bad, because it is too similar to .com.
4) Names reserved by RFCs (or near RFCs) should be avoided,
notably "local" (from the HTTP State Management draft,
which is about to be named a BCP) and those names listed in RFC
Comments concerning the layout, construction and
functionality of this site
should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
