The New Frontier of the Internet…
Due to a historic announcement on 20th June 2011 by the global Internet regulator (The Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers – www.icann.org), the Domain Name industry is about to undertake the biggest revolution the internet has ever seen.
This never before seen program will allow eligible candidates apply to ICANN for new Top-Level Domains (TLDs) as of January 2012, for only a limited 90 day period.
It is anticipated that the program will provide hundreds of new TLDs such as;
Governments (.london or .capetown)
Entrepreneurs (.sport or .music)
Corporations (.nike or .ebay)
These new TLDs will be designed to co-exist with today’s current TLDs such as .com or .info.
As a result of this program, which has now been formally launched across the world, it is vital that organisations understand the impact it will have on their current digital strategies and undertake an immediate assessment of the risks and opportunities.
Global industry leader AusRegistry International, in collaboration with Lexsynergy Limited, will be operating a webinar to help interested organisations understand the impact of these changes. It is recommended that brand, corporate, legal, marketing or technology representatives alike make themselves available for this webinar in order to obtain a clear view on the implications of the new TLD program.
The Webinar will cover:
• New Top-Level Domain program overview
• Risk Assessment
• Opportunity Evaluation
• Provide requirements for participation, and
• Information on how to apply for your own TLD should you wish to do so
