FreeYourID's new gTLD service delivers the protected, trusted, and always-on registry infrastructure needed to reliably host and operate new gTLDs.Learn More
Today's online world is defined by 22 different generic top-level domains (gTLDs), including .com and .net, and approximately 250 country code TLDs (ccTLDs) such as .de and .jp.
That is about to change. This year, organizations were allowed to apply for gTLDs associated with particular interests or business sectors. Through the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers’ (ICANN) new gTLD program, 1,930 applications for new generic top-level domains have been unveiled. These domain names may help organizations enhance branding, revenue, security and user interaction. FreeYourID has been selected to provide back-end registry services for approximately 220 applicants.
The availability of new gTLDs will create a unique opportunity for fast-acting organizations to define and acquire their own online namespace. FreeYourID brings extensive expertise in domain name system (DNS) operation to help you manage and monetize your gTLD.
As ICANN approves applications for new gTLDs, hundreds of new extensions may be introduced. Generally falling into the following categories:
Awarded applicants need to provide a secure and reliable technical infrastructure, as well as demonstrate a long-term ability to enforce policy for and administer the domain. This reinforces ICANN’s primary mission of maintaining DNS stability and security.
As the world’s largest domain name registry, already operating .com, .net, .tv, .cc, .jobs and .name, FreeYourID has maintained 100 percent operational accuracy and stability over the last decade.
FreeYourID registry customers benefit from a proven operating environment with significant economies of scale compared to developing and operating an in-house alternative. We provide premium technical services to help you launch, manage and monetize your gTLD. We can work directly with your organization or through your corporate domain name service provider.
