    Shorter better by all means, its easyer to remember and more catchy.

    Yes I know .Tech is the big favorite in this poll but I wanted to know if there is someone who prefers .Technology...

    DXC prefers .technology because the name of the company is DXC technology. (exact matching...)

    TECH and TECHNOLOGY have different meanings in MOST uses.

    Tech = Technical, Technically, Technological, Technician and sometimes, only sometimes, TECHNOLOGY.

    Technology = The application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industry.

    Computer.Technology is far different than Computer.Tech.
    Car.Technology is far different than Car.Tech
    Home.Technology vs. Home.Tech
    I could go on and on.....

    Takeaway here is that under MOST circumstances 'TECH' is not a good shortener for 'TECHNOLOGY'.

    If I'd register word.tech for my own use, I'd make sure I also own wordtech.com though... The same with .technology.

    DXC Technology owns its .com, so it can afford the play with gtld...

    The question of this thread is: if you like nGTLDs and Technology what do you prefer: .Tech or .Technology?
    For the war between nGTLDs and .com there are so many other threads...

    Don't know much about nGTLDs, but .tech would seem better suited, for example, for startups.

    Please preach somewhere else... I chose .tech over .technology, but also mentioned that it is with asterisk (I'd chose it only if I have .com of it)...

    You see war everywhere and remind me of Don Quixote...

    Tech

    Shorter, means the same, easier to spell, and sounds more modern.

    Wikipedia says "Tech is an abbreviation for technology"

    Tech gadgets, future tech, space tech,...

    ****Tech.com
    ****.Technology
    ****.Tech

    and of course,

    ****.com

    This is the biggest problem with nTLD's .. ICANN had no vision looking forward to see what sort of mess they would create with multiple versions of the same (or extremely similar) damn extensions.

    It's completely fine and even good that there should be BOTH .tech and .technology!

    HOWEVER ...


    Both TLD's should come together as a pair and ideally resolve to the same page.

    Having .car, .cars, .auto and .autos is just a money grab that ultimately creates confusion and is one of the biggest long-term obstacles facing the ngTLD program!


    You simply can't use CompanyX.tech if there is another company out there already using CompanyX.technology .. it's just too confusing.

    How ICANN did not see this sort of confusing mess of a conflict is beyond comprehension! It's really inexcusable and whoever was behind letting multiple versions of the same TLD-concept get released should really be removed from ICANN ... PERIOD. and a bunch of DAMN EXCLAMATION POINTS !!!!!!!


    PS .. I voted for .tech ... lol
