ICANN-Accredited Domain Registrar Offers New gTLD Watch List Registration Services
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - DomainPeople, a leading domain name registrar that is accredited by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), today announced a new watch list registration service in response to a planned expansion of global top level domain (gTLD) extensions. ICANN coordinates unique identifiers for the web, including top-level domain names like ".com" (for "commercial") and ."net" (for "network") or ".org" for (for "organization"). ICANN is poised to launch approximately 700 new gTLD extensions over the next year and a half, a move that is expected to significantly change the way people interact with the Internet. DomainPeople is ready to help customers make the transition and secure new domain names as they become available.
"Soon, hundreds of new top level domain extensions will join .com, .net, .org, .info and other familiar extensions. New extensions will include .web, .app, .blog, .shop, .hotel, .camera and many more, allowing a much greater level of site specificity," explained Chris Kruk, DomainPeople's product manager. "The new domain options will give people a better idea of site function, which is great for users, but the competition between industry sectors, businesses, site developers and other stakeholders will be intense for the most in-demand extensions. DomainPeople gives customers a way to secure and maintain a competitive advantage with the latest new domain release information and registration services."
A top accredited domain provider since 1999, DomainPeople recently signed the ICANN 2013 Registrar Agreement, which enhances security protections for customers and holds registrars to a higher standard than non-accredited companies. The ICANN agreement enables DomainPeople to keep customers up-to-date on the latest information about the upcoming changes through the company's watch list. Customers who want to secure relevant gTLDs can create an account for free now through the online portal that lets customers track and register new domain extensions as ICANN releases them in the coming months.
