A domain in the .Shop TLD is a must have for ecommerce companies, brick and mortar storefronts and anyone shopping domains! More .Shop domains have been pre-registered than for any other TLD. .Shop domains are both meaningful and memorable. Imagine your website at Shoes.Shop or Brand.Shop. Large brands can differentiate their brand website from their ecommerce pages, while smaller retailers can purchase a more memorable .shop domain name for a lower price in the .Shop TLD. The possibilities are endless!
The .Shop TLD has consistently been ranked as the most popular proposed new TLD in this application round. In 2012, SEDO, a popular domain name marketplace, released its list of the top ten most valuable TLDs. Number one on the list was the .Shop TLD.
There were 9 applications filed by companies seeking to create the .Shop TLD. Most applicants for the .Shop TLD plan to sell .Shop domains to the general public, which means that, depending on which company wins the Registry Contract for .Shop, anyone could purchase a .Shop domain.
The future ownership of the .SHOP TLD will likely be decided via a bidding proceess held between the various applicants for the .Shop TLD.

is a Pre-registration?
When you pre-register for a domain name, it’s like adding it to a shopping list. DotAnything.co Inc. will keep your shopping list for you until pricing for each top level domain is announced to the public. At that time, DotAnything.co Inc. will email you and ask you to confirm your pre-registration request and provide payment in advance for every domain that you have pre-registered. DotAnything.co Inc. will put in a purchase request on your behalf as soon as domain name sales begin. DotAnything.co Inc. will refund the purchase price of any domains that do not result in an actual Registration.
- How much will my domain
Per domain pricing for each top level domain has not yet been announced. Get New TLDs will email you with per domain pricing for each of the domains that you have pre-registered prior to the General Availability date.
- Can I cancel my pre-registration?
Pre-registration requests are not final until after your pre-registration is confirmed and you have provided payment information.
- When will I get my domain
No one can guarantee that you will get every domain name that you pre-register for. No one even knows for sure which top level domains will be approved by ICANN, and which will not be. It is estimated that future new top level domain operators from this application round may begin selling domain names as early as 2014. Get New TLDs Inc. will email pre-registration customers with the expected “go live" date for each TLD that they have pre-registered for when this information becomes available.
- What types of domains can I pre-register?
You may pre-register generic names, such as names that are not trademarked. You may not pre-register for Geographic Names, Trademarked names, or names that are on the Names Collission list. Learn more about our Pre-Registration Guidelines.
