New TLDs will change the Internet!

11 Oct

The list of new domain extensions has been recently announced! You can call it whatever you want a giant boondoggle or the greatest thing to happen to commerce since its first day, but the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) developed a New Generic Top-Level Domain (TLD) program, which allows new TLDs (nTLDs) into the Internet’s addressing system. So basically anything to the right of the dot is now fair game. You won’t just have .com and .net you’ll have .you and .book. If these applications are successful the landscape of the Internet could change drastically. To get a sneak peak check out the full list of new TLD applied-for you can click Popular new TLDS. Some of the most popular extensions are as below:

.APP,.ART, .BLOG, .BOOK, .BUZZ, .CLOUD, .CLUB, .DESIGN, .ECO, .FILM, .FREE,.FUN, .HIV, .HOME,.HORSE, .HOTEL, .LLC, .LOVE, .MAIL, .MUSIC, .NEWS, .NYC,.ONE, .SECURE, .SITE, .SHOP, .SPORT, .STORE, .WEB, . PERSIANGULF, .ISLAM, .SHIA, HALAL,…etc.

Now it gets exciting. With some domain extensions like .GROCERY a hot item, you’ll probably see bidding wars between the companies likes of Wal-mart and Carrefour.

Yes! you guessed right! Google also has entered into this big game. This huge company has applied for 100 strings including .ads, .and, .app, .baby, .blog, .earth, .youtube, .zip. See the full list at following figure.

ICANN also has provided statistics about this big race. Of the 1,930 applications received:

  • 66 are geographic name applications.
  • 116 applications are for Internationalized Domain Names, or IDNs, for strings in scripts such as Arabic, Chinese, and Cyrillic.

Applications were received from 60 countries and territories, broken down by ICANN’s geographic regions;

  • 911 from North America.
  • 675 from Europe.
  • 303 are from Asia-Pacific.
  • 24 from Latin America and the Caribbean.
  • 17 from Africa.

We should wait and see. Maybe someday you see my website’s URL as myself.nariman ! Who knows?!
