    That's pretty cool. Unfortunately, just because someone who deserves the name gets it doesn't justify the whole mess.

    Interestingly, NeuStar reserved biz.us, museum.us, coop.us, pro.us, aero.us, net.us, org.us, com.us, info.us, name.us, etc, but not .web.us.

    BulkRegister FAILS to Register .US Domains...
    by Ron_Bennett on Wednesday April 24 2002, @07:17AM (#5955)
    User #3011 Info | http://www.wyomissing.com/bennett/
    Not sure if I'm the only one, but BulkRegister.com FAILED to register any .US domains that I'd pre-ordered. I eventually had to go through some other registrars to get some of the .US domains I wanted that were still available.

    And sadly I'm not surprised what happened...these new TLDs have been nothing but trouble - tech glitches, policy changes, and corruption that makes the "mob" look good in comparison. Not sure what the cause was with BulkRegister, but in any event I'm glad I didn't spend any extra money on pre-registrations, etc. I'm still working to recover the funds I paid to Dotster for .BIZ applications.

    BulkRegister.com Addendum...I got some...very stra

    I just checked in my BulkRegister.com account and I see I got some .US domains that I preordered, but not many others.

    It appears that BulkRegister had some technical glitches during submission of some .US applications since I got many emails from BulkRegister saying my .US domain apps were sent to the .US registry but were rejected. And yet I was able to register many of the same .US domains manually through another registrar afterwards.

    Anyways, I feel a little better knowing that I least got a few .US domains through BulkRegister...still though I lost a lot of .US domains in the process.

    Keep in mind the difference between the sunrise and the landrush.

    Web.us is registered based on a trademark. Usually this kind of domain names are sujected to less manipulation.

    During pre-registration (pandrush), we tried to register the most popular domain names (more than 300) through tucows, none of single worded domain names (most of them are )is granted to us.

    IOD? They still around? Too bad about all those .WEB speculators taking it up the fanny. Heh heh heh.

    Based on the comical releases of .info and .biz, I don't think any more TLDs will be released for years.
    Throw another strong domain like .US into the mix, and you might come to the conclusion that Chris Ambler may resemble Rip Van Winkle before IOD is allowed into the root.

    Its almost 1 day and yet I have not received any information for 8 of the registrars that I got the .us domain that I want.

    How long does it take?

    thanks!

    I tried to get screwed.us (and a few others of this sort) for use in creating subdomain addresses for protest sites, like Neustar.screwed.us or ICANN.screwed.us, but didn't manage to get any of them.

    Well, I think the fact that somebody can get a trademark on something as generic as .web, and then use it to get first shot at this as a .us domain, is a sign of how ridiculous the intellectual property system has gotten, but I do agree that it's better that those guys got .web.us instead of the various hangers-on who got most of the good names -- at least, they'll probably actually use it, perhaps to let all their current .web registrants have .web.us, though that wouldn't be very acceptable to non-U.S. registrants.

    Yeah, they can put it to good use ... in Fantasyland. They failed, miserably, then went crying: "Wah wah wah, wah wah wah, somebody please help me ...".

    They didn't have it together enough to paint the picture Daisy-Mae Dyson and Vint Surf's-Up rendered of a top-notch registry. Dyson & Cerf were obviously dead wrong in their judgements, along with the rest of the sit-on-your-ass-and-do-nothing Directors.

    No accountability. But IOD didn't shell out the bucks for top notch, vociferous advocates who should have mercilessly greased the wheels that needed greasing. IOD should have given a piece of the pie to a player ICANN respected.

    Half a pie is better than no pie at all. And right now, there is no pie.

    I notice that toys-r.us has been registered, and apparently not to the famous toy store chain. Since they're vigorous about challenging or suing anybody who comes close to infringing on their "R-Us" names, you can expect this one to receive some sort of legal attack. Right now it just goes to a GoDaddy parked domain page.
