I was taking alook at some of the domains for sale at the domain auction site sedo and I came across a domain f.ly so it would be www.f.ly I think it was up for about $10'000. Does anyone beleve that a domain like this would be worth that much? I'm just so amazed because to literally spells out fly and makes it seem like theres no extension, what are your views on domains like this... are they worthless? are they rare but cool names to have?

(http://www.iana.org), the Domain Name Servers that host the zone files for the ccTLD .ly have been disabled.
The ccTLD .ly has made repeated official requests to the above authority to relocate the Name Servers to an independent environment, to ensure the continued operation of the .ly zone. Unfortunately, these requests, so far, have been declined by IANA.
Consequently, your .ly domain name(s), along with all other .ly domain names, will cease to function until corrective action is taken by IANA to rectify the matter.
IANA is the international authority responsible for the management of ccTLD functionality. Thereby, only IANA has the power and authority to rectify this problem and reactivate the .ly name zone, consequently, allowing your domain name(s) to function.
Despite our best efforts to maintain the continued operation of the .ly zone, its failure today is totally outside our control. The effect of this is explained in the disclaimer within our advertised Business Terms which each registrant has signed up to during the time of registering a .ly domain name. See our business terms at http://www.lydomains.com/businessTerms.htm.
To get more information or to make a comment, please write to IANA at [email protected].
Meanwhile, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience that may be caused. We will endeavour to keep you informed of any future developments.
