As we all know the Internet industry is ever-changing and it is about to change yet again. This new change will create new opportunities, especially for businesses. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers or more popularly known as ICANN has recently approved the new round of generic top-level domains (gTLDs). At present there are 22 TLDs, including the most commonly used .com, net and .org. The agency will start taking applications for the new gTLDs from January 12, 2012 to April 12, 2012.

So what is so special about the new gTLD program? It is an exclusive and a limited opportunity for large businesses to own a new gTLD of their personal choice. A new gTLD name could be a generic name, a brand name or a geographic name, or could be specific and limited to any community.

By applying in this period businesses will have the opportunity to acquire and manage their own .Brand Domain Name. Associations as well as organizations will also be permitted to apply for a gTLD linked with their organization. This is an interesting period for businesses as by getting their own personal gTLD, businesses can further strengthen their brands. Many organizations also believe that by having their own Brand Name TLD, their marketing efforts are also likely to improve.
