NetworkSolutions.com has done it again.
A new promotion going out to all of their customers is marketing the new gTLD .events. The promotion features three domains, two of which are reserved by the registry thereby not available.
We have written about this issue before. If registrars are going to email their customers to get them to register, or pre-register a new gTLD domain by highlighting three domain names they should at least make sure the domains are actually available to be registered and not on the reserved or collision list.
Again its only 3 domains guys, you should be able to check those.
The promotion as you can see below, features three domains under the heading “Get great domains like”: Sports.Events, Music.Events and Conference.events
Sports.Event and Music.Events are registry reserved.
Not avaliable to be pre-registered or registered.
Conference.Events is not reserved and is still available as of publication
