In fact, in June 2012, Sedo, "The World's Largest Domain Marketplace", released its list of the top 10 most value new Top Level Domains. Number one on the list was .SHOP… and number 3 was dot site. A domain name within the dot site TLD can help businesses, organizations, or individuals create a memorable domain name for a reasonable price.
There were five companies that applied to create the .SITE TLD: Charleston Road Registry (owned by Google, Inc); Corn Mill, LLC (a Donutes, Inc. company); Top Level Domain Holdings Limited; DotSite Inc.; and Interlink Co, Ltd. All five applicants, if granted approval to operate the .Site Top Level Domain, intend to operate the dot site TLD as an open registry, meaning that domain names within the dot site TLD would be available for purchase by the general public. Each of the five companies that applied for the dot site TLD has been assigned a Prioritization Number by ICANN. the Prioritization number is used by ICANN to determine the order in which applicants are evaluated. The highest Prioritization number in this contention set was 1544, which was the Prioritization Number assigned to DotSite Inc. This means that all five TLDs in the contention set will have to wait for the Dot Site Inc. applicaiton to bve evaluated by ICAN before the TLDs in this contention set can move forward in the application process.
The dot site TLD is sure to be one of the most popular new TLDs introduced as part of this application round. Pre-register for your domain name in the dot SITE tld today!
