They (interent companies in charge of domain registration) have
been trying for some time to release a bunch more domains like
.biz & .web. If they were to release these then it really wouldn't
make a difference if you registered 2 or 3 of them. There would still
be more that people could take. Also the goverenment has really been
tightning the laws about trademark, copyright stuff when it comes to
domain names. Meaning if you had a business and trademark of
joes_hole.com or something and someone else came along with
joes_hole.net you would be able to sue them and take the name from
them much easier than in the past.

My opinion pick a good unique name and hope someone bigger doesn't
want it. Although I thought IonZone was unique...
