    Maybe you should have looked more closely.
    ICANN cannot ignore New.net .travel registrations. There are about 175 million people out there with access to New.net domain names (verified by PWC). New.net enabled ISPs would probably drop New.nets .travel and support the ICANN one. But we would still have more than 125 million people which will be routet (via browser plug-in) to .travel Domain names registered with New.net. Most of these plug-ins where distributed in the US an Europe via popular programs like Kazaa file sharing. In effect approximately four out of five US Internet user would see ICANN .travel sites and one out five would see New.net travel sites.

    In contrast to ARNI (alternate .biz), name-space (alternate .info, .museum), Domainisland (alternate .name), IOD (.web) New.net has 175 enabled Internet users and many active sites. In addition there plug-in sits out of the control of ICANN above the DNS.

    If the ICANN .travel registry nevertheless wants to exculde New.net .travel domain name owners I will be happy about the error traffic which was intended for the ICANN version of the business.travel domain name.

    business.travelnic.PRO will be back online soon with FREE sub-domains. Dowload the FREE plug-in at

    Simon, no one takes you or New.net seriously. Never will either.

    Surely if ICANN doesn't work with new.net, then their plug in will be illegal once the new gTLD .travel goes live? The new net plug in modifies proprietary software, thereby stealing traffic, similar to hacking DVD encyption codes perhaps? Why is .travel so popular anyway? It just seems to illogically overlap .com .info .aero and .gov All it does is create unessary cost and confusion for very little if any benefit? Is it simply a case of ICANN needing to be seen to be doing something?
