The applicant and now [[Registry Operator]] is [[Dominion Enterprises]] (DERAutos, LLC). Their application succeeded and was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] on 22 May 2014.[http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/delegated-strings Delegated Strings, ICANN.org] Retrieved 2 June 2014 Four other applicants applied for a similar string, [[.auto]].[http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/application-results/strings-1200utc-13jun12-en Reveal Day 13 June 2012 – New gTLD Applied-For Strings] ===Application Details=== "Dominion is a leading marketing services company serving the wide-ranging needs of many industries including real estate, apartments, specialty vehicles, employment, automotive, and travel, with over 3,000 employees located in 145 offices in 33 states and four countries. Its websites receive more than 17 million average monthly visitors and 279 million average monthly page views... At the time of completing this application, DERAutos has identified at least two registration policies that are currently intended to be adopted prior to launch of the .AUTOS gTLD. The first is a DMCA takedown policy regarding violations of copyrighted material found within the .AUTOS gTLD. Dominion currently has a compliance program in place to promptly respond to DMCA complaints received in connection with hosting and other value-added services provided to its network of auto dealers. While this current program can easily be migrated to the .AUTOS gTLD for its launch due to the fact that all registrants are existing Dominion clients, this policy will likely require amendments when domain name registration services are expanded beyond Dominion’s existing clients. The second policy will be an RPM that will allow trademark owners to challenge domain names initially reserved by the registry (e.g., generic and geographic names identified in Section 18.1.2). This process will be modeled after the dotAsia Pioneer Policies adopted by dotAsia in connection with its launch.[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/1693 ApplicationDetails, gTLDresult.ICANN.org]Retrieved 12 Dec 2012" ==Contract Signed== On 09 January 2014 Dominion Enterprises received a [[Registry Agreement]] signed by [[ICANN]] for .autos after passing all the required processes needed to become a Registry Operator for the string.[http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/registries-date Registry Agreements, ICANN.org] Retrieved 22 Jan 2014 ==Delegation and Availability== .autos was delegated to the Root Zone of the [[DNS]] on 22 May, 2014, completing the successful application for the string. ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]] [[Category:Industry New gTLDs|autos]] [[Category:TLDs with Registry Agreements|autos]]

Domain naming tips

3 basic tips when selecting the right domain name for your website.

Using a local top level domain

If it’s a local business and you want more customers, why not take a look at our domains which are given according to the location you require (.lt , .co.uk, .nyc, .berlin).

Avoid numbers

Avoid the usage of numbers because the people who hear about your website will be having a tough time figuring out if the website contains the number (2) or the number in words (two).

Avoid symbols

Hyphens and dashes will make things complicated and it doesn’t look professional.
