    if the dot web will be launched a Web.com (aka netsol) will be getting a lot of traffic.. tons of traffic.

    go.web on the banner but people will go to go.web.com instead of go.web

    dot.web - just another useless extension like as dotsite. dotwebsite dotonline dotonl etc..

    what is this I’m hearing ? Verisign is catching up ;) .web aye

    The proof is in the pudding, as I keep on saying “exact match keyword combinations” with the right extensions matching the keyword will prove to be valuable ^

    Maybe PRO .com investors can step off the high horse and acknowledge this wonderful news ^

    It’s simply a matter of educating the common consumer as was the case when informing consumers 20 years ago they can now advertise online

    I would never use a .web and similar domains for my own business.

    .com + ccTLD = win situation!

    I don’t know what your business is, however owning the exact match keyword to your industry followed by the matching .extension is a valuable part in achieving total efficiency and the best results when ranking online

    similar to my example(s) I co own,

    easy.credit

    &

    Firstly the education system should use gTLD in books for students.
    Everyone is learned to use .com or .net + .eu .us from schooling times. We need books for new kids that they learn from start about dot-something domains.

    I whole heartedly agree that educating the average consumer is important ^

    I do believe though it’s all a matter of adopting the said idea and will grow on from there ^ same for every new idea from riding a bike to driving a car to flying a plane ^

    Hi

    if .web goes live
    then
    web.com will get tons of typo traffic
    and they, could start sub-domaining like crazy

    ie: www.web.web.com

    imo...

    The word "web" sounds more resistant (stable) than the word "net" in my topinion.

    Is there a lawsuit against VeriSign and the .web extension? 100 million dollar or something.

    Sorry but that's a boomer extension, who still calls the internet "web"? :ROFL: Back in high school, I remember I referred to it as the web, and kids laughed, this was many years ago.

    People don't say world wide web or the web like they used to.

    Just adding value to .online imo. Which would you rather own;

    NamesCon.online
    or
    NamesCon,web

    .web is old school, and .online is on fire!
