    New gTLDs .biz Round Robin Process
    posted by jon on Monday February 04 2002, @06:46AM

    dollie writes "What is going on with Neulevel now?

    I'm trying to find out what is REALLY going on with their "round robin" process of registering names that were put on hold because of the lawsuit. Their website states: "NeuLevel has begun accepting new domain name applications for the Affected Names from .BIZ-Accredited Registrars participating in the Round-Robin process. NeuLevel will accept these submissions from the Registrars until March 4, 2002.""

    Ok, where's the list of registrars participating in this? Can't find it. Can't attempt to register for one of the affected names. Why? Because the name is on registry reserve.

    I've e-mailed Neulevel, e-mailed the registrar I prefer to use, called both of them when I received no response to my e-mail. Neulevel says to talk to the registrar, the registrar says to talk to Neulevel. What's next? A drive to Virginia to go visit Neulevel?

    No one seems to want to answer questions, no one seems to want to take any type of responsibility.

    All I want to do is register for a name that was put on hold because of a duplicate claim that *I* filed.

    This has become more than difficult, and it's concerning me greatly that we're under the influence of a company doing business the Enron way!

    A response!

    "Unfortunately we don't have access to a full list of registrars that are participating in the 2B application process yet. We should be able to provide this information via our web site next week. However our advice is to contact your registrar and ask them directly. As they are the primary source of information for all your domain names."

    Now a question.

    If they don't even have a list, how is this supposed to be accomplished in only 3 weeks instead of a month? They're visibly restricting people wanting to register a .biz TLD, possibly because of the Smiley litigation and the strong response of some major registrars? I've been waiting since ICANN announced the TLD's, going through the whole registration process, and now figuring out the mess created with the round robin process.

    I'm beginning to get quite confused by all this...

    I found that 123registration.com is accepting round robin applications. However, when I got the "approved" list from Neulevel, they weren't on it! I wrote to them (123registration.com), asking about it, and they seems to be quite upset that they weren't on the list. I don't know how it turned out, but I sure hope I don't get into another "round" process.... Neulevel's circle jerk....
