    It is a sad day when the gorilla wins. However, even though the battle for .BIZ is over, the war is not. It is that much more important that ICANN not be able to destroy another TLD or harm another business. It is also critically important that duplication be avoided, especially by the USG root since it is apparent how serious an issue it can become, technically, finacially and socially.

    There is a lot more behind the story than the practicality of the pressure from ISPs, but what is most important at this point is to move forward and provide domains that have no collisions to those who now hold Original .BIZ names. We do apologize for the very short notice. We were not notifed in advance of the PacificRoot's decision and informed our registrants within hours of receiving the message via a mail list, immediately after which the root manager unsubscribed from that list.

    I would also like to point out that ADNS, contrary to statements made in an announcement by The PacificRoot, has not had reliabilty problrems with TLD servers. The TLDs are triple redundant with secondaries in other locations as well. .BIZ domains did not stop resolving at any time. However, it is now important that those who hold .BIZ domains and wish to access them via the net must use the ORSC rootzone servers to do so. ADNS has been in business for several years and has a strong reputation for honesty and integrity. John Palmer is a n IT professional. Anyone who needs information should contact info@adns.net.

    We are not giving up the fight for the inclusive name space and will not abandon our registrants or colleagues. One of the more interesting TLDs we offer is .COM2. Holders of .BIZ domains may just find that an inviting alternative with great potential. That TLD has been available for over a year, but has not been formally launched as yet. The slogan is "W're .COM2!" Enjoy. :)
