An in-depth discussion on the state of new top level domains.
What makes for a good top level domain name? Well, it starts with the ABIC test. Christa Taylor of dotTBA has helped many companies apply for, plan for and/or launch top level domain names. This puts her in a unique position of seeing new domains at many stages and monitoring different strategies. On today’s show, we discuss what has happened with new top level domains so far as well as what she expects will happen in years to come. We also discuss the challenges of domain names in the Middle East. You’ll also hear about Christa’s ABIC test for determining if a new top level domain name is good. You can actually apply ABIC to other things, too. Also: Much ado about ado.com, Donuts goes travelling, Google Chrome and Verisign’s missing news.
