    If .biz can’t make it, what makes anyone think .buzz will?

    Sorry guys your TOS for the certificates suck, all these poor people are going to end up with are either fees, or crap.buzz

    Despite trying to tell you guys that a registry is a different business than being domain name registrant you still don’t get it.

    As a registry .biz is doing great.

    The have over 2,000,000 registrations at a whole cost of over $6 its over $12 Million in revenue.

    You wouldn’t like to own that business?

    I’m sure .buzz would be popping bottles if they would have the registration volume that .biz does

    @Michael B
    If you Wiki “Neustar”, you’ll see that they do a lot more than just .BIZ. In fact, if they do only make around 12 million or so off of .BIZ, that’s a cute little portion of their total income.

    By the way, why is the price of .BUZZ so high? $34.95, which is 40% off their retail price… which would mean their retail is $58.25. With so many gTLDs, there are going to be too many choices for these high prices… although I guess they only need 206,008 registrations at the retail price to reach that “12 million dollar” mark. :/
