    What about one word .best domain hacks such as dum.best? Ha.

    In all fairness, first lady Melania Trump, coined her first initiative with best secondary [Be Best]

    BeBest.Gov forwards to whitehouse.gov/bebest/

    BeBest.com and BeBe.st are for sale.

    Be.Best doesn't resolve, and google chrome suggests I go to Be.Be or I search google for best.

    Though, a WHOIS appears to be active. And it's the second time [The.Best is the other] I've noticed The Best SAS was assigned as the registrar.

    But if you own the registry, why register the domain instead of keeping it in reserved status?

    Maybe it was registered prior to the TLD acquisition?

    Or maybe it was needed to develop and show as a proof of concept for prospective buyers?

    This got me wondering about the registration status of Hotel(s).best. (FWIW: Hotels.best was registered apprx two minutes before Hotel.best)

    VS

    The 2017 registration dates lead me to believe Hotel(s).best was registered before The Best SAS acquired the TLD, and maybe inherited the work done on the domain(s) by the previous TLD owner?

    Nonetheless, after seeing that PREMLEAD has several premium .BEST domains under their name, I am now curious to know how much of the apprx 10,944 registered .best domains are internally owned/registered/operated?

    I already explain this regarding our ICO. We worked on our own crypto (the bestcoin) from Jan 2018 until July 2018 and even created our own token for presales. This is why I said it in this ITW.

    But due to the lack of regulations in France, and after discussion with AMF (=SEC in France), we decided in August to postpone our ICO when the regulations will be OK in France.

    As for France, in case you don't know but regulations on cryptos only happens with "la loi de finance 2019".

    Right now, our strategy with the Crypto is more to wait that the crypto market cleared plus building our own community through THE.Best social network as we thought it would be easier to presales our token to our existing community later.

    I like the way you probably want to create confusion but this as nothing to do with the NDA that we are asking to Namebios.

    Plus, we don't hide behing any NDA, but I would just remind you that since GDPR is active here in Europe: no one (both registry or registrar) is now authorized to communicate on EU registrants info.

    Probably, it's something funny from you in the US but trust me that here in Europe, none is now playing with this game to disclose any information on registrants. I would even say that as a Registry we also have strong rules/policy on data privacy with ICANN. So, without any NDA we are not authorize to communicate any registrant info.

    Same player shoot gain.

    Best,

    CF

    Cyril Fremont: Well, this number is indeed two objectives of us.

    1) First, we just launched an ICO (www.coin.best) where we started selling our crypto token in presales for $100 Million USD.”

    Please explain. “Presales of $100 million.”

    Nothing new, Like it was said in many of our ITW (you can check it on our DNW ITW), PREMLEAD bought few .best premium names (less than 20 premium domains i guess) to test the extension before making the acquisition of the .best.

    As a .Best Registry, we have now a strict limited number of 100 reserved domains that are reserved for the registry only (go.best, brands.best, ...)

    It's fully public, you can check the number here : https://www.ntldstats.com/tld/best

    15. Reserved - Registry Operator acts as Registrar 91 0 0.83%

    Welcome the registry world.

    Best,

    Your post begets my replyyy

    I can crack it (again).
    But no need to unlock any level because I am already at the .top level.

    Well, here is the solution:

    Neither is .best .top nor is .top .best because .best is .best and .top is .top and whoever can read can confirm this.

    The decisive difference is just, that .best got topped by .top while .top can't get topped by .best or any other TLD, no matter if old or newww

    A Presales is a period (usually few months) before an ICO (usually one month) when you put part of your cryptocurrency stock in sales at a discount price before the ICO period.

    Usually, it is for early adopters that want get a discount on the value at the ICO.

    Like I said, even for presaling your token you need regulations coz you need in terms of accountability to beeing able to recognize any transactions (sales or presales).

    This is why we decided to postpone our ICO to later coz regulations was not yet ready in France.

    I could even say that we wait from Jan until July 2018 that the French government communicate on this (regulations) and the reason why we choose to postpone in August is because we finally had the information from the French governement that regulations will only come with "la loi de finances 2019" (= French financial law of 2019). So that we decide to move and postpone our ICO for later.

    Plus, I would even say that it was the best decision we took coz only few weeks after the full crypto market was collapsing worldwide. Now, we are just waiting for the market to be more clear (eliminate all scams) and build our own community.

    As our social network will be rewarded, we are probably one of the few projects that have a real usage to its crypto. But once more, this is not anymore a short term goal. Our short term goal is to recruit our social network community. This is where we are putting all our energy right now.

    Best,

    Visited Premlead.com

    Noted the following:

    Chrome warns that the site is trying to load scripts from unauthenticated sources

    The site is unranked by Alexa, which probably means that it gets under 10-50 visitors a day. Why a business that offers to "GET PREMIUM LEAD FROM +50.000 WEB SITES", cannot get few hundred a day for itself? I always find it amusing when a lead gen company cannot do it for itself, when a design company has a non-responsive website, when a seo company has its website sitting on http with browser warning, when... you get the idea...

    Ok, so you offered $100 million for presale, you didn’t presell $100 million. The sentence in the article is confusing so must have been a translation issue. It should have said “We are offering $100 million worth of our coin in an ICO”

    Hopefully you will build an alternative to the monopolized, central control, censored system in place now. If you give away domains to each user and they control their content and it is decentralized control, like separate websites that would be great. If your company only copies the mess now where FB, Twitter, etc censor and are regulated under EU laws, well just more of the same. .Best of luck.

    You are welcome. Wishing you lots of luck. You even trying to be innovative is a good welcome difference from the rest of the ngtld thing. The only innovation they come up with is pretty much how to detect what name they can call premium and jack up the prices. That is one of the reasons I am staying away from ngtlds and sticking to .coms mostly.

    Well, if this flys it is a game changer for free speech. Not sure how the Chinese can participate, but most of the “Free” world can. And if a way to locate things online without using Google, indexed within the open network, even better.

    Like I said, I will never try to convince you that there is innovation on .best except to promote your product/service (not your trademark) in another way and always in complement to a .com (trademark domain) but I also respect all people that don't see any interest in our .Best and would like to stay only with .com. Like I said, nothing wrong with that.

    Our innovation should come from the social network and like I repeated also, this is where we are putting all our energies right now coz we want to make it an innovation at scale and so opportunities for traders will come thereafter.

    Best,

    Well, don't want to reveal everything here but THE.Best (both app and website) will be the open network to our .Best users. A kind of meta search engine dedicated "only" to the .best community.

    As for China it's simple, we are actually dealing with MIIT to be approved (next year I guess) as a TLD.

    Then all chinese social media users datas will be hosted in China.

    This is why our model is also powerfull and different from the other social networks coz of decentralization.

    We are making a first test also in China on the Registry part (only in June) where .best will be in promo with west.cn to test the chinese market.

    For me I see two possible .Best domains.

    The.Best & maybe George.Best because I’m a Man United fan.

    Any other .Best combination is absolutely worthless. Including Hotels.best and every other possible keyword.

    Honestly might be the worst extension possible. I would take a .Mobi over this extension ALL DAY!

    For some odd reason I missed reading your excellent post until tonight.

    Are all the big city .best hotel names now gone?

    Also, the 1,000 bulk sale you talk about above is not part of the big 1M$ pending hotels.best and hotel.best deal, right?

    One other question, I have been reluctant to buy premium .best not because of the asking price (which I feel is often reasonable) but due to the yearly renewal fees being the same as initial price. Is that still the case or will renewal fees drop to regular levels in August? Thanks.
