    Has anyone ever dealt with IDNs, .us.com's or .uk.com's or the like?

    Does anyone think having a domain like doctors.us.com would be worth anything? It was available last time I checked, but I'm afraid of spending the registration fee.

    After some searching, I found CentralNIC. Their site looks nice. And, they seem professional. Has anyone worked with them?

    Any thoughts? I'm very interested in the prospect. Or, should I post this question somewhere else?

    What? Payment for sub-domains?? :eek: I think I will personally never do that! You are at their complete mercy for your site and if it creates some good-will and they decide to bank on it, you are in trouble!

    I suggest take whatever domain name is available, pay for it and use it. You can opt for free hosting because that you can change within no time. But people know your site by your domain name. Its really important to have full control over the domain name.

    Many hosts offer sub-domains for free. If you are going to pay for one, why not just buy a full domain?

    CentralNic's secondary domains are perfectly legit, although the domain you listed is already taken and they are really not worth as much as top level domains. These are not the same as just any subdomains as CentralNic runs a full WHOIS server and your site is not "at their mercy" because you have full control over the DNS.
