Over 100 TLDs Added to the Internet


In 2012, ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and numbers, accepted applications to create new Top Level Domains (TLDs). A TLD is the text to the right of the final dot in a domain name. For example, .com is the most popular TLD today. 1,930 applications for new TLDs were filed with ICANN as a result of the 2012 application round.  Over 100 new TLDs have now been delegated - or added - to the Internet as a result of the 2012 application round.


January 22, 2014 - In 2012, ICANN - the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers - held an historic application round inviting companies from around the globe to apply to create new Top Level Domains (TLDs). A TLD is the text to the right of the final dot in a domain name. For example, .com is the most popular TLD today.

Over 100 new TLDs resulting from that application round have now been delegated - or added - to the Internet. The latest TLDs to be delegated were .club, .build, .pics, .pink, .luxury, .photo, .gift, .网络 (Chinese for "network"), .公司 (Chinese for "company"), .monash, .rich, .red, .shiksha, .中信 (Chinese for "CITIC"), .link, .and .guitars.

After a TLD is delegated, it must undergo a ramp-up phase during which the TLD operator puts in place the technical infrastructure required to support the new TLD.

The first new TLDs resulting from the 2012 application round are scheduled to begin selling domain names to the public on January 29, 2014 in an 'Early Access' phase prior to 'General Availability'. During the first few days of the Early Access program, domains in the first new TLDs to launch - .singles, .holdings, .guru, .clothing, .ventures, .bike, and .plumbing - will be sold for premium prices up to several thousand dollars per domain name. During this time, it is expected that customers will buy premium domain names on a first come, first served basis. After the Early Access phase is complete, prices will drop dramatically in the General Availability phase, which will commence on February 5, 2014 at 4:00 PM UTC. During the General Availability phase, domain prices will drop to a much lower rate, around $40 per domain per year. DotAnything.co will submit purchase requests at General Availability on behalf of its pre-registration customers. Learn More about our Pre-Registration process.

The table below provides a list of all of the new TLDs to be delegated to date as a result of the 2012 application round.
