New TLDs Available to the Public

Since our last newsletter in January, dozens of New gTLDs have been released to the public on a first-come-first-served basis, and every day more are being delegated into the Root. Early frontrunners in terms of registrations seem to be .guru and .photography, but .bike, .today, .land, .construction (and more!) are out of the starting gate as well.

We've also seen increasing news media coverage of New gTLDs as they become available to the public.

Keep up-to-date on all the gTLDs on our New gTLD Application page!
Name Collisions Oh My! 

Although the great debate on Name Collisions has subsided since October 2013, we have a new great resource page on the Names Collision issue as it continues to unfold.


From the initial comment period and community debates to the current Alternative Path to Delegation reports, check out the Name Collisions page and feel free to edit or add to it!

NamesCon Interviews

As we reported last month, we attended the NamesCon conference in Las Vegas and had a great time talking with Domain Industry folks about our project.

Our Founder Ray King interviewed a few industry leaders - check out the videos here. We love doing this video blog collaboration with Dyn and CircleID for all conferences we attend.

See you in Singapore!


We are gearing up for ICANN Singapore in a month, so please make sure to stop by our booth and pick up your caricature if you'll be attending.


In addition to our usual card deck, we will have a new special giveaway, as well as some exciting news to share with the ICANN community!
