Débat autour des Noms De Domaine

Doit-on donner des noms de domaine?

Les registres, qui autorisent la création technique des noms de domaines, sont à l'origine d'un nouveau débat. Donner des noms de domaine rend-il populaire une nouvelle extension Internet ? Un débat qui s’annonce houleux entre partisans et non partisans.

A warm welcome to the .GDN new gTLD

The .GDN new gTLD is launched but there is a"but".

More on gTLD.club: We all read the story of Google buying the abc.xyz domain name: an announcement which shaked the new gTLD industry (for those who forgot already: “new gTLD” stands for “new generic Top-Level Domains”). Just in case you didn’t notice: the “.GDN” new gTLD has arrived and its website says that “.gdn” stands for “Global Domain Name”.

Google to acquire "abc" domain names
Google recently acquired domain names starting with "abc" before the domain name extension. Its new company named "Alphabet" will be using the domain name abc.xyz

Google also acquired abc.global recently and seem to be registering more of these generic domain names.

Which country is to allow the use of its name as a domain name?

.BRAND new gTLDs and country names

Extract: "The Governmental Advisory Committee just published the country requirements for notification of requests for release of country/territory names as second-level domains in new gTLDs. Understand that if it is not yet possible for a .BRAND new gTLD to register a www.country name.BRAND, it could soon be possible: the table provides the respective country’s requirements for notification of requests for country names according to each country".

Question: why would the GAC publish this document if it was not to allow the registration of country names as second level domains?
