Christina DesMarais Is out today with a story about the new tlds for Inc.com.
Ever thought of the perfect domain name for your business only to find it's already been taken? If so, you'll be happy to know soon there will be a more than 6,000 percent increase in the number of website domains available.
Some will be brand-centric--think .apple for Apple or .citi for Citibank. Others will be generic top-level domains (gTLDs) such as app, .home, .book, .shop, and .design as well as others that will be specific to languages such as Japanese, Arabic and Chinese.
It's a transformation that concerns every company--even start-ups and small businesses--says David Mitnick, founder and president of DomainSkate, an Internet company that focuses on domain name arbitration disputes.
The article goes on to look at why there is a need for these tlds, who wants them and who is against them.
TheDomains.com and DomainIncite.com got a little plug from David Mitnick on good resources companies should follow to keep up on the news.
