anyone have experience with .law or other new-fangled TLDs?

I know the whole topic of acquiring a TLD can be fraught with interest; my question has more to do with what happens once you have it. I have a client interested in a .law domain. Has anyone run into problems with this TLD, either in dealing with registrars, DNS difficulties, or getting Microsoft hosted exchange or Google Apps working with it? [more inside]

Public or inexpensive whois lookup service

I have a several-thousand word set. I would like to check each word to see if a .com domain (or other TLD) name is available. The command-line whois binary throttles my scripted requests after about 10 searches. Is there a reasonably comprehensive whois service that is free or inexpensive, which I can query in scripted manner, via a command-line session?

Is the .NET tld as "reputable-sounding" as a .COM for a company?

After weeks and weeks of making lists for a name for my studio, I saw that it was not available as a .com but was as a .net, and it got me thinking: Is a .net as good as a .com or is does it sound cheap in comparison? Also, how would you rate different tlds in terms of "sounding professional"? [more inside]

Use a .ch URL for an architecture firm named [word ending in CH]?

[ten_letter_name_ending_in_CH].com is not available. But [first_eight_letters].ch is. Is it complete folly to make this 'domain hack' the primary domain for a combined architecture and photography practice? [more inside]

Selling domains in 2011. Easy or worrisome? Help me say yes.

So someone has offered to buy a set of com/org/net domains from me. I have no real objections to selling, and my only concerns really are being sure that I get the money (and am not being scammed) and that the buyer in't an agent of a multinational corporation buying for a song to use for the next Amazon.com/google.com/flooz.com. What are my next steps? [more inside]

Just whois domain.me anyway?

Does anyone have any experience with "premium" .me domain registering. If I go to something like http://wash.me, I get a page that says it's a premium domain, owned by domain.me, and they may auction it off some day. I can apply for it, but basically have to tell them what I want to do with it. While I'm all in favor of cutting off domain squatting, I'm really not inclined to share what might be a brilliant business idea with them, at least without an NDA. [more inside]

Should I renew my TLD?

Internet Domain Filter: In 2000, I started a company (Company A) and registered a matching top-level domain. In 2005, I converted Company A into a holding company, and started a second company, which is now the operating vehicle for our consulting business. The domain registration for Company A will soon expire. Is there any point maintaining the registration? The domain name won't have a high resale value and I'm not planning on resurrecting Company A as a public business. Is there anything I'm missing?

New website on old hosting

I have some hosting. I use oldtld.com currently as a TLD, to point people at it. On oldtld.com, there are several subdirectories, which I'll call /olddir1, /olddir2, etc. What I want is to be able to buy a new TLD - newtld.com - and point it at the same hosting, yet keep the two separate.

Buying a .org but not the .com

It is a commonly held belief that enough Internet users foolishly expect every Internet domain to end in ".com", it would be a mistake to purchase and promote a domain ending in ".org" unless one can also purchase the corresponding domain in the ".com" TLD to redirect these foolish Internet users to the proper URL. Is there any statistical evidence that there are so many foolish Internet users out that that this is a necessary practice? Or is this merely unsubstantiated myth?

I guess .eu would be easier, but we want country TLDs too.

Any word on what the some of the most credible, competent, and friendly domain name registrars are for European TLDs? Looking at registering some stuff for Spain, Portugal, France, and Italy, possibly Germany and others later.

Firefox and DNS

I have managed to install my beloved Firefox on my "heavily secured" computer at work and told it to use the company proxy server (we can only go through port 80). I'm not supposed to be using anything other than IE, but, well, you understand. The problem is that I can't access any .net domains (.com, .org, .co.uk and any other TLD works as it should) with Firefox, while this is not a problem in IE. Using the IP number of a .net website brings me to the site just fine, so it seems to be a DNS issue, but I have never heard of a TLD requiring its own DNS server or a special port. I can't ask the company IT people as I'm not allowed to use FF in the first place, and the FF support forums have never even answered my question. Any ideas?
