New gTLD Consulting
Now just about any public or private organization anywhere in the world may apply to create a new top-level domain (New gTLD) of their name choice. The new naming system brings the possibility for an entity to effectively own, access and control Internet name spaces and achieve a competitive advantage. This has the potential to alter advertising and branding platforms and change the way consumers find information on the web, and the way businesses organize their information online. The full utility and effectiveness of the change will develop over time, but initially there are sufficient inherent benefits for a wide range of organizations to justify the investment in establishing a .brand top level domain name.
Some of the benefits of a New gTLD include:
- Global brand recognition
- Minimized possibility of cybersquatting in the New gTLD
- Nearly unlimited URLs on demand
- Increased consumer trust
