What Does Google’s gTLD Applications Say About The Company?

Post by Admin on Sun Feb 09, 2014 5:13 pm

The list is a little intimidating to be honest. It really does seem like Google has applied for just about everything that makes sense as well as a lot of things that make little to no sense. The obvious domains like .google and .gmail were guaranteed to show up. What’s up with the weird domains like .family, .mom and .baby? According to Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist, Vint Cerf, the strange domains were acquired because they have “interesting and creative potential.”

Why Did Google Spend $18.7M to Apply for 101 New Top Level Domains like .android and .family?

Post by Martin K. on Sun Feb 16, 2014 8:20 am

Google may be gearing up to sell top level domains (TLDs) like GoDaddy and Hover. In a blog post last year, Google listed the 101 new domains that it applied for when ICANN opened up registrations. Google paid $185,000 just to apply for each domain name, bringing the grand total to about $18.7 million to try to get these TLDs. That didn’t guarantee that the Mountain View company would actually be awarded those domains, so why did they shell out the cash to do it?
