How to use the new geographical domain names
The new domain extensions released in the past year change the way brand owners should invest in their online branding.

.music, .shop, .berlin
Are the new generic Top Level Domains (new gTLDs) changing the game?
Some had hoped using new gTLDs would even drive the traffic generated by a site. Early reports suggested that addresses of new gTLDS may be easier to find by search engines. The second level domains used in connection with the new web suffixes are usually shorter and contain more keywords than similar existing domain names. However, recent reports revealed that engine companies treat new gTLDs the same as traditional domains.

How Will ICANN Handle the issue of Faulty Community Evaluations?
The BGC not only has the opportunity right now to right the EIU’s wrongs and maintain integrity in their new gTLD program, but they also have the opportunity to properly serve the public interest by resetting the path of .GAY in the direction of community status. Community operation is the only option that truly ensures community benefit and protection.
