The new gTLD info for Wednesday, May 4th

Interesting chat with the .GDN Registry yesterday and a surprise coming by the end of the year. I noticed that many Registrars are passing the test to become accredited to selling ".gdn" domain names. Chatting with a domainer, I was explained that there are competitors to ".gdn" domains and they are: .XYZ - .COM (of course) and .TOP. These 3 registries sell a lot of domain names have a lot of domain name registrations but the 3 of them have a specific meaning: the "xyz" term is also a way to say "and bla, bla, bla" and "top" means "on top". The "com" also has a meaning but it is hiding somewhere on the Verisign website and I am happy if someone tells me what it exactly means. On the other hand "GDN" stands for "Global Domain Name": a clear competitor to... ".com", isn't it?
