Yes, sorry.. I meant to ask if it was part of the split cc-tld, or if the  
"net." part was a "for sale" domain. So in your case you're still running  
on conference.[sub].[domain].[cc-tld]

But eg. .uk.com (not .com.uk!) is quite populair, while "uk.com" is really  
just another .com domain (and a website even, promoting amongst other  
things those gambling sites). So you could eg. have jabber.example.com.uk,  
which is to put it in Matt's terms a [sub].[sub].[domain].com. I was  
wondering if the same applied here, which is not the case.
