I know some people in UK got .gov domains some time ago... maybe it was just scam.. i just wonder, is there any way at all to get .gov domain name for business ? If yes, then what type of biz it must be?
.gov domains are only for US government agencies. I think itís about trust. If you visit a .gov domain can you be sure that itís an official us government site and not a business website or anything else.
The question is: WHY would you need a .gov domain?

.gov and .edu was open to the world back in 90s but not its limited to US gov/edu only and other countries can have .gov.xx and .edu.xx (replacing xx with their country name or some has .ac.xx even...)

To bad a lot of people did not register .edu sites back then... if they would know its only for USA now
...but .gov was open for the world... as usual people was able to register .gov ? @ Bashar? Or like other gov agencies only ? Would have been cool to register newWorldOrder.gov or something like that ... but yeah... no point to talk "what if.."
In estonia, the .ee domains are limited for example only for one domain for one business or organization, usual people cant just register it ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.ee ). To bad i was to late to register http://ee.ee/ - we was thinking about it back then.. im sore some company would pay a lot of money for this now
