The Next Generation:
New Generic Top-Level Domains
New generic Top-Level Domains (or gTLDs) will forever change the way you live online. Expected to launch in mid to late 2013, hundreds of new gTLDs will blast open the internet namespace, allowing countless new name configurations, and better connecting people to the products, services and individuals that matter to them.

City New gTLDs
With the proven success of existing country-code gTLDs like .US, .FR and and .DE, more and more cities are looking to put themselves on the map with city new generic top-level domains. Some of the world's most influential cities have jumped on board, having applied for gTLDs like .LONDON, .TOKYO and .NYC, and each hopes to use their signature gTLD to connect their local culture to billions of Internet users worldwide.
By using a city-based TLD, local companies will be able to signal their location to customers online and differentiate themselves from other companies both nearby and abroad. Local governments and those who wish to serve them can create online spaces to better reach out to the voting public. Just as there's no telling what you'll find around a city corner, there's no limit to how a City New gTLD can represent the world's cities online.
Geographic and Cultural New gTLDS
Geographic and cultural new generic top-level domains will create spaces in which groups of people with similar interests and backgrounds can come together. Unlike country code and city new top-level domains, which correspond to specific locations, geographic and cultural new gTLDs will create entirely new locations for communities big and small to congregate online, no matter where they are in the real world.
Geographic and Cultural New gTLDs like .GAY, .SURF and .CAR will give structure to robust and widespread communities, while .QUEBEC, .BAYERN and .KIWI domains will provide a common ground for culturally and socially diverse regional areas. Whatever their purpose, Geographic and Culture New gTLDs will shine a beacon for groups of people who were previously scattered across the Internet's vast landscape, drawing them to communities where they can communicate, collaborate, and get inspired.
Generic and Functional New gTLDs
Generic and functional new generic top-level domains will serve countless purposes for a stunning multitude of interests and industries, from e-commerce (.SHOP) to romance (.LOVE) to tourism (.HOTEL). With their boundless scope and limitless appeal, these new gTLDs will clear a thrilling new territory in which anything and everything can be displayed in manners never dreamed possible.
New generic names like .WEB and .SITE will open up the generic space that have the same flexibility offered by .NET or .ORG. in a newer, wider territory brimming with promise. For users drowning in a .COM-saturated namespace, these domains are more than just a lifesaver, they could also be the opportunity of a lifetime.
