    Fantastic for porn. No more of this .com business. From now on, I'll be on the look-out for all .cum websites.

    So, after the first 100 vanity TLDs, there will be a price drop since you've recouped the cost of implementation, right ICANN? :rolleyes:

    Wonder if these will require a one-time setup fee, or if there will be an annual fee for "maintenance"? Seems like a lucrative business opportunity if you can nab the right TLD...

    I thought that never got approved by the powers that be? It didn't fail, just a bunch on paper pushers didn't let it happen.

    Don't forget .orgy and .jiz, as well (to complement .org and .biz).
