Ten Fold Engineering

Checking LinkedIn when I start my day is often something that I do first. I also do that exercise to double-check if one company which name has an ending in one of the new domain name extensions registered that new domain name.

Ten Fold Engineering belongs to these companies and has at least two domains:
  1. Its ".com";
  2. And its ".engineering".
Try this now:
  • Hit on the ".com" above and get rid of the ".com" in the URL;
  • Ad a "." right after the "d" and hit enter.
Isn't this shorter?

3 new gTLDs for "game"

There are 3 new generic Top-Level Domains for the sign "game":
  1. The .GAME new gTLD;
  2. The .GAMES new gTLD;
  3. The .游戏 (.game) new gTLD.
These 3 new gTLDs appear in the SPORT new gTLD report.

The right approach for .BRANDs

Unless I am wrong, I think that these .BRAND domain names were redirections to long URLs.
Not anymore:
  • http://location.leclerc/
  • https://www.mouvement.leclerc/
  • http://www.photomoinscher.leclerc/
  • ...
That could look like an approach for trademarks to start using their .BRAND new gTLD:
  1. Use new domain names as redirections to old long URLs;
  2. Host final contents differently;
  3. Use new ".brand" domain names and kill redirections.

The .CHLOE gTLD

The operation of the .chloe gTLD is being transferred to China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) as part of this test. Simulating an emergency registry operator transition will provide valuable insight into the effectiveness of procedures for addressing potential gTLD service interruptions.

New gTLD Subsequent Procedures

Less than 30 persons (in the world) are following-up with the new gTLD subsequent procedures.


And participants are...

This is a rather boring MP3 recording on Adobe. Names appear on the left.
