    Because there is no general section. Jerk.

    Also, this is very important because now we might not be able to compete with large companies and corporations for keywords. I'm sure that search engines will give someone with the extension ".coke" more power than your average joe's website.

    No, sorry I didnĀ“t thought about that.. The domain forum would of course not be suitable for this thread so you are right, I am the idiot here not you.

    The extension .coke will of course be more powerful if you are dealing with cola drinks.. if not, it will be like using a local domain like .fr on a site targeted towards the U.S, i.e. a disadvantage.

    All the best 2 u friendly friend

    I can just see the extension abuse now:

    Code:
    www.drink.coke
    
    www.snort.coke
    :eek:

    I guess these domains will be very expensive (heard of 6 figures). Maybe registrars buy some of these tld and offer domains with this extension? This could really change games, as someone on a cheap.deals domain might outrank your cheapdeals.com site with ease... we'll have to see, how google deals with it.
