    Ok here is the idea. I am going to start a website where I will be giving you those high traffic domains whose .com version is not registered. The domains could be TLD or ccTLD.
    For example if there is a domain abc.net or abc.co.uk which receives daily traffic of about 20,000 and its .com version is not registered then I will post it on website for anyone to grab. It will be an equal opportunity for everyone.
    How does that sound?

    I have plans to start it in 2 or 3 days. I was thinking of registering a new .com domain for this purpose but then thought why not use some domain from the existing ones I have. Although the one I am going to use isn't exactly conveying the same message but I thought who cares as long as it serves it purpose right.

    I wanted to have your opinion on it as to how does it sound? I will reveal the website in 2, 3 days once it is complete.

    Shoot questions if any.

    Trademark checking will be user's responsibility. Although it won't happen much and not many domains will be TM I guess.

    It won't work, if you have a high traffic site nearly everyone will have also bought the dot com.

    You answered your question your self when you said "nearly". There are still some TLD and ccTLD domains available which receive good traffic but they don't have .com registered.

    Ok I have identified more than 20 such domains by now (and myself registered 2 of them hehe). And this only in the last two days so the more days will go by the more domains I will try to find. Also I have decided to use Wordpress for this purpose.

    I am hopeful of launching website by Monday or Tuesday. It will be www.dnsafety.com. At the moment it's just a parking page, will update nameservers tomorrow.

    Just a caution to avoid headaches, arbitration and court cases: try not to register Trademarks names.

    Cheers.

    That's because I am currently listing one domain per day. You can read more about it in FAQ on website.

    With in 15 minutes of posting the first domain, some body registered it. Congrats to who ever he/she is :)

    PS: Admins I am not receiving email notification when this thread updates. I can see I am subscribed to it but I have to come here and check and not getting any email.

    I have some plans like good old tried and tested adsense or membership fee or donation. But they all depend on the kind of response this website gets.
