The new gTLD info for Monday, April 18th

Repeating the message. New generic Top-Level Domains need to install and to do so, registries must reach out to end users. We have noticed that existing website owners won't change domain name but new creators tend to "adopt" new domains more and more. At Jovenet Consulting, we talk about new gTLDs and we are good at repeating a message again and again. To learn more about what we do, please have a look at the new version of our website.
