verisign’s going to start publishing nxd data

I know a few here dabble in the domain business, it won’t effect most but could be a game changer for some.

nxd = non existent domain

In a nut shell, it will allow subscribers to see a list of the most popular ‘hits’ of non existent domains on the global root servers.

This goes live Oct 7th

if you think you’ll have a chance to get anything viable you are smoking crack. I can guarantee you that the second that list goes live, all the top domains will be taken by bots from the domain parking companies.

the top of the list wont even have 1000 requests

You’re kidding right?

There will probably be quite a few misspellings of trademarks

those misspelled trademarks are most likely already registered

I think you’ll be surprised maybe we’ll all be surprised

There was that king of domains dude that did a deal with cameroon (.cm) for all traffic to be re-directed to his servers for any NXDs on the .cm ccTLD … it was quite a big deal as well iirc

I make that mistake heaps, .cm at end, but it just errors..

Would be epic to get that though.. i’d imagine it’d be a hugely popular typo.
