Do you have more questions regarding the new Top Level Domains? We have put together the answers to your FAQs here:
Top Level Domain is the part of the domain name that follows the dot. At present, the most common endings are .net, .com and .org. and country-specific endings such as .de, .fr, .uk and so on. The "new TLDs” supplement these well-known Top Level Domains and give you greater choice when selecting a domain name for your company. The nTLDs allow you to describe your business area better and more memorable. Now numerous new and highly descriptive domain endings are available, providing unlimited combination possibilities for creating highly individualized domains, for example hairdresser.cologne, horseriding-in.berlin, toys.shop - the list is endless.
More than 1,400 new Top Level Domains have been submitted as part of the application procedure. Many of them are directly linked to established brand names. Over the next few years many large international corporations, as well as smaller companies, are expected to use their own domain endings such as .vw or .ebay. In addition to the branded TLDs there will be hundreds of generic domain endings that anyone can register for. A complete listing of these can be found in our list of generic domain endings.
Registering for new TLDs offers excellent opportunities to stand out from one's competitors, as it improves describing one's business, which in turn helps customers to identify the sector of a brand simply by looking at the domain ending, let’s say .bank, .hotel or .fashion. Furthermore, it allows to indicate the language or the exact location of a business using endings like .london, .berlin or .town.
The exact launch date for all of the new domain endings is not yet certain. It depends on the progress of the ICANN’s application and approval process. The first new domain endings have been released in spring 2014, continuously followed by further ones. It is very likely that there will be a different start date for each TLD.
After your successful pre-registration of the domain, the Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) coordinates their assignment. The German contracting authority (also called "registry") DENIC is in charge of this task for .de endings, the US company VeriSign Inc. is responsible for .com endings.
Keyweb acts as an interface to the registries for you. We take care of the registration of your domain in order to ensure an uncomplicated handling.
To register special domain endings different criteria must be met. You can determine the exact criteria for your desired domains in the selection process under "Details".
For example .at domains:
A valid domain name consists of a minimum of 3 to a maximum of 63 characters. Allowed characters are "a-z", "0-9" and "-". However, the name must include at least one letter. A domain name can not begin or end with a hyphen.
The domains are assigned by the priority principle: "First come, first served". So if someone else was faster, you initially will only be able to use another name for your domain or to contact the domain owner that you found on the website of the registries, whether and under which circumstances he/she agrees to a domain transfer. The situation is different, if you have a better legal claim to the domain compared to the current owner.
You can identify premium domains after the checking. They are listed separately. They indicate particularly attractive domain names for which the registries have set higher prices.
