The new .vote gTLD's mission is to create a segment of the internet that provides reliable political and voter information. This venture includes .voto, which is the Spanish/Italian/Portuguese word for vote.
A lot of websites out there use candidates’ names. A lot of them aren’t associated with the candidates. One company is trying to make verifying the official site of a candidate easier by offering a new domain: “.VOTE”.
It has never been easier to find the right domain name for your business. This author hand picked 50+ cool examples of businesses which changed their web address from one of the classic domain extensions (e.g. .com, .net, .co.uk etc.) to one of the brand new TLDs, including .POKER and .LGBT.
Walmart wants the domain name Walmart.LGBT! They recently came out against the “Anti-LGBT Bill“, a piece of legislation in Arkansas where Walmart is headquartered that “opponents say sanctions discrimination against gays and lesbians”.
An open-source hardware project aimed at making the internet "a little bit safer" needs an influx of cash to continue its work... A group of engineers decided there needed to be an open-source hardware engine that could provide strong and reliable encryption and decryption for email, plus public-private key cryptography for all sorts of things from digitally signing messages and files to DNSSEC. Afilias is one of the sponsors for this industry initiative - the CrypTech project.
