    .travel "top level domains" or Second-Level Domain
    by Anonymous on Saturday June 04 2005, @07:53PM (#15454)
    Looks like the ICANN .travel market-trial
    operators do not know the difference between
    a "top level domain" and a Second-Level Domain.
    They are sort of right, ".travel top level domains
    are not yet available". NEW.NET has .travel
    SECOND-LEVEL domains, not "top level domains".

    http://www.tralliance.info/Special%20Notice.htm

    "Warning: Do not be duped! .travel top level domains are not yet available.

    Please be advised that no entity - other than The Travel Partnership Corporation (TTPC) members - has the right to promote the registration of .travel top level domains at this time. Moreover, any company purporting to sell .travel top level domain names is doing so without authority from ICANN or Tralliance. As such, should you purchase or pre-register a .travel top level domain, prior to the anticipated Start Up Period (which will be announced on a future date), please be informed that Tralliance will not recognize such transactions under any circumstances."

    I have to wonder how new.net will handle this one. :) They've said in the past that they are friendly with ICANN. Let's just see how friendly they are now. Will they simply dump their registrants in favor of the ICANN .travel? Will they pursue legal action? What will they do about the collision in the DNS namespace? Will their plug-in differentiate and allow choice?

    All I can say is "stay tuned." It could be interesting. ICANN stated they would choose any TLD they pleased and would not recognize existing TLD's in any other root. They hurt a lot of people with the .biz fiasco and will now do the same with .xxx and .travel. What's next I wonder.

    As for .xxx, well I wouldn't expect Jason H. to just lie down and take it either. That's another one that will be interesting to watch.
