I've just discovered a government entity that has a .net website, and not a .gov. Seems to me that a government website would want a .gov; seems like that would be optimal, but don't really know why. Just feels like that. So, I'm wondering if this is an opportunity. I'm thinking, maybe they don't have anyone that knows anything about websites, the internet, etc... Maybe I could make a phone call, and get a nice government contract. Is there a substantive reason why a government agency would rather have a .gov vs. anything else? Do government agencies have some kind of preferential treatment when claiming .gov websites? How are these .gov's regulated? Can just anyone claim one? Is it illegal to do this? Are there any laws, etc...? I've never seen this discussed before, and this Enquiring mind wants to know.
