I may not have been adequately clear in my post -
Dreamhost appears to offer the TLD .consulting ($29.99) but when I try to register a domain with that
TLD I only get the message:
[color=#FF0000]Error: Sorry. ________.consulting is a premium domain and may not be registered at this time.[/color]
You guys apparently sell registrations for this domain, as it's both on the page you linked to (under "List of Current TLDs and Pricing") and in the domain.registration panel.
So my question again - Why am I unable to register a domain using this TLD?
The domain I would like doesn't even show up under who.is queries, so must be available somehow?
EDIT: I tried visiting the domain I want, which returns a not found error, and no records for this domain seem to exist anywhere.
Also - what classifies as "premium"?
I could not find a definition for this on the DH Wiki and the word premium isn't on the page you linked to.
