What Do All These New gTLDs Mean for Your Business?

Extract: "The first would be simply to lock down the gTLD associated with your business type, for example if your business is named “Garcia Accounting” it would probably be in your best interest to acquire garcia.accounting and simply redirect it to your current site. Transferring your current site and emails to a new gTLD domain could be quite cumbersome, but if you are considering securing a new domain then one of the new gTLDs is a great option".

Sin dal 2013, quando all'invito dell'Icann per l'assegnazione di nuovi domini web di primo livello quattro candidati hanno risposto chiedendo l'introduzione delle estensioni .vin e .wine, le organizzazioni europee del settore vitivinicolo, diversi europarlamentari e i governi dei paesi Ue principali produttori di vino sono sul piede di guerra.
