The only authoritative source on this is ICANN/IANA (and despite its name "icannwiki.org" is not run by ICANN so should not be taken as authoritative source) Specifically you can go to the following addresses: https://gtldresult.icann.org/applicationstatus/viewstatus https://gtldresult.icann.org/applicationstatus/stringcontentionstatus If you do a search ...

The registry does not force you to have an application to register a .APP domain name. You can register one and do whatever you want with it, mobile application or not, the TLD is open. The only thing that you need to take care of, and that should be displayed by your registrar before you buy the domain, is that you buy a certificate as otherwise your ...

TL;DR: For now it probably qualifies as a closed generic, i.e. you will never be able to register a domain name there. But there is no clear definite explanation for now. And the reasons are detailed below. The authoritative source on all of this is indeed ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), not ICAAN. Let us explore it. Does the ...

The Amazon strategy is very unclear: many TLDs of their TLDs offer the same page as this one http://nic.book/ (same for .YOU and a few other examples). I tried to do suggestions but...the guys in charge are moving and it is very difficult to reach out to the right person so I dropped it.

I don't think the future registry has been appointed yet. Apparently you still have 3 applicants and it hasn't been decided who will own .DATA in the end. Also there seems to be a "warning" on the Dish application because of anti-trust/anti-competition issues. Source : https://icannwiki.org/.data What's for sure : don't expect it in 2019...

Each registry is free to sell its domain the way it wishes, and some do premiums, some do not. Although it is a very broad subject, it seems to me it is quite covered in passages containing the word premium here: How to ensure I always buy an informative domain in the lowest price possible? or Should renewal price of gTLD will always be identical to the ...

Make sure you 301 redirect your .in pages to the new ones on .com. .com is considered a general domain which could be associated with any region. You can control this in Google Search Console under the legacy tool of "international targeting" then the Country tab. Opinion is that there is no real negative global impact on targeting a country.

Redirects from one domain to another will have no effect on SEO unless you are enacting a Change of Address. So, buying a new domain and pointing it at your existing website will have zero impact on your SEO. Having a website, which has built up authority and PageRank for its content and backlinks, then being moved onto another website (using 301 redirects ...

There is no hard and fast rule about the usage of TLDs(other than .gov or .org). But some are more obvious than others. Like someone can use .com instead of .biz and it won't make a difference, but TLDs like .app is more of a "signature TLD". Anyone reading the domain www.xyz.app would assume that they would be redirected to a webpage which would prompt ...

Top-Level can apply to the term "top-level attributes": A browser orders objects chronologically based on its HTML ordering. You can also add layers to objects using z-index to determine which layer is the top-level. Top-level also applies to domain endings (like .com). If the domain address is sub.example.com than formally, the top-level domain of the ...

When a gTLD opens to the public (if this is contained in its original objectives, not all gTLDs are planned to be opened to the public), it typically goes into the following phases, in sequence, as decided by registry: A registry reserves some domain names for its own use and marketing of the TLD. ICANN contracts allow up to 100 domains in that category A ...
