Get your perfect domain.

You’ll discover there are tailor-made gTLDs for all kinds of people, from farmers (.farm) to doctors (.doctor) — and even names so creative it’s up to you how to use them. Once you find a name you love, just complete the registration process to start using your shiny new gTLD.

Get more options.

Tried-and-true domain extensions might be more recognizable, sure, but they’ve usually been around so long that most of the shorter and catchier ones are taken. If your perfect .com or .net is taken, a gTLD gives you another shot at the perfect domain. Search new domain extensions, find the right fit and make your idea real.

Claim your niche.

Registering a new gTLD domain is a great way to create a descriptive, memorable brand in your niche. Grab one to show off your .photography online. Or let people know you’re a real .guru at what you do.

Protect your brand.

If you already have a domain with a traditional extension, register gTLDs that match it (like Lilys.bike if you already have LilysBikes.com). It’ll protect you from bad actors looking to hijack the reputation you worked so hard to build.

FAQ

What is a gTLD?

A gTLD is a “generic top-level domain” and refers to the extension at the ending of a website address, like .com, .org or .net. Generic top-level domains can be purchased and used by anyone and are not restricted to a geographical region. The “newer” gTLDs, which can also be called nTLDs, refer to the more than 1,000 domain extensions that were recently approved for generic use by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). These newer gTLDs include .xyz, .online, .vip and many, many more.

Can I register any domain extensions?

No. While there are over 700 (and counting) gTLDs that are available for anyone to register, there are a certain set of trademarked names - .FORD, .GUCCI, .DUPONT, etc. – that will be reserved for internal use within those companies, unless the owners open the gTLDs to the general public.

What are the 10 most popular top-level domains?

Are there domain extensions in languages other than English?

Yes. For the first time, speakers of nearly three dozen languages - including Arabic, Chinese, and languages based on the Cyrillic alphabet, have their own domains. This is a huge boon for companies that promote their products in countries where these languages are spoken.

How much will the new domains cost?

Prices will vary for the new domains, and when available, pricing information for a new domain will be available on the individual pages for each gTLD.

Does Pre-Registering a gTLD guarantee I’ll get it?

No. Pre-Registering a domain reserves your place in our queue for that domain. The instant the registration phase opens, we'll submit our list of registrations electronically using our industry-leading technology to give you an edge.

If GoDaddy secures the name and more than one person or company has pre-registered it, all parties will be invited to a private auction to decide who gets it.
