Internet governing body, ICANN has decided to expand the generic top-level domain (gTLD) space currently restricted to 21 gTLDs. The introduction of new gTLDs will bring more innovation and choice to the Internet's addressing system. Lot of new TLd's and gTLD applications submitted to icann with different tld extension (http://newdomaintlds.blogspot.com/)
I just want to know what will be the Dominating TLD extension in future. Kindly vote for your TLD.
I suppose .shop would be most profitable for domain speculators...
As with any new extension there will be a LOT of money spent (wasted) by newbe "domainers". And many domains dropped next year.
The only people who really profit from releasing new names are registrars/ICANN
I wish we could pick any two/three letter extension.
I would like to have me.xx (xx = my initials)
I Personally like .FREE extention because it is easy market free items like free ebooks, free web hosting etc., and one more point this tld is completely free (Restricted to one domain for one)
.FREE seemed to be fine if people don't abuse it since it's free (not that free because a lot of them are classified as "premium" domains and if you register more than a number of domains you will have to pay).
I voted .SHOP because I think brands will use it to promote their services to the world so the TLD would be popular.
Anyway, ICANN is only trying to earn from it, well... let's see.
what you mean by abusing due to free ?.
already .tk free domain is successfully free domain provider without abuse. even you can register unlimited free domains without restriction but .free is restricted to only one domain per account or one domain per one person so i don't think it will be abused.
I prefer .shop for shopping service sites. So wonder why it isn't available, too late.
