Opinion Survey: New Top Level Domains

By on July 21, 2011

A few months ago DotSauce asked which proposed new Top Level Domains would be the most valuable. Lots of you chimed in to vote for .XXX, .Shop, .Music and other potential new TLDs. The excitement in recent weeks has picked up even more as the inevitable rush of new domain names nears.

I’ve been disappointed in recent days to see some web industry leaders and mainstream publications come out against ICANN’s approval of the new TLD system, scheduled to go live in 2012.

There are concerns that new TLDs are just money-making schemes that provides no value to the internet, or that trademarked names are going to be rampantly squatted upon. Do you believe any of this is true?

This open survey features a few poll questions that should offer an idea of reader confidence or lack thereof in new TLDs.
