List of dotBrand websites launched to date
ICANN’s new gTLD program has many more brands applying for its top-level domain, far beyond expectations. And 400+ new gTLDs have launched so far (new domain extensions like .CHURCH, .CLUB, .LINK, and .WEBSITE) with more to come. In the mix are dotBrand TLDs, those that are exclusively used by a branded corporation / organization / entity. My research has found that 50% of Interbrand’s Top 100 Global Brands applied for new gTLDs. This is a list of active dotBrand websites launched to date:
Those are brands with TLDs and live websites. And, there are also brands (individuals and organizations) that are using new gTLDs (without getting their own TLD), and a I’m also curating this list of top websites using new gTLDs.
Know of others with new gTLD websites? Please add a comment and let the world know.
Ed.note: the term “launched” can refer to 1 of 2 things, “delegated” (which means that TLD is integrated onto the Internet ecosystem and could work) and what I call “active” (which means that TLD is running on the Internet ecosystem and there’s at least one website up and running on its own, not as a redirect URL or landing page).
