    I asked this question a few months ago and no-one answered.

    most ppl here are only interested in .com & .co.uks whch are a solid buy.

    .Name is suppose to be for sado's (sorry individuals:) ) who want to plaster their name about the web - e.g in the form of their own domain e.g:

    johnsmith.name or john.smith.name etc, etc.

    this supposed to give them a 'unique id on the web' :mrgreen:

    .Name is really more of a yank thing, not big here in UK.

    your average user would never have heard of that suffix.

    waste of time at the mo unless its a big generic keyword, then moght be of use on search engines etc. :rolleyes:

    The extension is too long, it would have been better with something shorter like .id or .me
