With a new era in domain names on its way, there’ll be new opportunities for registering the address you desire with an important new extension: .WEB. Thanks to new procedures enacted by ICANN, the governing body of the Internet, many new domain extensions (sometimes known as top-level domains, or TLDs) will begin to be available, probably later in 2012 and into 2013.
One of the most desirable is projected to be .WEB, which will have universal appeal similar to .COM, as its designation is intuitively understood to be part of the Internet and not constrained by narrower definitions, such as .INFO or .ORG. Virtually any entity that aspires to be on the Internet would be a prospective applicant for a .WEB domain name, and it’s expected to be particularly attractive to those who were not able to obtain a .COM extension for their use.
So if you’re thinking about ways to broaden your appeal online, consider what a .WEB domain extension might mean for your business. Web.com has applied to be the exclusive registry for the .WEB extension, so if you’d like to preregister a prospective domain name, visit our preregistration page for the .WEB extension.
