Again, as a DNS provider, we’re excited that we’ll be supporting all these new domains and additional ones in the future.  As I wrote in late October,  ICANN’s New Generic Top-Level Domains Program (gTLDs) were cleared to proceed to delegation.

Dan York at Circle ID explained humorously that 11 of the “delegated” new gTLDs are the following:

1) .BIKE

2) .CONSTRUCTION

3) .CONTRACTORS

4) .ESTATE

5) .GALLERY

6) .GRAPHICS

7) .LAND

8) .PLUMBING

9) .SEXY

10) .TATTOO

11) .TECHNOLOGY

The week before apparently .GURU caused some “chuckles,” but York said this new list would incite the same sort of reaction. After all, a person can now register the domain of “myhusbandis.sexy” (York used the example of “mywifeis.sexy”).

If you’re interested here’s last week’s list:

1) .CAMERA

2) .CLOTHING

3) .LIGHTING

4) .SINGLES

5) .VOYAGE

6) .GURU

7) .HOLDINGS

8) .EQUIPMENT

9) شبكة (xn--ngbc5azd) – Arabic for “web/network”

10) онлайн (xn--80asehdb) – Cyrillic for “online”

11) сайт (xn--80aswg) – Cyrillic for “site”

12) 游戏(xn--unup4y) – Chinese for “game(s)”

While York is no longer on a journey to share the releases of new gTLDs, I’ll keep an eye out for more of them and share them with all of you – this should be interesting . . .
