New Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLD) Coming Soon

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has approved the new gTLD for Internet and said that this is going to bring the biggest change in the Internet world. ICANN holds 22 gTLDs including .com .net and .org domain names. The board of directors meeting was held on 20th June 2011 and 13 out of 16 voted ‘yes’ for the new gTLD.

Register domain name for $1 was a very nice technique used by registrars to promote the new gTLDs, but I guess the expected new gTLDs will cost more. ICANN made a plan of around four to six months to create global awareness of the new gTLD. This document [PDF, 486KB] is a working draft of ICANNs plan for the launch of the new generic top-level domains. The new gTLDs may include:

  • .bank
  • .company
  • .car
  • .sports
  • .. and so on

The .thing new gTLDs will create more company specific domain names which will be better and more precise for the organizations to get their names listed in. We are not sure yet which new gTLDs are going to come out in the next few months and the prices are also not disclosed yet.

You can register new domains .com .net .org .info .biz .bz .mobi .name .eu .ca .us .ws .me .asia .tel .tv .cc .mn .in and many more from Synix Technologies on cheap and low affordable cost of domain name registration.
