The new gTLD info for Monday, May 2nd

I just registered my first ".gdn" domain name. For the moment, I will use it as a redirection to point to my contact page for Jovenet Consulting. I want to try this domain name extension because "Jovenet" is Trademarked by myself and I believe that a short 3 letters domain name extension offers two options:
  1. The possibility to use a domain name extension which could come in competition with ".com" domain names since ".gdn" stands for "Global Domain Name" and it is as short as ".com" and...cheaper.
  2. Lower the risk of infringement: I don't want someone to register my trademark using a generic Top-Level Domain: ".gdn" clearly is the equivalent to ".com" and there are many - BUT MANY - domain names still available to register.
