ICANN UPDATE - New TLDs - 0% Product, 100% Hype
ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is holding public meetings this week in Melbourne, Australia. Much of the agenda has been set aside to discuss the release of several new TLDs. The growing sentiment against opening up the market to these new TLDs has even drawn concern from the US Department of Commerce.
So where does Buy Domains stand on this issue? As mentioned in the past, we continue to believe that the .com is here to stay. Although new TLDs will inevitably become available, the legal issues related to them will be a serious hurdle to overcome. Patent and trademark issues as well as disputes over the ability to sell these names are problems that must be resolved before they will be available to the public.

INDUSTRY UPDATE - BulkRegister Forced to Slash Staff
In an attempt to control losses, BulkRegister.com cut over 50% of its staff this week, including CEO Tony Keyes. Co-founder Paul Judge said that the jobs were cut due to the company's "ferocious" burn rate and will help the company move towards profitability.

AFFILIATES & PARTNERS
As the Buy Domains Partner Program continues to grow, several Embedded Tools Partners are adding features that allow the customer to more easily access their domain registration tools and services. A suggested tip for all Embedded Tools Partners is to add the Domain Name Login feature to your site. By adding this simple, free button to your site, you will allow your customers to access their domain control panel from your site, where they originally registered their name.
Our Featured Partner this month, HowGreat.com provides his customers with instant access to their control panel by placing the Domain Name Login button directly below his embedded tools. Visit HowGreat.com and click on Domain Registration to see how you too can enhance your registration tools by adding the Login Feature to your site.

"I just wanted to write and tell you how much I am pleased to have transferred my domains over to Buy Domains. I previously had registered several domains using Register.com, but now that I have switched, I find your prices and services to be far better than what I had before. Please tell your web developers that they have done an exceptional job at putting together your web site."
"The 'value added' services you offer for free are excellent. Now I can frame-forward my domains and host my own web sites using my ISP account, not to mention the convenience of your email forwarding. As a software engineering manager, I am impressed by the ease of use of your site, and the one time I called for tech. support, I was pleased to get a friendly, real live person on the phone that quickly answered my questions."
"Thanks for providing such a great service. You guys are the best in my eyes and I will gladly recommend you to anyone I know that has used other domain registration services."
Thanks for all your support!
