    Sorry for the late answer as I was not here since a while.
    They (1and1) do, but they don't want to do anything specific for the moment.
    We proposed them all the .best promotions on registrations and renewals since our acquisition.

    Can't believe so much "negative" comments without any information.

    Pre-registration/Information website for .Best influencers : www.the.best

    i.e - Examples of reviewers website : www.cyril.best, www.adrien.best, www.alexandra.best, www.julian.best, www.perrine.best, www.fabrice.best, www.heloise.best, www.stephane.best, www.honore.best, www.parisien.best, www.karim.best, www.steeven.best, www.christophe.best, ...

    We just started the early adopters onboarding process beginning 2020.

    Information website for .Best Brands (brand protection) : www.brands.best

    THE.Best App is ready and will be available for the .Best domain registrant first on stores after reaching 100K live .Best domains (Plan is to be live for March 2020 as we are now close to 90K .Best live domains)

    THE.Best is yet to come : pre-register now (https://the.best/register/) if you want to get & test THE.Best app and be part of the .Best community.

    Totally pointless links. You guys have put together some unknown review sites. Great for you. So what use are they to me and everyone else and is this the social site you have been talking about? A site with links to social media sites.

    What do you want to mean ???

    These examples/domains are used as "a social media account" to identify our social media users on THE.Best social network : www.the.best

    You guys claimed "All hot air without a site."

    While we already started THE.Best onboarding process with our .Best domain registrants.

    This show that you seem to have no idea of what we are doing, what our .Best domain/registrants end-users are already doing with their domains (writing reviews for rewards) and more important for people here what .Best domains could be valuable for a domainer.

    Let me know exactly what you don't get, and I will explain.

    And btw : THE.Best is not a website, it's an app - linking all .Best social media users !

    Sorry Cyril however I really don't understand barely anything on what you are doing or offering to make ,best names get traffic, sales and value. And the social media aspect is a real mystery to me. You basically disappeared from the forum ages ago and never contacted my by some other method on what's going on or what I can or should be doing. I am in the dark on it all and why 97% of my .best names are on non-auto renew, especially with the high $18 renewal fees.

    Let's make it simple :

    With a single .Best domain, any .Best domain owner/registrant is able to join THE.Best social network, write reviews on about anything : products or services (except people) using THE.Best app, and be rewarded depending on the number of views, clicks, lead or brand-content advertizing of its reviews.

    All your reviews are public (for i.e : check www.cyril.best where you can see mine).

    So, instead of having instagram.com/namemarket, your personal identifier on THE.Best social network will be namemarket.best.

    Moreover, the maximum views, clicks, ... you will receive on namemarket.best, the maximum $$$ you will make (same as youtube business model)

    As for .Best domain investors, the most valuable .best domains will be the most valuable terms in every existing social networks.

    Domainers have to shift their mindset, the usage of a .Best domain will be different from others tlds as it will be mostly used not as a website but as a social media account.

    Means also that the potential market for .Best domains/buyers is +3.4B users as compare with the 100M actual domain registrants (that own 350M domains).

    As for the renewal and as it was explained in another thread, we ran a promotion during all Black Friday + full december 2019 with most .best registrars (dynadot, domain cost club, ...) that enable all our registrants to renew their .Best domains with a 50% discount (even on premium names) making it at $7.5 renewal rate for standard domains = cheaper than a .com renewal.

    The domainer's mindset is the least to worry about. What about... the rest of the internet? Who's got time to sit and write reviews all day? For nothing.

    You should never have pimped this ridiculous 'social network' fantasy (in reality a review site to try to gain SEO exposure for your service). .Best if it had any chance should have been promoted differently.

    At best fantasy, at worst fraud. You have gotten a lot of us behind you on a mediocre 'review platform that never even launches. It's not facebook, twitter etc or even remotely like a social network, or even in their league and never will be.

    All I see are pics of the nightclubs and hotels you guys visit.

    Are you treating namePros as a tool for sales, or are you willing to continue with domainers and retain them as the (base) customers? At least on this particular platform, your approach is "go get them".

    1. RegBait $1-$2 (1st year)
    2. RenewBait 0% - 50% (2nd year)
    ...

    Regarding .best social app & use of .best domain extension - great for you!
    What's in it for domainers? $20 or $200 or $2000+ or burning $s ?

    Don't tell domainers; YES, the future is bright! Many of them invested $-$$ in your vision but none in the dot best extension. Big difference.

    Don't tell me; NO, you don't see what I see!

    Regards

    Seems that your mindset is not really up-to-date.

    What about... the rest of the internet? +1.6B internet users have already write a review !

    Who's got time to sit and write reviews all day? 2 Billion Monthly active Youtubers, +1B instagramers, 100M Yelp mobile users, ... (as compare to 100M domain owners).

    Without counting that 95% of shoppers read online reviews before making a purchase !

    It's 2020 ! what you called ridiculous 'social network' has taken all the internet user attention since a while. No matter that you like it or not, 500M users are daily spending 52mn each day on TikTok.

    All the .Best

    First, we don't do money on domainers or any other .Best registrant selling our domains at $1 (1st year).

    "Many of them invested $-$$ in your vision but none in the dot best extension."

    THE.Best social network is and will be the main usage of .Best domains means that THE.Best social network and .Best are directly tied/linked together since the beginning. (Read my 1st ITW in July 2018)

    Investing in the success of .Best domains is equal to invest in the success of THE.Best social network : there is/will be no difference.

    If you don't believe in THE.Best social network, save your money.

    I mean for you Cyril. For the .best inaccessible 'social network'/review site.

    My friends are on Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. They are social true networks.

    social network
    noun
    1. 1.
      a network of social interactions and personal relationships.

    2. 2.
      a dedicated website or other application which enables users to communicate with each other by posting information, comments, messages, images, etc.

    I am sure your friends are on Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, everybody is.
    And if you have a teenager son/daughter, I am sure he/she is already on TikTok.

    What do you want to mean for me or THE.Best social network ??? I don't get it

    @Cyril.Best I see you got number of haters here. I see The.Best coming with something new to people here instead of just boring "Buy this domain" parking tag everywhere. Ignore them they gonna jump to this platform curiously in near future.

    To haters: Please Appreciate - Ask productive question and give respect - doesn't matter something is going to hit or fail. You guys are not leaders to decide that. Good luck to haters and @Cyril.Best I appreciate your team. More success ahead. This is going to be The.BEST of 2020.

    THE.Best social network was supposed to be launched Beginning of May 2020 during ICANN GDD in Paris by celebrating our 100K .Best live domains but due to the covid situation/crisis in the world, we have preferred to postpone for few weeks THE.Best launching.

    THE.Best social media app will be available first for social media users and .Best domain owners and then for brand and business owners.

    We'll announce THE.Best new launching date in the coming weeks.

    Thanks for patience.

    Don't know if it will be the best for .best but for sure it will be THE.Best social media year.

    Despite a worldwide bad sanitary/economic situation, we'll launch THE.Best before end of 2020

    We were fearing a second wave/lockdown in July/August that seems to happened now but we still keep our .Best registration traction (+111K .Best live domains now) and THE.Best is now technically ready :


    We are now just waiting for an improvement of the global covid situation before making THE.Best launching coz it did not make sense to launch a review platform for social media users when bars, restaurants, hotels were lockdown.

    We plan/expect a new launching window in September if situation gets better.

    Thanks again for your patience in this tough time for population.

    Let us know if/how we can help until THE.Best official launching.

    We'll speak in the next coming weeks, so stay tuned.

    All the .Best
