Will New Domains Replace .Com and .Net?
The New Internet Domains
New Domain Names (gTLDs) on the New Internet

Who is Investing in the New Domains?
Know that Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and Apple are some of the heavy hitters in the field of new domains,
with Google dropping an unprecedented one hundred million bucks to kick off round one. Google has already indicated that
it is willing to invest as much as one billion in just the beginning of what many are calling the new
domain age. While there are many skeptics on the subject, who is willing to bet against the likes of Google and
Microsoft? If the new gTLDs were not going to be competitive, then why is Google investing up to one billion dollars
Why New Internet Names?
Don't change the station, at least not
yet, because without getting all nerdy with gTLD applications, ICANN, process
of how strings move from delegation record to land rush, and a host of metrics and terms associated with the new extensions,
I concede to a less than introductory lesson of the new Internet era. In a nutshell,
similar to when toll free 888 was released to augment the saturated 800 number, these gTLDs were recently approved in
order to ease the strain on the existing suffixes COM and NET. Not all domains are created equal, however. Saving the
details for another page, rest assured that only the best new extensions are represented below, and time has proven it. See

Many believe that there will be no more biased high search rankings for .com (which
means commercial), as the term "American Civil War" is to show equal as well as competitive search results
with war.click or war.media. These, and many more, are some of the most powerful second generation
