The first set of new generic top-level domain names (“gTLDs”) are opening for business this month. A gTLD is the part of a domain name that comes after the “dot” (“.”). Currently, there are 22 gTLDs including .com, .org and .net. Very soon there could be up to 1,400 new names or “strings,” such as .clothing, .ventures, .bike, and brand names such as .hitachi.
