Tools for new gTLDs

This is a list of useful contents and tools to have a look at - or use - for parties interested in following the ICANN new gTLD program.

Trademarks and future participants willing to submit an application will find it interesting to start with having a look at our list of confusing new gTLDs.

List of tools

  1. List of confusing new gTLDs: this is a list of "extremely close" new generic Top-Level Domains which can cause confusion since the first level domain (the domain name extension) look alike. For example: domain names ending in ".ENGINEER" and ".ENGINEERING", ".DOG" and ".DOT" or ".WEB and .WED".
  2. Article explaining why it makes sense to apply for a .BRAND new gTLD to block a company from homograph attacks.
  3. The up-to-date text file of valid top-level domains maintained by the IANA (updated from time to time).
  4. Project John Wolley is is a super innovation for which I am seeking funds for the next round of the ICANN new gTLD program.
  5. Patent for Corporate Registrars (innovation): as a person who uses, plays with and tests domain names, I noticed that there are tools that I would find useful to use. There is one that I have on the paper.
  6. The "old" Jovenet Consulting:
    • The English version of the website was revamped but we kept the old one online for readers interested in digging more infos about us;
    • The French new version is not (yet?) available but we kept the old online too.
  7. List of Registrars I'd feel comfortable transferring a large domain name portfolio to.
  8. Bookmarks: a list of useful links related to new gTLDs (official websites for terminated agreements, new gTLD comments, etc).
  9. Nomulus: the back-end registry solution offered by Google on Tuesday, October 18, 2016. Trademarks or entrepreneurs with technical knowledge might be tempted by such a solution to - not necessarily - lower costs to acquire their Top-Level Domain.
  10. More to come.
