New Domains Coming Soon (Marketer’s Alert)

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!

    Mike, thanks for the update. Something else if you can share are some ways to use the domains. Besides the obvious.

      Steve, I would be thinking of creating benefit-laden URLs that make “contextual” sense. E.g. or, etc.

      These domains will be especially beneficial to anybody who is using PURLs (personalized URLS), since you could create some great PURLs like

    That would take, to, or,, to whole new level. The dot whatever will enhance the message of the url. Game changer.

    These are very cool and I’m looking forward to using them. BUT

    We don’t want to forget are tried and true .com this is what most people will remember when they tried to remember our websites.

    The new domains will be just another arrow in our quiver. I’m especially looking forward to the .news and .promo

    Thanks for the tip Mike!
