    First you get serious. Show me any registrar selling .mail domain. Yahoo is not promoting .mail at all. No ISP resolving .mail extension.

    On the other hand, .travel is resolving to almost 200 million internet users, either with plugin or ISP (can you count? 200,000,000).

    Oh I know, now you'll say "it's a false claim by new.net, no one take them seriously". Well then visit the following URL:

    http://www.prnewswire.com/cgi-bin/micro_stories.pl ?ACCT=156973&TICK=NEWN&STORY=/www/story/06-19-2003 /0001968278&EDATE=Jun+19,+2003

    Many registrars and resellers are selling .travel. This must be a twilight zone for you, huh? I smell fear, cause you're LATE. :)

    Don't waste your time more and get your domain at one of those registrars. Otherwise you'll loose it forever.

    www.easyspace.com
    www.bulkregister.com
    www.dodora.net/drs
    www.dollardomainname.com
    www.easy-internic.com
    www.registerfly.com - soon

    CIAO :) mr. serious

    User #2810 Info
    From your list of registrars dollardomainname [dollardomainname.com], easyspace [easyspace.com], and easy-internic [easy-internic.com] all draw a distinction between ICANN's domains and new.net's, they are not commingled. bulkregister [bulkregister.com] doesn't mention new.net on their front page (though they do mention .kids.us), or in their FAQ, I suppose they're listed somewhere. Ditto for dodora.net [dodora.net] (BTW your non link didn't work with the drs, nor did your non link to prnewswire, but one cannot expect domain speculators to have a clue about http or HTML).

    By new.net's own audited account isn't it accessible to more like 175,000 users? And I'm not late. First, I was registering domain names back when they were free and 'desirable' names were plentiful. Second, I reported about new.net here on ICANNWatch the day they came into existence and have reported on them here numerous times since (not always or even normally critically, new.net seems to be at least half-clued, unlike many of their registrants). I haven't registered any new.net names (and can't foresee ever doing so) and have no interest I can think of in a .travel domain no matter where it comes from. If you smell fear it must be that of domain speculators (newnetters included) because they've spent all their allowance money on something with a lousy ROE. -g
