Get your perfect domain.

In plain language, a gTLD (short for “generic top-level domain”) is a new domain extension that recently hit the market or that’s less mainstream than web addresses like .com or .net. The longer a domain extension has been around, the more competition there is for something catchy. So while gTLDs might technically be “generic domain names,” they give you the freedom to be anything but.

You’ll discover there are tailor-made gTLDs for all kinds of people, from farmers (.farm) to doctors (.doctor) — and even names so creative it’s up to you how to use them. Once you find a name you love, just complete the registration process to start using your shiny new gTLD.

Get more options.

Tried-and-true domain extensions might be more recognizable, sure, but they’ve usually been around so long that most of the shorter and catchier ones are taken. If your perfect .com or .net is taken, a gTLD gives you another shot at the perfect domain. Search new domain extensions, find the right fit and make your idea real.

Claim your niche.

Registering a new gTLD domain is a great way to create a descriptive, memorable brand in your niche. Grab one to show off your .photography online. Or let people know you’re a real .guru at what you do.

Protect your brand.

If you already have a domain with a traditional extension, register gTLDs that match it (like Lilys.bike if you already have LilysBikes.com). It’ll protect you from bad actors looking to hijack the reputation you worked so hard to build.

FAQ

Will all the new domains be available to me?

No. While there will be over 700 new domains that will be available to you, there will be another 600 or so new domains that are trademarked names - .FORD, .GUCCI, .DUPONT - and, although the owners could open them to the general public, they'll most likely reserve them for internal use.

Will the new domains change how the Internet works?

No. They might change the way people find information on the Web, though. And they might also impact how businesses build their presence online.

What makes a great domain name?

Picking the right domain is huge. Look for a name that's memorable, easy to spell and that's personalized to you or your business. Using 'real' words in your domain name, instead of made up names, will also help you get found online.

Will there be domains in languages other than English?

Yes. For the first time, speakers of nearly three dozen languages - including Arabic, Chinese, and languages based on the Cyrillic alphabet, will have their own domains. This will be a huge boon for companies that promote their products in countries where these languages are spoken.

What should I do now?

The new domains will be released over the next two years, beginning in November 2013. To increase your chances of getting the domains you want, Follow any that remotely interest you.

How much will the new domains cost?

Prices will vary for the new domains, and when available, pricing information for a new domain will be available on the www.godaddy.com/newdomains page. For many of the new domains, pricing has not yet been determined.

How do I register a domain with my trademark in it?

ICANN protects trademark owners by letting them reserve their trademarked names first before anyone else is allowed to submit registrations for a particular domain.

Does Pre-Registering a domain guarantee I'll get it?

No. Pre-Registering a domain reserves your place in our queue for that domain. The instant the registration phase opens, we'll submit our list of registrations electronically using our industry-leading technology to give you an edge.

If GoDaddy secures the name and more than one person or company has pre-registered it, all parties will be invited to a private auction to decide who gets it.
