".BLACK proposes to create an Internet space in which businesses, organizations and individuals can create an Internet identity tied to the color and the concept of black. This will allow for an explosion of creativity and Internet offerings around this concept... It is important to note that the intention of the TLD is to be associated and used for association with the color black, and not with any social, cultural, or ethnic connotations. Associating directly with the color black in a TLD will be strongly compelling for some businesses and individuals, but may take some time in catching on in popularity with the general public. As a result of this confluence of interest, we anticipate that we will have 20,000 domains under management (DUMs) after three years.... .BLACK will be an open TLD, generally available to all registrants (except in the Sunrise period)."[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/1834 ApplicationDetails, gTLDresult.ICANN.org]Retrieved 13 Dec 2012 ==Contract Signed== On 16 January 2014 [[Afilias]] received a [[Registry Agreement]] signed by [[ICANN]] for .black 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== .black was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] of the [[DNS]] on 27 March, 2014, completing the successful application for the string. ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]] [[Category:Lifestyle New gTLDs|black]] [[Category:TLDs with Registry Agreements|black]]

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.
