(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – eUKhost, a leading web hosting provider in the UK, has announced its participation in the roll-out of thousands of new top-level domain names as part of ICANN’s domain name expansion programme. The company plans to offer over one thousand new top-level domains, like .shop, .tech, .blog, .company, .london and much more.
With ICANN releasing new top-level domains for General Availability in stages, eUKhost has announced a watch-list program allowing customers to watch over domains they are interested in buying and to be notified as soon as the domain becomes available for registration, which will first happen through a pre-order phase.
“With hundreds of millions of websites registered worldwide, finding the right domain name for your business is a surprisingly tricky task,” Robert King, Managing Director, eUKhost Ltd. said. “The widest available domain choices are mostly geographical, and if your business operates or serves customers in your country then new TLDs like .UK for UK business owners seems like a much better choice,” he added.
The company emphasized the unique opportunity this represents for businesses to secure the perfect domain name, with hundreds of tailor-made extensions for different industries. “This program provides an exciting opportunity to secure the best domain name for your brand and with hundreds of tailored extensions like .shop, .careers and .app, many of these new domain names will provide immediate recognition to your potential customers,” King said.
Creating a new personalised watch-list is easy, and anyone can create one. By creating a watch-list, eUKhost will provide continuous updates regarding the status of domain extensions you are interested in, and as soon as they start accepting registrations.
Many new domain extensions were already available by the end of 2013, with the rest scheduled for availability into 2014.
