    Well, Chandelier.com was taken by one of my competitors. All my URLs forward to the same site. My New.net name cost $25, no big gamble there. And my average customer purchase is $32,500.00 (Yes, that's thirty two thousand five hundred dollars.). Remember, I fill ballrooms full of custom chandeliers. My client base is small (interior designers and hotel developers). Yeah, I know, it's a little more work for me to educate my customers about the .SHOP, but worth it. If they forget Chandelier.shop, CustomLighting.com will get them to the same place.

    Don't get me wrong. Chandelier.com is certainly the better prize, at this point. But I have to make do with Chandelier.shop, and it's working!

    If New.net goes belly-up tomorrow, no big deal for me. But I've got a feeling New.net will be around for a while.

    I notice that many of the "experts" posting here, both for and against New.net, have little (if any) experience in business other than net-related business. For instance, there is no representation within ICANN for businesses such as mine. Posters here seem very net-savvy, but don't seem to really know how to run a real brick-and-mortar business.

    Businesses such as mine need marketing tools. Proctor & Gamble, and most recently Dupont Chemical, seem to understand this.

    And guess what? If my customers can view Chandelier.shop, they can also view every other TLD that New.net has to offer.

    Yeah, I know, it would be nice if the plug-in wasn't necessary. But that's ICANN's fault (not dealing with New.net, or any of the applicants rejected back in the November follies).
