This year thousands of new TLDs, more commonly known as domain extensions, will begin to be launched – the aim of these is to make the internet more intuitive.
Instead of the few generic or country level domain extensions such as .com, .co.uk, .net etc that are used by most websites today, the new TLDs will give websites the chance to stand out from the crowd and immediately identify what their website is about. For example, if you are looking for a place to have a drink then look for websites with a .PUB extension, or someone might book their room at a .HOTEL or plan their next holiday itinerary at a .TOURS website.
