I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably could give you an answer..
I am not saying that .eu is done. I am making a general point that it is impossible to predict the future standings of.
TLD's. With a European population of 725,000,000 many would have.
That .eu would have done much better than it actually has...
Totally agree. there are over 350 million internet users in eu and I also thought the HostGator name would do better...
50 yrs from now it will be:.
100 yrs from now it will be:.
Agree with you !.
All the .DE lovers, do you really know anything about .DE ? .
Rules ? Law ?
Quite a few for various reasons - my personal problem with it was that the EU is made up of many different countries with different languages. Thus Domain.Eu may not mean alot in half the EU states..
Add on the fact quite a few EU member states dont really care that much for the EU and prefer to be proud of their nation.....
.net will disappear, .com will resist the increasing power of ccTLDs till the internet will change totally and we will not use domains anymore, but this is not going to happen for at least another 10 years...
I don't see .net going away.com is not under a threat, plenty of use in the US alone for both .net and .com until some major change renders extensions obsolete (as you mentioned)...
I guess people have different philosophies about TLD. I too would like to see the real statistics. Initially I thought that .info was more valuable than .org but after reading this tread I will definitely pay more attention to .org domains. Thanks for sharing the info guys...
Well, it does make sense to have a .us , but unfortunately the big guys did not do a good job in handling the whole internet...
Its amazing how many people underestimate .CO.UK and it's where alot of the money is..
For the first part I would say: -.
3.ORG (or 4th?).
4.DE (or 3rd?).
I think co.uk is over estimated, of course Britain is highly populated, English speaking & a good economy but I hate 4 letter split extensions, it comes across as limited to to Britain unlike .com, .org. net.info etc... even tld's like .in & .ws feel more global....
It is valuable though if your site or market is focused at Britain...
I am also confused to see this listing. I think it needs some review...
