Many new gTLDs are headed into General Availability (GA). Once a domain extension enters this GA phase, it is registered on a first come, first served basis and anyone is eligible to register. The new domain extensions now in GA include .bike, .holdings, .singles, .plumbing, .guru, .ventures, .clothing, .construction, contractors, .directory, .kitchen, .land, .technology, .diamonds, and .today. These new gTLD extensions offer innovative options for online marketing campaigns and new choices for short keyword domains. Registering a new gTLD for your business can help protect your brand(s) within specific markets as well as optimize your naming portfolio/strategy.
