    Considering that pre-registration is free those numbers must be really distressing to TLD operators.

    Though I’m sure that a lot of people who might actually go for names aren’t really bothering pre-registering now.

    Hopefully they’ll publish the list of pre-registered slds soon. 😉

    It looks like people are taking advantage of the “free and non-binding” clause too, because I typed in some common and not too common words, and in many cases, a large number of extensions were already claimed.

    Mental Masturbation – lol

    850k Seems like a big number for products that will not be available yet for a year. I wonder how any other consumer product would feel about 100,000 pre-orders a year before launch.

    And consider none of these registries have begun advertising, which will have a big impact when tlds present themselves to their target markets.

    ” pre-orders a year before launch.”

    Those aren’t “pre-orders” they are pre-registrations. Pre-orders would suggest that they’ve been paid for or at least reserved with a credit card. You can go ahead and pre-register 1,000,000 names because it “is free and non-binding.” I suppose a company could overbid on an extension because these pre-registrations could be misleading.

    Time is money: why bother to search for extensions, create an account etc. if you are not, at least interested to know about the domain? These pre-orders are excellent leads and in my opinion most of them will become actual domain names…
