This is a marketing alert about the new domains coming soon and offering smart marketers unique new ways to get their message on the Internet. For some time, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has been preparing to introduce a whole new range of generic top level domains and if you’re like me, this like being a kid in a candy store.

Since I use GoDaddy, I can sign up to be alerted when these domains are available for registration.  According to GoDaddy’s web site (non-affiliate article link here), there are several categories of new names, including:

  • Business
  • Commerce
  • Education
  • Food & Drink
  • Generic
  • Geographic
  • Government
  • Health
  • Industry
  • Lifestyle & Identity
  • Media
  • Money & Finance
  • Professional
  • Real Estate
  • Sport
  • Technology

And as a quick sampling, some of the more interesting new domains coming are:

  • A — .academy .ads .app .art
  • B — .blog .book .business .buy .buzz
  • C — .ceo .club .coupon
  • D — .deal .deals .dental .doctor
  • E — .expert
  • F — .finance .free
  • G — .gives .gift .guru
  • H — .health .help .how
  • I — .inc .insurance
  • L — .lawyer .love
  • M — .management .marketing .money
  • N — .news .now
  • O — .online
  • P — .party .promo
  • R — .realestate .reviews
  • S — .save .school .shop .site .solutions
  • T — .tech .technology .tour .trading
  • U — .university
  • V — .ventures .vip
  • W — .web .wow

I’m sure even this short list gets your marketing juices flowing.  I know it did mine.  You can visit GoDaddy’s web site and put yourself on a notification list, which is what I did.  I’m not sure which domain registrars will be carrying these new domain names and if you use a different registrar, you should check with them.

When these new domains become available, it will be a mad rush to snatch up the best of the best and if this article and list inspires you, you don’t want to miss out!
