New Web Domains - About:

The first new web domains were launched in 2014 and continue to be released. These domain extensions - known as "new generic top-level domain(s)" or new gTLD(s) - offer a chance for you to have per topic niche / brand & market control.

Examples of new Internet domain extensions:

1) A made in Palo Alto SEO blog hosted on - with personalization and clarity in purpose!
  2) SEO Meetups at Iterate.Live.
 3) A dot Properties project I am working on about Palo Alto Rentals.



- Increase in international extensions for non-English web users.

- City name extensions will promote tourist destinations and help greatly in bringing an international brand to a local market.

- Just like we can today search a file type such as PDF, in time, we may be able to search sites that use a given web domain ending!

- May create more high value content online (as webmasters expand their pages to become authority sites on selected terms and/or themes).

- Should make it easy to recall a website name by association with what the brand does or what the website presents.
