Weekly News About Internet Domains

Part of new web domains is the now very real potential to devote to a niche topic a blog or a commercial venture with a cool domain ending and the potential for making the URLs on the site cover all needed keywords in the root of the site domain. For a client I am working on which is aimed at indexing over time for dog friendly Carmel hotels. Here the needed keyword combination simply requires a /friendlyhotels/index.html or "". Google will focus on CONTENT which by being defined in the URL forces one to make a dedicated project and motivates one to be a real authority on this niche market search theme. This example is where new web domains reach towards geek heaven; a domain which is perfectly named for its purpose and forces one to work to make it worthy of its name.

On this page you will find an index of curated news about ICANN, domain services, registrars, DNS, internet governance and a lot about new internet domain endings.
