As many of you know .travel was approved by Icann but the company Tralliance has criteria that looks like it will eliminate the ability of affiliate marketers to get a domain name. Think about it - affiliates are likely to be shut out of acquiring a target domain name in a gigantic industry. Why? Because apparently affiliate marketers aren't legitimate. Believe me - this is a major issue that many affiliates (& merchants) active in the travel industry aren't aware of.

There is also that aching conflict with existing domain holders of their .travel extion (of which I am one).
