“Hundreds of New Domains coming soon!” That is the headline I read recently on www.GoDaddy.com announcing the fact that starting this summer, hundreds of new domain extensions will become available for your business.
It’s an exciting time and there are countless opportunities to register a great domain that can more closely target your market with a premium keyword or brand name. For example, this will allow you to target your business or personal website to your industry (biz.marketing), or your interest (biz.wine) or your geographic area (biz.vegas).
However, the onslaught of new gTLD’s (generic Top Level Domains) has raised many questions. For example, even though there will be many more options for domain extensions, the “internet” has generally been acclimatized for many years to automatically think and type “.com”. Does a business that builds it’s business on a domain extension like “.food” face an uphill battle trying to brand itself? Will a mortgage broker who registers a domain on “.mortgage” lose customers to the “.com” version of its name?
These questions will be played out as the new gTLD’s become available in mid-2013.
Here are categorized lists of new gTLD’s becoming available:
