Verisign running a new .NET campaign

Verisign is running a new .NET campaign called “Uncommonly Timeless” that is of course using a .net domain name:

Here is why Verisign thinks you should you choose a .net domain:

  • Est. 1985
    .net is one of the original domain extensions for the internet. In fact, the first .net was created more than 30 years ago, paving the way for the internet that is such a central part of our lives today. No other domain is more established than .net — a true original.
  • ˜15 Million Registered
    .net is one of the most popular and appealing domain extensions today. It’s hosted in more than 200 countries and is available in more than 400 languages. That adds up to ˜15 million people and businesses around the world that choose .net to power their presence online.
  • Universally Trusted
    .net has been operating with a record of 100% reliability for more than 15 years, earning it the trust of millions of people and businesses over the years. It has stood the test of time, so it’s no wonder it’s one of the most desirable domains today.

Verisign also released a new video for the campaign:

“Some things stand the test of time, like .net, one of the original domains on the internet. In fact, the first domain name ever created was Now, with approximately 15 million registrations, .net is one of the most popular domains today, and has earned the trust of people and businesses worldwide.

Our newest campaign, Uncommonly Timeless, highlights .net’s enduring appeal as a domain that is recognized as original and reliable. Take a look at the video above to see just what we mean, and visit to learn more.

When it comes to representing you or your business online, align yourself with a timeless classic. Register a .net.”

  1. I don’t see Version using no .net.

    The extension is absolute turd, blind freddy knows it and they are wasting money trying to convince people otherwise.

  2. Its all junk, but .web has potential for a lot of domainer reges, i.e. it could end up with several million registrations and would do better than any other alt tld. Its like a fake iPhone, yeah it is will sell to some degree, but is it any good? No.

    But a serious business is going to reject .web in 8 seconds, it is obviously not a good extension when most of the world uses .com and country codes so trying to convince people it is a good extension is a waste of money.

  3. IMHO .net is a great extension if coupled with strong and fitting keywords.
    Plus, it’s trusted and it has many end users, also corporate end users, unlike many new gTLDs around …
    Long live .net! 😀

  4. Anything sounds “wimpy” gets less attention; “.net” sounds feminine.

    . “WWW”= “World Wide Web”.
    “.Web” sounds masculine; however, it is a repeat of “WWW”. This mean, it is worn out already before even get it put to work. ?

  5. I’m an old school myself; I’m sorry, “30 years ago is 30 years ago” I wouldn’t waste my time try to convince the world, from not moving forward?
