New generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) applications now available
19 Jun 2012
A generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) is an internet domain name extension such as .com or .net.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has developed a new process allowing organisations to develop their own gTLDs, which may lead to the introduction of many new gTLDs other than .com or .net.
Currently there are 22 gTLDs and this could expand into the hundreds, potentially affecting many brands, business names and registered trade marks. A list of all gTLDs applied for in the first round of applications is now available for comment or third party objections.
To view this list please visit the ICANN website
