Herndon, VA (PRWEB) January 25, 2011
Network Solutions®, the pioneer of the domain name services, is offering a complete suite of services to help applicants for new top level domain names operate, manage, promote and distribute their new domain names.
In March 2011, the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the organization that develops policies that govern the operation and use of domain names, is expected to formally launch the new generic top-level domain program (gTLD) that will allow applicants to own and manage their own gTLD on the Internet beyond the most commonly known .com, .net and .org. Brand managers, product managers, program directors, city managers and others will be able to secure domain names, such as .yourbrand, .yourproduct, .yourcause or .yourcity, and own a unique namespace on the Internet to further promote their brands, products, programs, and special interests. Those interested in securing a new gTLD will have to complete and submit a detailed business and technical application to ICANN for review and approval.
Network Solutions® offers numerous products and services to help new gTLD applicants succeed in this changing Internet landscape. These offerings span the breadth of applicant needs and include products to generate revenue streams, multiple domain distribution options, and back-end registry services. Value-added services range from technical application assistance, to products such as offering email services customized for your new TLD, setting up a Web presence for your employees or fans, and online marketing services that can help drive traffic to your sites.
“The new gTLD opportunity offers a unique and innovative branding opportunity for corporations, organizations and municipalities,” said Kurt Gastrock, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy and Development at Network Solutions. “The Network Solutions’ expert team and proven platform offers a simple, reliable and integrated solution to help those entities meet and exceed their marketing and business needs.”
As ICANN approaches a final announcement of this program, new TLD applicants should consider engaging with industry experts to understand not only the opportunities but also the requirements outlined in the application process. Applicants can consult with Network Solutions to secure and promote a new top level domain name. For more information, please contact newTLDs(at)networksolutions(dot)com
