What are new TLDs (nTLDs)?


New TLDs (nTLDs) are top-level domain extensions that were released starting in January 2014. ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, started the New gTLD Program with the goal of enabling the largest expansion of the Domain Name System (DNS) to date. Since this program began, there have been over 1200 new gTLDs delegated.

The first group of gTLDs were originally launched in 1985. Since then there have been a few other TLD launches including .INT in 1988, seven TLDs in 2000 including .BIZ, .INFO, .NAME, and .PRO, six "sponsored" TLDs (sTLDs) in 2004 including .MOBI and .TEL, and finally .XXX in 2011. As you can see, no other TLD launches have allowed for as much expansion as the most recent new TLDs.

Although, we have not launched all 1200 new TLDs, we do currently offer over 500 TLDs for registration (both old and new). Check out our full list of TLDs to find your dream domain today!
