    Is everyone missing the part where there is a long review process, plus a registration fee costing anywhere from $100, 000 to $500, 000? I don't think this will open the floodgates to thousands of custom TLDs...

    .


    This will be AWESOME. When I first read it, I imagined people trying to register as many .tld 's as possible, but this process will be awesome.

    save lots of typing.

    news.google
    cars.ebay
    dickgirls.porno
    finance.yahoo

    I think this has to happen to keep the internet progressing. IT is hard as fuck to get a good relevant domain the way things are now. The new domains will be part of a web 3.0 or 4.0 movement.

    wonder what this will do to the price of .com's. people hording names right now because while .net/org are pretty large themselves, the reset of the TLD's have never really shot off. no one is going to pay you a huge sum of money for reallycoolname.info, people will pay a lot for reallycoolname.com.

    once you can have .anything wonder if .com will still be like that.

    This is going to fuck over alot of people/business', investors, and the general public is going to be confused as to where their sites have gone when some make the transition. I'd rather ICANN did'nt do this, I don't want someone taking my business name after the dot part. Just more money to waste on fees.

    All the old names will still exist.

    So onces things become news.google, news.google.com will still work. It will probably be like that for a long long time.

    If the purchase price is above $50K, then that's fine. Otherwise it will destory upcoming sites, and fuck them over in the long-run.

    I agree with you. The price to purchase these names have to be somewhat out of reach of regular people. This will allow people with legit reasons to get these names.

    regardless what happens, I think .com will be the "gold standard" and regardless what TLD companies get they will still need/have a .com at least.

    It could create some interesting branding and portal type setups but won't be that crazy or crash any markets or anything. If anything, it could make the domain markets even stronger and educate more investors.

    It would have to be more than 50K,
    Once you take ownership of a TLD, and if its popular enough, you can sell your own domain registrations and make that money back in no time
