    1. Also, this allows greater functionality for website hosting. Now if I have a company, lets call it derpaderpa, I can now have home.derpaderpa and that is my entire website host adress. ICANN oversees naming of websites. Search engines will now have to search more parts of the internet. " At $185,000 per application, estimated start-up costs of $500,000 and annual running costs of about $100,000, a .yournamehere domain will be out of reach of the smallest companies and organizations." http://goo.gl/X79gf

      Pros: Tons of websites
      Cons: SUPER EXPENSIVE

  3. I feel like this is going to make things so much confusing for the old people who dont know how to work "this here internet" (my dad). They are all used to .com and .net. If I tell my dad to type in .yournamehere he is going to react like people who dont know technology do, "Whaaaaaaaaaaat?"

  5. .yournamehere domains, costing $185,000 for the domain name, and 500,000 for the start of the website, with a maintenance of 100,000. This will allow for more personalized websites for a civilian, and as for companies, it will allow for them to make an official domain name, (coca-cola.coke,etc.).

  6. I was reading this link http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/11/new-domain-names_n_1195042.html?ref=technology&ir=Technology
    I thought it was kind of a bummer that .com was going to be replaced by like if Pepsi bought a gTLD (generic top-level domain) it would be .Pepsi just to apply for one is $185,000

  7. people are able to make .yournamehere domains which basically makes it able for you to customize the .com part in your website. i think its pretty cool it wont just be .com or .net its spicing things up for a change but what i dont like is the cost. it costs $185,000 you would be crazy (unless your a big company with lots of money) to spend that much for it especially with the economy. But if they lowered the prices it would be something i think everyone would do.

  8. .yournamehere costs $185,000 and not having it to be the same old same old .com or .net changes the webpage a lot. This program allows you to create a website more freely which is good for the people as well as many major companies world wide.

  10. They have .yournamehere domains. It costs $185,000 for the domain, start-up cost of $500,00 and annual running costs of $100,000. The pros of this is that you can make your own domain: AWESOME! The main and only downside, where in the world do you find all of that money.

  11. The ".yournamehere" domains have arrived. This means a huge opening for internet (really domain) real estate. As more and more people gain access to the internet every day, domain names would get scarce fast if left to ".com", ".org", ".uk" etc. Now companies can open doors to exciting new ways to creatively be known on the internet. Instead of being "www.coca-cola.com" Coca-Cola can now be "www.coke.cola" or "www.coke.soda", the possibilities are endless. The fees to do this are: $185,000 per application, start-up costs of $500,000 (estimated), and annual costs of about $100,000. This greatly expands the capabilities of the internet at the cost of complementing things. It could confuse many who try to find a site if they are used to traditional domains (http://tinyurl.com/8ycds33).

  12. There are now .yournamehere domains. It costs $185,000 for the domain, $500,00 to start up the website, and $100,000 for the annual running costs. Some pros are that this expands the adequacy of the internet. Some cons are that this may be confusing for some people who are not so good with the internet, and this is really expensive.

  13. You can now own your own domain name that is just for you! I like this idea because huge companies out there can finally have a chance to own there own domain that's just for them. For example, Google Inc. could now have its own domain ending in .google instead of the usual .com or other boring ones that have existed since the beginning of the internet. I'd like to see this happen! The only part that really stinks is that smaller companies won't be able to make their own domain names because not many non fortune 500 companies have about $800,000 to spare for their own personal domain names on the internet. Hope my insight is helpful GenYES.

  14. Anyone with 185,000 dollaars to spare or invest could buy their very own registry rather than using .com. I foresee confusion especially among the older demographics. However, anyone looking to invest could buy popular or soon-to-be-popular registries and make out on selling domains within their registry. I personally do not like the idea, but I still think .yournamehere registries shouldn't be restricted.

  15. There are now .yournamehere domains. It costs $185,000 for the domain, $500,00 to start up the website, and $100,000 for the annual running costs. This is manly for small or medium business. Pro easy to find websites. Con cost.

  16. .yournamehere domains are able to be purchased. It costs $185,000 for the domain, start-up cost of $50,000 and annual running costs of $100,000. The fact that you have the abillity to create your own domain leaves me mind boggled. If anyone had the money to invest in this, they should. It is going to become a booming trend. The fact you can create your own domain instead of using the boring old .com, would be fantastic. The only problem I could see is the cost, I mean where is anyone going to get that money!

  18. the actual cost if around 170 to 185,00. Although dont forget the starting/ running cost for the website. Business's are big users in this change just counting the fact that their business's can be more related to their website.

  19. You can now pay for .yournamehere domains!! As many as 2,000 domains are expected to be made to ICANN, which is the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers and they do international domains.
    This is basically the costing and other information: $185,000 per domain and start-up costs of $500,000 and annual costs of about $100,000. Simply, .yournamehere domains will be hard for the smallest companies and organizations to get. :D

  20. The big head hancho company that assigns domain names is now opening up the door for users to purchase domain endings of their choice. While the application is long and extrodinary expensive the proponents of the idea feel that it will help big name brands create a stronger identity while allowing smaller firms to latch on the domains that better describe what type of service or industry they represent. I think it will be a nice improvement and a good direction for the internet to head in. However, it might develop monopolies and smaller companies could only join .games or .eco sites allowed sub domains.

  23. Ok so I discovered that You can purchase a domain and create anything on it. To me that would be AWESOME, making funny ones and serious ones too. The big problem that I find is that it is $185,000 to purchase it and might not be such a good idea. But what I do find disturbing is that people with money and power would maybe use this depending on the class type of society that use,and use it to do bad things like lead a crowd with beliefs that others might find dangerous. So it would be amazing I shouldn't take it too serious but I'm not the only one that thinks of these ideas either. WHOOP YEAH! FIRST BLOG :) hopefully this is good.

  24. Domain name were available for purchase. I think that i is kinda cool but wouldn't buy one. The cost to buy one is $185,000 U.S. and a start up cost of $500,000 U.S.which to me is not worth in. Plus on top of that there is a yearly cost of $100,000.
