Why are new domain extensions being created?

Improve your chances – Follow your favorites!

Until November 7, 2013, there were just 22 domain extensions including .COM, .NET and .ORG. Eventually there will be 700+ new extensions specific to your industry, interest, city or region. For the first time, there will also be domain extensions in non-Latin characters — Arabic, Chinese and languages based on the Cyrillic alphabet.

After nearly 30 years, it’s hard to find a good web address because many of the best domains are taken. ICANN*, the non-profit body that governs the Internet, has authorized the creation of hundreds of new domain extensions to increase your choices and encourage innovation.

Pre-registration for the first of the new domains began in November 2013, with others to follow over the next two years. To give yourself the best chance of getting the right website address, Follow the one you want. We’ll email you when pre-registration begins.

What’s in it for you

Attract new customers.

Hundreds of targeted domains – .MENU, .NYC, .CLUB, .SHOP, .企业 (enterprise) – are headed your way. With more domain extensions available, you can finally get a domain that tells people exactly what you do. Even reach customers where you do business with a domain that specifies your city or region.

Get the name you really want.

These domains are all brand new, so your chances of getting the web address you really want are better than they’ve been in years. And by that, we mean decades.

Make it memorable.

Now that part of your website description is contained in the domain extension – Brighton.CAFE, for example – many web addresses will be shorter overall. And shorter is always easier for customers to remember.

Expand your footprint online.

You now have more options to register multiple domains that apply to you –.PHOTOGRAPHY, .PHOTOS and .CAMERA for example – then forward your new domains to your existing website or use them to create new sites. The more points of access you open to your business online, the more shoppers will find you.

What should I do now?

The 700+ new domains will be released in waves over the next two years. To increase your chances of getting the domains you want, Register the ones that are available and Follow any that interest you but haven’t been released yet. We’ll email you before pre-registration begins.
