A domain in the .Shop TLD is a must have for ecommerce companies, brick and mortar storefronts and anyone shopping domains! More .Shop domains have been pre-registered than for any other TLD. .Shop domains are both meaningful and memorable. Imagine your website at Shoes.Shop or Brand.Shop. Large brands can differentiate their brand website from their ecommerce pages, while smaller retailers can purchase a more memorable .shop domain name for a lower price in the .Shop TLD. The possibilities are endless!

The .Shop TLD has consistently been ranked as the most popular proposed new TLD in this application round. In 2012, SEDO, a popular domain name marketplace, released its list of the top ten most valuable TLDs. Number one on the list was the .Shop TLD.

There were 9 applications filed by companies seeking to create the .Shop TLD. Most applicants for the .Shop TLD plan to sell .Shop domains to the general public, which means that, depending on which company wins the Registry Contract for .Shop, anyone could purchase a .Shop domain.

The future ownership of the .SHOP TLD will likely be decided via a bidding proceess held between the various applicants for the .Shop TLD.
