Ogni registro .IT prima di diventare accreditato NIC, deve passare dei test di accreditamento, pertanto, credo che per quanto concerne il .IT siano tutti provider sicuri. Inoltre gestire un DNS e' molto semplice. 4 NS ridondati geograficamente ed il gioco e' fatto
Here are some answers to the questions you put; as I said, feel free to ask more, whenever you want; we shall be around.
Our commercial area is located here: http://www.giorgiotave.it/forum/comunicazione-e-annunci/ and is further sub-divided into many zones, dedicated to specific services. We have corners where to post press releases (for both web-related activities and general events; the sub-board is moderated to enhance content quality); zones where to present the users' own projects to the community, or where to notify about available places in directories. Then there is a tiny zone for non-Web-related announcements (something like a miniature version of Craigslist, not widely used).
The four more relevant pillars of the area, however, are those more focussed on web-related business and trade, namely:
Notice that each area has its own additional sub-rules, to be read carefully. Typically, there is a highlighted thread on top of the first page of discussions, called "Regole Specifiche di Sezione", which contains all the details. We tend to be quite strict when it comes to complying with these rules, and violations are punished with prejudice.
As for your question about our policy on resales of FB pages, clicks, groups and/or entire email databases, it is just our own choice, in which we strongly believe. In some cases, such operations seem to violate the rules of the portals/social networks/domains where the pages and groups live in, so we do not want to encourage "third-party misdemeanours". Same story with the resale of email addresses and personal data, which can quickly lead to unfair use of the goods acquired. At any rate, it is a part of the game we are not interested in, and we decided to rule it out of our board. It is not a choice carved in stone, and we may reconsider it in the future, but not for the moment.
As for the typical prices and profit margins, I do not have a spreadsheet to show you, nor there is an updated one available for the community. My advice is to look around, and make this a piece of your Italian-learning puzzle, discovering the best opportunities and spotting the very few risky scams (our sieves are decidedly selective, but not yet as much as we would like them to be; we are working hard on that aspect). We also have threads where one can report abuses and alert the others about fake offers or absurdly low prices (consider, however, that we do not have any minimum wage threshold here). Most likely, with the next upgrade of the whole platform, the commercial area will undergo major changes, and many loose strings will be tightened.
I think this is it. If new bits of information come to my mind, I will readily get back here and post them. In the meantime, you can roam around a bit, try to decipher the jargon in the sub-section rules (it is not that obscure, as you will see), and prepare some more questions for us to answer.
I hope you will enjoy this tiny part of Italy coming out through your computer screen, and possibly use it as the outpost to start your journey to our country.
