Re: Custom Top Level Domain names
I remember having a debate with a colleague years ago about the practice of squatters jumping in and buying .com names that they forsaw as possibly valuable down the road, and just sitting on them, paying the yearly fees. I don't see how that's any different from a real estate speculator buying up property hoping to make a profit. She saw the practice as shady and harmful to the growth of ecommerce. How do you think this expansion plays into that?
Seems like by increasing the volume of desirable names, squatters will need to buy more. And, I guess, in that way, it's now NOT like real estate. They're not making more land, but they can make more tlds!
