The new gTLD info for Tuesday, May 17th

Today the info is the Canon .BRAND new gTLD which is introducing a new URL for Canon’s global site: global.canon. When I read this, I tell myself: "finally, here we are" since Canon was the first Trademark to reveal its .BRAND new gTLD project in 2010. By he way, did you know that there is a .GLOBAL new gTLD too? When doing such an announcement, better check for your Trademark in the extension of your second level domain. Please, don't have a look at canon.global. Did you know that there is a .NIKON new gTLD too?
Another information: the .GDN new gTLD has more French Accredited Registrar to join soon: check the growing list here.
