    Saw this spa today and snapped a quick pic.

    I wonder if they are banking on the pre release of the .you extension.

    I bet this one will cost around 10k

    Do you think they are aware of new gTLDs?

    https://icannwiki.org/.you

    Took a quick glance and noticed the owner (or maybe somebody with the same name as the owner) is associated with six domains, including the one used for the above pictured spa. All .COM. and 0 .CA from what I can tell.

    Meanwhile, their neighbor Print2Go, has both the exact match .COM and .CA.

    Look at instagram, They seem to have a confusing “love” of where they use a “.”

    Love.you.salon.spa
    Loveyou.insightdns.com

    https://www.instagram.com/love.you.salon.spa/?hl=en

    Then facebook email: [email protected]

    Finally, their website:
    http://www.loveyousalonspa.com/


    Then in NYC, same name, an unrelated but confusing crazy url:

    https://loveyouspa-nyc.business.site

    Imagine being a customer who drives by, a 2 second glance and has to remember the sign. “.” Confuse without the “www.”

    Mentioned this a couple days ago.

    Yes and notice that being in Canada they run the .com and the .ca but use the .ca as their main including the email address. The .ca is so ingrained in Canada it's not even funny.

    Here is something exceedingly silly.....

    They are obviously a franchise and they registered print2goCityName.com for all the franchise locations.
    Now all one has to do is inquire about upcoming locations and pre-register those domains to become a cyber squatter.

    They own the .com and the .ca....... have they never heard of subdomains?

    toronto.print2go.com

    or even

    print2go.com/toronto

    Just goes to show that people still have a lot to learn about domains.

    We certainly do.... we use the true English

    Colour
    Neighbour
    Light

    Now the Yanks got lazy and changed it to
    Color
    Neighbor
    Lite


    I guess an extra letter was too much work :xf.grin:

    Now before anyone feels like correcting me remember that most of the English speaking world will spell it the true English way.

    I can see that, after all the questions out there if the www. is needed and the answer being no, the new G's would have to go back to the basics, maybe https:// will be a thing or everything will be commanded by voice.
    I use neighbor and color, lite is more associated with light beer (miller lite) imo. There's also that generational gap where slang and shortening of words is in.

    When it comes to the differences in British English and American English spellings even brits get caught out occasionally. The main difference is that British English keeps the spelling of words it has absorbed from other languages, mainly French and German. Whilst American English spellings are based mostly on how the word sounds when it is spoken.

    English was introduced to what is modern day America in the 17th century by the British settlers. Since then the language has evolved and has been influenced by the many waves of immigration to the USA.

    The spelling of British English words were cemented by Samuel Johnson in what is considered to be one of the most famous dictionaries in the world. It took Johnson, and six helpers, just over eight years to curate the 40,000 words that appeared in ‘A Dictionary of the English Language’, which was published in 1755.

    Similarly in America ‘A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language’ was first printed in 1806 and popularised the American English spellings that were being used instead of the British English spellings of words, such as color instead of colour.

    The author was Noah Webster who followed up the original dictionary in 1828 with his ‘An American Dictionary of the English Language’ which had over 70,000 words.

    Here are some of the main differences in the spellings.

    British English words ending in ‘our’ usually end in ‘or’ in American English:

    BRITISH US
    colour color
    flavour flavor
    humour humor
    labour labor
    neighbour neighbor


    Verbs in British English that can be spelled with either ‘ize’ or ‘ise’ at the end are always spelled with ‘ize’ at the end in American English:

    BRITISH US
    apologize or apologise Apologize
    organize or organise Organize
    recognize or recognise Recognize


    Verbs in British English that end in ‘yse’ are always spelled ‘yze’ in American English:

    BRITISH US
    analyse analyze
    breathalyse breathalyze
    paralyse paralyze


    In British spelling ‘L’ is doubled in verbs ending in a vowel plus ‘L’. In American English, the ‘L’ is not doubled:

    BRITISH US
    travel travel
    travelled traveled
    travelling traveling
    traveller traveler


    British English words that are spelled with the double vowels ae or oe tend to be just spelled with an e in American English: Although there are exceptions to the rule. For example archaeology is spelt in the same way as British English but archeology would be acceptable in America but is incorrect in the UK.

    BRITISH US
    leukaemia leukemia
    manoeuvre maneuver
    oestrogen estrogen
    paediatric pediatric


    Some nouns that end with ‘ence’ in British English are spelled ‘ense in American English:’

    BRITISH US
    defence defense
    licence license
    offence offense
    pretence pretense


    Some nouns that end with ‘ogue’ in British English end with either ‘og’ or ‘ogue in American English:

    BRITISH US
    analogue analog or analogue
    catalogue catalog or catalogue
    dialogue dialog or dialogue


    There are also differences in the words that we use to find out the differences in words and their meanings read our article on the ‘Is British English and American English the same language’.

    When it is released .you will be pretty awesome for making domain name phrases, but the question is how many decent names will be left as non-premium.

    As far as spelling goes.... I avoid any words with more than one spelling.
