Guardian News and Media was founded in 1821 in Manchester UK, and currently has its headquarters in London, United Kingdom, with an office in New York. Guardian News and Media is wholly owned by the Scott Trust.

The Guardian has been known by the name “the Guardian” since 1959. Guardian News and Media Limited publishes the Guardian newspaper, which is distributed daily and weekly and also has a website at www.guardian.co.uk as well as Twitter and Facebook pages. Guardian was named Newspaper of the Year at the 2011 British Press Awards.

Guardian News and Media Limited decided to apply for the .GDN Top Level Domain because it is an abbreviation for the term “guardian” and therefore is a good representation of the Guardian brand.

Guardian News and Media Limited does not intend to sell domain names within the .GDN Top Level Domain to the public. Accordingly, Get New TLDs Inc will not accept pre-registration requests for domain names within the .GDN Top Level Domain.

Frequently Asked Questions

DotAnything.co Inc. will keep your shopping list for you until pricing for each top level domain is announced to the public. At that time, DotAnything.co Inc. will email you and ask you to confirm your pre-registration request and provide payment in advance for every domain that you have pre-registered. DotAnything.co Inc. will put in a purchase request on your behalf as soon as domain name sales begin. DotAnything.co Inc. will refund the purchase price of any domains that do not result in an actual Registration.
