    Top-level domain (TLD) refers to the last segment of a domain name, or the part that follows immediately after the "dot" symbol. TLDs are mainly classified into two categories: generic TLDs and country-specific TLDs. Examples of some of the popular TLDs include .com, .org, .net, .gov, .biz and .edu.

    Actually the title contradicts the purpose of the article.

    Shouldn't it be like 1000 or 5000 examples? Then the point can be made.

    imo

    Thanks

    "15 Great Examples of New Generic Top Level Domain Use" is the title of the original article. That isn't contradictory. It is the OP that posted a misleading view of the article for some reason.

    I titled the article "15 Great Examples of New Generic Top Level Domain Use" because I searched through and found 15 startups, companies or communities utilizing new TLD's in a great way. Noting companies like Google (X.company), Microsoft (Github.community), Tron (Tron.network), ZCash (Z.cash) and many others were using the domains was enough to show there is development happening. I also noted in the article there are thousands more, but obviously I'm not going to list everyone of them in the article. Listing the ones I did served the purpose and made the point. All someone has to do to see a development pattern is go and type this into Google, Site:.company (can exchange .company for any extension) and see the development happening.

    It is an interesting idea to have a post like 1000 examples of significant operating ngTLD sites. Now most blogs would not accept something of that length, but I think that the idea of doing something like that is a good one (idea noted :xf.wink:).

    With over 1000 NameBio listed ngTLD sales this year alone, and with significant numbers of end user sites in Alexa 1M, having a much longer and more diverse list would be helpful demonstrating the diverse ways they are being used. These short articles tend to just keep rehashing some of the better known examples, mainly.

    Even if one just restricted to a few of the more popular ngTLDs it should not be hard to find 1000 interesting ones. Here are how many Alexa 1M sites in some of the more popular ngTLDs as of today (NameStat data):
    .xyz 2035
    .club 1800
    .online1553
    .site 997
    .top 932

    Thank you for the feedback. If you want to write one with 1,000 examples be my guest. I wrote one with 15 great examples for a reason. This shows a few different examples from startups, to communities, to large corporations as Google etc. using them. Writing an article with 1,000 seems a bit like overkill to me. Seeing 15 developed examples inspires people to begin researching. Researching and gaining people's interest in what is being done with new gTLD's was the purpose.

    Hi @Jason Franklin I apologize if my post was interpreted as a criticism. That was not my intention at all. In fact a number of months ago I wrote my own article with about 15 examples (in 12 categories) of new extension use. I do find articles like yours (and mine :xf.grin:) useful as they show that real companies and organizations are using ngTLDss today. Anyway, sorry, and thank you for your contribution!

    I was partly responding to the implication that one could not make an article with 1000 or 5000 examples. You clearly would, although even compared to my posts :xf.wink: it would be way too long for a normal blog.

    I think some sort of short eBook (published in a format easily updated), and divided in a way not that domain investors would find useful, but rather that end users would find useful, with tons of examples, might make a difference in the recognition of ngTLD by the wider community. Another possibility would be a podcast series with short and snappy interviews with those who used ngTLDs.

    And I totally agree with the following, and thanks for your contribution to making it happen!

    Bob

    Thanks for the reply Bob. No offense taken, I was just responding with my thoughts. I'll check out your article. I appreciate the ideas.
