    Hi,

    What do you think about the .secure domain name extension (currently pending but apparently soon available)?
    Do you think that it has potential/future and that it's an interesting extension?

    Thanks to share your thoughts on it!

    I think it will probably do as well and be as sought after as all the other new extensions.

    I'm curious as to how much reg fee will be. I have pre-ordered several one word already.

    Do you think the reg price will be $20-$40-$80?
    I have pre-registered a couple and one is even a 2 letter word .secure.
    How does this all work? I've gotten confirmation on my pre-registered names. Now when the pre-release opens for those that pre-registered do they charge a premium price for the premium names or is it just reg fee?

    I have no idea. They say they will release that information later which seems like a shoddy way of doing business to me. However judging by what they consider 'premium' and what they charge in other extensions it could be anything up to 4 figures I guess for an optimum word. Eg:
    email.secure (available for prereg)
    email.storage $700
    email.insurance $800
    email.observer $1200 (the mind boggles)

    You can be sure that the main winners of all this will be the registrars. They are now the 'cybersquatters' :p

    Have you ever pre registered a domain name?

    No. There seems little point as only established extensions have weathered the storm. Even less when they won't even tell you what they're going to charge you. Also there is the worry that once you have a domain they suddenly slap you with a huge renewal on it.

    True. I just remember in the past when they released other extensions they auctioned off all the super premium ones so even if you pre-registered it you had to win auction to get it. I hope this is not the case on this one. thanks

    Thanks for your replies.

    I'm kind of a newbie in the domain name space but I think that the .secure domain name extension seems to me one of the most useful / relevant extension (there are many crappy ones).

    I've also pre-registered several .secure domain names, but I'm not very optimistic about it and also fear something similar happening (auction-like system to get the domain even if you pre-registered).

    What I've been reading about it is not everyone is going to be able to use it. There is going to be strict regulation on companies that use it and must pass strenuous security checks and protocol to insure the security of the .secure extension.
