Make sure you get that perfect domain — first.
In plain language, a gTLD (short for generic top-level domain) is a new domain that recently hit the market or one that’s less mainstream than website extensions like, say, .com or .net domains. If you’ve got an eye on one that’s about to open up to the public, the smart move is signing up for pre-registration.
That means we hang onto your application and submit it the very instant registration opens. (If we can’t get it, we’ll refund your registration fee.) This might seem like a lot of hustling in order to register a domain, but it makes perfect sense once you understand the benefits of gTLDs.
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. A gTLD gives you another shot at the perfect domain.
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.
If you already have a domain with a traditional extension, register gTLDs that match it. It’ll protect you from bad actors looking to hijack the reputation you worked so hard to build.
FAQ – gTLD & ccTLD Domain Names!
- What is a gTLD and why does it matter to me?The gTLD, which stands for generic top-level domain, is commonly used to describe newer domain extensions, like .guru and .photography. Like the original website extensions – .com, .org and .net – the new custom domain extensions are part of what people type into the address bar of their web browsers to get to find you online.
Thanks to these new domains, your domain suffix can now describe who you are or what you do. For example, .photography, .build and .attorney all tell visitors something about what you offer. With a gTLD, you get a web address that’s specific to you and easy to remember so you can find more customers online.
- Why are there new TLDs?The short answer is to increase your options for grabbing the perfect domain name. Turns out, there’s a bit of history involved with the full story of new domain extensions.
With .com passing its 30th birthday, many of the best and most valuable domain names have already been registered. This has long been a frustration for business owners, forcing them to make up names for their businesses just to find an available domain name.
With the introduction of gTLDs, you have a fresh chance to get the domain name you really want. Because many of the custom domain extensions are specific to particular industries, interests or cities, your web address can now tell people exactly what you do (or where you do it). This makes the new domains easy to remember and you easier to find online.
- Will there be domains in languages other than English?Oui! Thanks to the new gTLDs cctld domain names, speakers of nearly three dozen languages – including Arabic, Chinese, and languages based on the Cyrillic alphabet – will have their own available domain names. This will be a big win for companies that promote their products in countries where these languages are spoken.
- How much will the new domains cost?Prices vary for the new gTLDs, but we publish pricing information for the new domain extensions as soon as it’s available. For many of them, pricing can vary depending on market conditions. Visit this page often for the most up-to-date pricing.
- Will all the new domains be available to me?No. While there will be over 700 new domains that will be available to you, there will be another 600 or so that are trademarked names – like .ford, .gucci or .dupont – and, although the owners could open them to the general public, they’ll most likely reserve these custom domains for internal use.
- Will the new domains change how the Internet works?No, but they may change the way people find information on the web. And they may also impact how businesses build their online presence. For example, if you’re new on the block and looking to name your business, the best place to start is with a domain name search. That’ll ensure you have a web address that matches your business name.
It’s also important to keep in mind that gTLDs carry the same weight with search engines. That means websites with custom domain extensions can achieve a high ranking on search engine results pages — you aren’t locked into, say, a .com or .net if you’re concerned about search engine optimization (SEO).
- How is ICANN involved?ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is a non-profit group responsible for the coordination and oversight of the global internet system. It was ICANN that approved the new domain extensions now available. While ICANN doesn’t create these web addresses (that would be businesses called registries) it does act like an online ledger, the official record of who’s registered website extensions.
- What’s the difference between the various registration phases?All new domain extensions follow the same release phases. The first registration period is always reserved for trademark owners. During the second phase – Priority Pre-registration – anyone may increase their chances of getting a non-trademarked web address for a fee. Pre-registration comes next and allows you to get a jump on those who will try to register available domain names during General Availability, which is open to the public. During this final phase, names are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
