Monumental shift in internet naming – thousands of new TLD’s are coming- beginning this month!

// August 7th, 2013 // Internet

New gTLD (tld) availability timeline and launch sequence

.com is not the .end

Starting this year, over a thousand new domain name extensions (gTLDs) will begin to replace the “.com” in website name addresses.  Until now there has only been about 23 gtlds. There are also cctlds, or, country code top level domains like .de, for Germany and .ru for Russia that are widely used by their respective countries.  Soon, there will be website name endings with Brands, like .Google, or .Gucci, city names like .NYC and .LONDON, interests, like .ART, products for .BABY, .AUTO, .FOOD and more.  There will even be new internationalized website naming options for users in Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic and other languages that do not use a western alphabet.  The introduction of new domain extensions will result in a monumental shift in internet navigation, marketing and use.

ICANN has developed a system to prioritize and meter the roll out of over 1,000 new top level domains over the course of a year. This will help determine the order in which new tlds will be added to the internet. Each TLD application was assigned a priority number through lottery style auction in December 2012. That priority number will dictate the order by which applications will be processed. Each new TLD will be brought to market by way of a uniquely crafted launch sequence having distinct phases. This will determine how the names are made available to users- when, to whom, and under what conditions.

And it all begins now!

Here is the complete list of gTLDs that will be introduced beginning this month.
