Generic Top Level Domains (gTLD) Update
The 2014 New Year’s resolution of ICANN, divine ruler of the Internet, is to give poor old .com and its 120 million registered domains some back-up. As we speak, ICANN is rolling out hundreds of new gTLDs (generic Top Level Domains) to create an exponential increase in new domain name selection, and consequently, an equivalent increase in domain registrations potentially competitive with your brand. If you have a registered trademark, it is still not too late to take steps to preregister your mark to gain priority regarding matching new domain names in new gTLDs. Soon to be, or already available are domain names in new gTLDs such as .guru, .clothing, .contractors, .construction, .buzz, .computer and .education.
