7 Things You Need to Know About .APP by Google Registry

Launches of new generic top-level domains have slowed down considerably in recent years. And that’s a not a bad thing. With 500+ gTLDs now available, not including country-code extensions, there is a domain out there for almost about every conceivable vertical.  And many of these domains have limited or narrow use cases. But every now and then, a new and important gTLD comes to market.

Do business with a .CORP domain name

If you think that .CORPORATION as an extension is too long or if .INC doesn’t suit your business, then maybe .CORP will! With the new domain extensions being released this year, businesses will have more options to choose from on which extension represents them best on the Internet.

The .CORP extension is going to be great for small businesses because, like .INC, of how people associate the word corporation with large business conglomerates. For a small business and being able to secure a .CORP domain, it gives your business a certain level of confidence.

How can you use this extension?

If the .CORP suits your company better than the other business extensions, then just use your name and register YourName.CORP. Your re-branded and re-named domain now matches your company name!

Again, for those who still love your .COM or .CA name, having a .CORP domain can still be useful to you. There is a method called domain forwarding, which simply re-directs anyone who types in your .CORP domain to your .COM or .CA website. It’s a convenient and easy way to keep your customers happy.

Pre-Register NOW

Make sure to pre-register for this gTLD and any other extensions you might be interested in by heading over to www.webnames.ca/pre-registration.

Pre-registering is free, there is no commitment to buy the domain at this point and you’ll be the first to know when your selected pre-registration become available.

All gTLD information is readily available for all individuals. You can access information on this gTLD by going to the .CORP gTLD page which will be updated regularly as more details become available.

These new domain extensions are a huge opportunity for businesses and individuals. In order to showcase the benefits of these new extensions, we are highlighting a new gTLD each week!

This week, we want to highlight .MONEY gTLD; a highly generic term, but a term that resonates with a lot of individuals and companies. Interestingly enough, only two applicants have applied for the authority to act as the registry for the .MONEY gTLD.

Why will .MONEY be special? Well, mainly because this gTLD will be initially operated as a blank slate. Meaning, its use and purpose will be determined by the registrants within the domain extension. The gTLD will evolve according to how registrants shape their domains and websites within the extension. For example: If registrants shape their websites as e-commerce websites, then it would be an online marketplace, etc.
