Yesterday we told you that more than a thousand new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) would be coming to join .com, .gov, .org, and the few other gTLDs we already use. We went through the list of coming additions and picked out some of our favorites.
This one was probably submitted for something other than a Robert Shaw fansite at robert.shaw, but that’s why we’re excited for it.
Quick! Someone register hank.venture, dean.venture, and rusty.venture.
This one just strikes us as funny because it’s sort of all encompassing. Everything on the Internet is online, so why do we need .online to tell us something is .online?
Finally, the Craig T. Nelson fan community has a gTLD they can rally around.
Because the Internet is a series of tubes!
Because the Internet is a series of plumbings?
We like this because it’s registered by Fox Dynamite LLC and we want to believe they tried to get .dynamite but couldn’t.
Google defined “genting” as “narrow pass through mountains; also peretak or pertak,” but it sounds like the act of doing something like a gentleman, and we like that.
BECAUSE OF COURSE!
BECAUSE EVEN MORE OF COURSE!
This was registered by Wal-Mart. Why? No idea, but this is great news for anyone named George. We imagine it’s going to be a race to grab costanza.george first.
Generally we like to promote positivity here on Geekosystem, but we like how easy it will be to register [anything].sucks in the future. This might be the best new one.
Maybe this is so people can set up memorial sites for their local Blockbuster Video?
This one sounds like the kind of top level domain we would make up if we were pretending to not know anything about the Internet. “Oohh, I’m on the Internet! I will go to double-you double-you double-you dot Internet dot computer!”
Nevermind. .website is our new go-to pretend top level domain in the above example.
We sure do love us some memes.
Treat yo self!
The stealthiest of all top level domains.
.istanbul was once .constantinople. Alright. We’re not actually that excited about this, we just wanted to make that joke.
The approved new gTLDs will begin rolling out in January, and some hosting sites are already taking pre-registrations.
