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.
