"Global Innovation Contest for New TLD Ideas" represents first-of-its-kind competition for defining new domain concepts
DUBLIN -- October 3, 2011 -- Afilias Limited, a leading Internet registry services provider, today announced a rapid-fire contest to generate ideas for new top-level domains (new TLDs). As organizations consider whether or not to invest in new TLDs under the forthcoming ICANN New TLD program, they may not consider all the possibilities for new TLDs. The "Afilias Global Innovation Contest for New TLD Ideas" is designed to address that issue.
The second .nxt conference on new generic top-level domains recently concluded, and there was one thing that participants in the three days of passionate and informative discussions agreed on: time is running out for applicants.
With over 600 “dot Brands” applied for in 2012, and hundreds now launched, 2017 seems poised to be the Year of dotBrand!
“dotBrands” are top level domains (TLDs) that use the brand name to the right of the dot, as in www.mabanque.bnpparibas or www.home.cern. Many large companies across nearly every industry applied, including Google, Amazon, Citibank, VISA, McDonalds, Sony, HBO, and Alibaba.
