Entitled “New gTLDs: a new Big Bang for domain names,” the 11th white paper to be produced by Afnic provides insight into the advantages and issues of the new gTLDs. It is intended for use by the general public, trademarks, and Web users wishing to keep up to date on developments in the domain name system.

 

In practical terms, this new guide explains how the global program to expand the domain name system will be deployed.

In a dozen pages and graphics, the special report:

  • Provides a precise classification system for gTLDs: definitions, distribution, etc.
  • Addresses the issues involved in new gTLDs: the objectives of the ICANN program, the high added value of domain names, etc
  •  Reviews the program for the new gTLDs: calendar, rates, launch phases, marketing, etc.
