We’ve seen Google rolling out .new URLs to several Google services over the past month. Now Google Registry will let anyone make their own .new domain to help people get things done faster.
Trademark owners have until January 14, 2020 to register a trademarked .new domain. It’s unclear what will happen if companies don’t register, will they be cleaned or sold to anyone who’s willing to pay, imagine coke.new going to pepsi.com.
On December 2, 2019, anyone can apply for a .new domain during the Limited Registration Period. Note, though, that these domains are not free and are apparently not cheap.
There are registration criteria for .new domains. All .new domains registrations must:
- Be used for action generation or online content creation;
- Take the user directly into the action generation or content creation flow;
- Resolve to the action within 100 days of registration;* and
- Allow Google Registry to verify compliance at no cost.
