    Complete failure indeed... As if we don't have data mining and privacy issues looming over our heads already!

    Amazing... They should have just gone and registered epicfail.com instead of thenewinternet.com. It reminds of that viral youtube video that got people drilling an audio jack into their brand new iPhone 7. You know a good number of unsuspecting people will fall for it...

    Point well made. Sadly though, somewhere in his mind, he somewhat thinks he is making the internet better.
    There's a saying in Japanese that goes like this: "The nail that sticks out, gets hammered". Exactly what we have here...

    Contributing to the internet means improving upon the existing technologies while keeping the basic notions intact and backward compatible. Going against the grain is definitely asking for trouble...

    This is another data grab for resale, g o o g l e and y o u t u b e were formed from collecting off the backs of all the creators "who want to be stars" mentality and business web site owners data feeding the AI database learning mode, a m a z o n does the same- collects their sellers sales volume and supplier list and your knowledge and uses it against you, f a c e b o o k... a p p l e.... do you trust any of them??? I don't, and especially some new company coming along that want's your drivers license id just to enter the door.

    The flip side is maybe one of these "new internet" thinking companies will create an good alternative to g o o g l e and keep the net open and anonymous and address the fake PR, and fake serps and bots'- I agree they are a problem- the entire SEO game is scam as far as I am concerned. Top of the serps's does not mean best results in so many cases. Having all sorts of "social signals" is cr*p imho, means little the popular isn't always the best result. These scrapper spy bots exist all over coming out of europe and aws services I find many smaller ones I block. Maybe there will be more than one "new internet", that is backward compatible?... in time. I don't know, these f a c e b o o k log-in-or-else closed systems are good at harvesting and storing away and monopolizing on your data.... just like the latest news where the US congress is debating the sale of browsing activity. This is a mess from all angles.

    More like the old RealNames system where you can buy a bunch of keywords and let the user access your website without entering a URL/dn in the address bar.

    I remember that company, but the demise of it I didn't know. Nice of M i c r o s o f t to do that, like all the other small companies they put out of business.

    There are some very serious data privacy issues with this and it will run into problems in the EU market if it ever decides to get into it. The idea of allowing people to use domain names that are parked is also a legal minefield as a lot of bluechip companies with deep pockets park various brand names and variants.

    This is Good ? Could you explain in a little more detail?
    Maybe They could be prevented from referring to their offerings as Domains?
    Thanks

    "Keep in mind that their domains have NOTHING to do with the wide open Internet"

    It means, the domains they "register" and sell are not part of the Internet, they will not be added to the root DNS servers. The only way these domains could be resolved by anyone is through installing their software, so these domains/websites will not be accessible by anyone who does not know about them and agrees to install their software. As a matter of facts subdomains being sold some companies like domain.uk.com domain.us.com domain.de.com etc are more accessible than these domains. ICANN has no control over their domains and if they succeed and grow large, I imagine ICANN would interfere then, but as it stands it is a no go. It didn't work before and it will not work now.

    these are not real domains that you are buying. what you are buying is the right that everyone who installed their software will get redirected to you when they want to access the domain that you bought.

    if I buy internet.com and someone who has the software installed wants to access the real internet.com they will redirect the user to you instead.

    This is why those with offspring should put child proof locks on medicine cabinets and areas where brain damaging chemicals are stored.

    90%+ of internet Male users are using adult websites regularly. I think they would not do so on the new internet. They would like to build the new brave internet, with benefits only and almost no drawbacks. World is not black or white. I mean that people like to be semi anonymous on Google, even when Google meanwhile builds a psychological and physiological profile of the persons using it. The system is not ideal, but it works well for now. I believe that idea will not be adopted by companies nor people.

    I guess their trick is to convince newbies to buy 1 word .coms which are parked or not used. There are like 30+% such. But these domains are for me worthless, they could work in second life or sth, but in reality I really doubt it. Not to mention the TM infringement if there are 2 identical .coms. I can see ICANN lawyers all over the place of the new internet.
