    So lets see if namePros as a collective can come up with a nTLD better than the current ones and something a business would actually want to use if the .com was already used by someone else.

    Dare I say it......

    Could we even find something better than a .com

    Like

    .bus for business instead of .biz

    how about

    .cda = company domain address

    Can we think of anything better than what is in use today?

    Lets hear your ideas...

    gTLDs can't be 2L.
    ALL 2Ls are strictly reserved by ICANN for countries/territories (ccTLDs) according to their ISO-codes.

    Not at all

    .biz is slang and .bus would be the proper abbreviation of Business

    there is a .business but in my opinion that should have been .bus instead

    Same thing could have been said about .com back in the day
    http://www.thefreedictionary.com/words-that-start-with-com

    It's all about acceptance and so far .bus is the closest match to commercial or company.

    Then again, that is what the topic is about... could there be a combination nobody has thought of yet that truly could be a compliment to the .com and a viable second alternative.

    Right now that is probably .org but it's still not the best fit in my opinion.

    The other one from the list I find interesting is

    .int

    Which could stand for internet

    It would have to be opened up because it is in use here:

    Next portion of nTLDs (read: supply) will be launched by ICANN in ~2020...
    So aftermarket is dying slowly but surely...

    Yup they are but this is a hypothetical topic asking you if you could pick what would it be.

    So if you had the choice to pick the next up and comer after .com what would you pick?

    I'm not debating anyone here and I'm not defending any extensions, simply asking who likes what and if anyone has any other ideas.

    Simple and easy, look at the list, say what you like and give an idea if you can think of a better one.

    Eventually a new .com will arrive to COMPLIMENT the current, personally I not sure if .co is that one but I guess time will tell, it's all about who jumps onboard and when.

    The problem for some of them is that there is no primary market for them. The whole ICANN situation is completely messed up and the ICANN Consumer Choice and Trust estimate of "parking" was complete rubbish as it was based on cargo-cult "methodology" and poor usage categories. Some of the larger NGTs are relying on discounting deals to just keep the new registrations ahead of the deletions. The .WED NGT (Approximately 43 domain names) has already gone into the ICANN EBERO program (essentially new gTLD lifesupport). However, .WEDDING is doing much better with approximately 21K regs.

    I agree that .web may make some dent. But by how much? Only time will tell
