Dell.info is probably what is called a defensive registration so that it isn't taken by someone else, for example, someone apparently named Dell, or a farmer in the dell, or even [shudder, dare I say it] a cybersquatter. Dell.info doesn't lead anywhere, either with the plugin or with the dell.info.new.net extension, though it would be a relatively simple matter to mirror or redirect to what is at dell.com.|
While I'm not suggesting this was intentional, new.net can be seen as a protection racket in a sense, as can a number of ICANN accredited registrars who are quick to point out that one's name should be protected across all extensions. New.net's Sunrise provision is along the same lines, if you want to challenge for your own protection you'll have to pay for it. Such is the consequence of a flat, undifferentiated namespace, first brought to us by NSI, and we're all still paying for it in one way or another.
The only big name entity I have seen with a new.net name (through viewing new.net's featured sites) that actually works is Maxim magazine at maxim.free [if you have the plugin, ISP, or manual settings, if not, click here]. That isn't much of a posterkid example for new.net either, as it seems to be only a redirect to maximonline.com, the latter being the name given on the cover and inside the real magazine as their address, and besides, what exactly does maxim.free mean? I saw no obvious evidence of them trying to give away magazines there, though magazines often do engage in that practice. One wonders (not bothering to look) whether sex.free is a site about celibacy. We humans are a strange lot, we go from an unintuitive IP address to a counterintuitive name and consider it progress.
As to whom is sans a clue, your advert links don't point to your sex.* sites, either with the plugin or without, as they are mistyped. You might want to look into it before you enter them in the new.net site contest. I think the contest is a good idea and should be enlarged considerably. As I've said all along, what new.net needs is unique content, for example, instead of book.shop [new.net enabled here ] [new.net not enabled here] simply taking you to half.com, they could swing a deal with ebay whereby some content would only be available via new.net enablement. It has often been said: .com is King, but I'm not inclined to agree with him. To me, and I suspect most others, content is King. Le Roi est morte! Vive le Roi! -g
