    Registerfly new.net domain extensions?

    New.net Domain Extensions
    Exciting and descriptive alternative domains
    You can now register up to 28 new and alternative domain extensions.

    .agent, .arts, .auction, .chat, .church, .club, .family, .free, .game, .golf, .inc, .kids, .law, .llc, .llp, .love, .ltd, .med, .mp3, .school, .scifi, .shop, .soc, .sport, .tech, .travel, .video, .xxx

    Access to these new domain names is currently available to internet users via one of several partner ISPs and users who have activated their browser with a simple to install plug-in software application. The number of internet users who have access to these new domains is growing rapidly. It already exceeds more than 180,710,501 users world-wide.

    These easy-to-remember addresses will expand the marketing opportunities of your brand. They'll attract more traffic to your websites. Some domain owners are using these names to launch new e-projects; some are pointing them to existing sites; and some are extending their current brands to the new extensions.
    RegisterFly is claiming the alternative tld's are available to 180+million users world wide?? First I've heard of this...

    Any thoughts/info?

    CLAIMING, yes, that's the right word. LOL! Just try e.g. sex.shop (definitely registered and should be "in use") in your browser and see where it brings you, and you'll know. new.net has been around for quite a while, but noone is taking them seriously.

    I think new.net claims, registrars just resell new.net services.

    I also think these names are crap

    THe Newnet plugin is horrible. My mother had it installed in her computer, and she keep having trouble going to regular sites. To remove the damn plugin is even worse. There are tons of registry keys that have to be deleted, and the program itself has a long annoying uninstall process. Horrible indeed. I dont know how is it that they have been around as long as they have. They shouldnt be out cheating people.
