Where to register a .med name?
Can anyone recommend a good .med domain registrar?

I need to register a few .med domain names. Two of the usual domain registrars that I use do not offer .med. Any ideas?

is .MED actually released, or are you referring to .MD

?

aha, you mean .med by [New.net...]

NOT an official domain extension such as .com or .info

proceed with caution!

(New.net is a recent example) also create browser plug-ins and other software workarounds to accomplish similar effects. The one uniform fact about all these efforts is that these pseudo-TLDs are not included in the authoritative root managed by ICANN and, thus, are not resolvable by the vast majority of Internet users.

[internic.net...]
[itworld.com...]

Thank you! I found new.net, but was looking for someone who had used them to chime in, and say they were reputable.

From what I understand, there are also .pro.law and .pro.med extensions, but these are for those in the respective professions.

My client wanted to reserve .med for a product which can be used for medical purposes. I don't think a .med name is the right extension for this product.

Thank you again.
