What do y’all think of the new top level domains that will be coming out soon? See this article if you don’t know what these are: http://www.pcworld.com/article/257430/the_top_10_proposed_new_toplevel_domains_so_far.html
Personally, I think this is interesting, but ultimately will have little impact. For individual companies and websites, .something is going to be economically out of reach for most of them (a dot domain costs ~$200,000). For those that can afford it, I don’t really see the point. .com is in the lexicon, and anyone who wants to see Nike’s website knows it is nike.com. I don’t see how .nike is more convenient.
There are some interesting top level domains, like .app or .today where they would be domains for specific topics. Like if the dope had an app, they could have straightdope.app where you would be able to download the app, or .today would be what’s new today. But like .xxx, I don’t see too much use for them. People look for .com, and straightdope.app isn’t much more convenient than app.straightdope.com.
