The winners of the Afilias Global Innovation Contest for New TLD Ideas are in.
As the countdown for the ICANN gTLD program ticks away its final 100 days, potential dot Brand applicants have to make important decisions in a short space of time: whether to apply for a new TLD, how to best leverage a new top-level domain, and which gTLD partner to choose.
Free global event features business, branding, and Internet experts focusing on the strategic questions surrounding new TLDs for brands
"Global Innovation Contest for New TLD Ideas" represents first-of-its-kind competition for defining new domain concepts
DUBLIN -- October 3, 2011 -- Afilias Limited, a leading Internet registry services provider, today announced a rapid-fire contest to generate ideas for new top-level domains (new TLDs). As organizations consider whether or not to invest in new TLDs under the forthcoming ICANN New TLD program, they may not consider all the possibilities for new TLDs. The "Afilias Global Innovation Contest for New TLD Ideas" is designed to address that issue.
During this session, go behind the scenes with Afilias SVP and CMO Roland LaPlante as he engages in a discussion of key lessons learned from the original New gTLD launch (.INFO) and New gTLD launches since then. Learn how New gTLD owners can apply these valuable lessons learned to their own launches with an eye towards ensuring a smooth and successful launch.
Time will be reserved for Q&A at the conclusion of the session.
Afilias research reveals that Internet experts predict a decline in brands’ use of social media
when brand-owned domains hit the market
New research from registry services provider Afilias reveals that the launch of branded generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs) will likely mark the start of a decline in the number of brands using social networks.
Afilias is proud to be a Diamond Sponsor of the 2013 NewDomains.org event, running 28-29 October 2013 in Munich. The timing of the event couldn’t be better since ICANN has now taken a giant step forward in the new gTLD program with the delegation of several new TLDs — two in Russian, one in Chinese and one in Arabic.
Afilias is a founding sponsor of the Digital Marketing & gTLD Strategy Congress.
Mark your calendars and make your plans to attend the UK & European edition of the Digital Marketing and gTLD Strategy Congress. A unique event for round one gTLD applicants, non-applicant & prospective applicant brands and their advisors.
