The internet is about to get a lot bigger – really quickly. Where internet users are mostly accustomed to visiting websites that end with .com, .net, .de, or .org, starting this year, hundreds of new domain extensions (New gTLDs) will begin showing up at the end of web addresses – where .com would normally be.
There will be new web address extensions in a wide variety such as .brands, like .Google, .Netflix or .Macy; .cities such as .NYC, .London, .Berlin will have dedicated new website addresses. There will be New gTLD extensions for the Arts, Food and Drink, People and Lifestyle, Business, Services, Shopping and more.
What Makes New Top-Level Domains Possible?
ICANN, The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers is the regulatory body that governs the Domain Name System (DNS). The DNS enables people to navigate to websites using easy to remember names, like www.Amazon.com, or www.Harvard.edu instead of confusing numbers such as 434.56.567.876, which is how computers identify each other.
Web surfers will begin to see web addresses like ‘www.bags.GUCCI‘, ‘www.Drive.CHEVY‘, ‘NightClubs.NYC‘, ‘TexasHoldem.POKER‘ and millions more.
New dot-endings will change how internet users find information online, and interact on the web.
