Watch How gTLD’s Can Help Your Business
The new Top-Level Domains are a giant expansion of possibilities on the Internet that has been approved by ICANN (International Corporation for Assign Names and Numbers).
Branded Top Level Domain Names
By owning your own .brand (dotBrand) TLD you can effectively leverage your brand equity and differentiate your company online from your competition. It makes it even easier for your customers to find you and for the partner companies, affiliates and suppliers that you support to organise themselves around your brand name. You can also use your top-level domain .brand extension as a source of generating business and income for your company because you can create second-level registrations and agreements with suppliers, distributors, and other partners who are aligned with the brand. You can either offer these at no cost or you can charge for them. Either way you are in control of your brand and how you want it to be managed in the online space.
