An outstanding way of selling advertising space on the internet by the sale of Domains on a second World Wide Web gave birth to the idea of “The second web.” A young Austrian student, Julian Z started the project with the motive of creating a whole new world wide web.
The Home-Page features a virtual web browser that allows users to browse through a completely new internet. The Home-Page is called TheSecondWeb.net. Domains are being sold for 5 dollars each. The only Top Level Domain currently available on The Second Web is dot com. Owners of Domains can display limitless content on their SecondWeb pages, including links to pages in the “First Web”, thereby making the Domains on “The Second Web” a good advertising opportunity. Information from the founder’s blog has it that a number of domain orders have been received from the very day of launch. Also according to Twitter Feeds, there really seems to be an interest in this new, unique form of advertising. Domains like “google.com” and “casino.com” have already been registered on The Second Web, but there still seem to be a few good domain names available.
