GAC, TLD, ICANN … here in the domain world, the acronyms rain down like opportunity. What? Was that a weird and shameless plug for awesomeness in investment and marketing? Yes. But it’s true. You already know that dropping ten bucks for the right .COM is the best advertising tool ever. But what if the right .COM isn’t available? Well that’s why we bring you New TLD Nic. He’s THE GUY (emphasis added) who not only knows what’s going on with the New TLDs (Top-Level Domains), but also can explain it all to you in actual human terms. Sometimes he does geek out a bit with GAC (Government Advisory Committee) and Collision reports, but in this report he’s confirming something we’ve been waiting to hear: contracts are getting signed.
See the previous New TLD Nic videos here.
Oh, a quick note that “going into the root” means, in simple terms, that the domain will be plugged into the Internet and begin to function as part of the Domain Name System (DNS).
Another note: We like to refer to the New TLDs as “The New Dots.”
