Re: Just lost a .cn domain

Let's face it, all registries have T&Cs + dispute resolution policies, and the ccTLDs tend to be way more restrictive than gTLDs. Its just increased risk that you need to factor in.

It certainly won't kill the secondary market in a ccTLD, but if relatively "normal" domains were ever "seized" by a ccTLD registry / government, it could easily have a devastating effect on resale prices. As we have seen with the collapse of the world financial system, confidence can be everything.

The truth is, you never own domains. But how close you get to owning them is registry-dependent.

"lessee beware" (don't know how to translate that in Latin, its a tricky one, sorry).
