Angry 10,000 Preorders A Day For The New gTLD’s

Pool: 10,000 Preorders A Day For The New gTLD’s
2009 May 21
by MHB

In a press release sent to many bloggers today, Pool.com claims that they have received on average over 10,000 backorder requests every day, over the 30 day period, for the new gTLD’s


How long before they start auctioning still non existent domains on still non existent gTLDs? Schemes like this are very bad for the domain industry as a whole.

Better yet is Weblo filing a patent on “virtual domain names”...

Can anyone explain what this virtual domain name stuff is all about? I can't be arsed to read pages of a dense patent application. Is looks on first inspection to be an attempt to patent URL forwarding. But I'm sure there is a better explanation ....

As for the 10,000 daily backorders, just goes to show there is one born every minute, or in this case, 6.94 recurring born every minute.

"If that happens, and if people are pretty happy with it in Seoul (so there are comparatively few changes), then it should be possible to get the whole thing agreed to and signed up by the end of the year. And then the whole process could open up in the first quarter of 2010.

So that’s the current timeline - although it is all dependent on you, the community, to find consensus on a lot of still-undecided issues."

Boy that's a lot of ifs and buts. I I was a betting man, I would say it didn't have a cat in hell's chance of happening first quarter 2010. When ICANN says that, they normally November of the same year ....

Re: 10,000 Preorders A Day For The New gTLD’s

I think the 'virtual domain name' patent is / or will be contested by Second life and the MMORPG game crowd.
some bloggers have surmised that it is an attempt to shake down 'avatar' owners for unique names or ID's in 2D and 3D games.
fat chance on that ...

to me, it like trying to patent 301 redirects or saying you invented ping or traceroute etc...
