Citigroup, applicant for [[.citi]], has filed several comments with ICANN claiming that .citi and .city are not confusingly similar. In several past [[UDRP]] cases, however, Citigroup has argued that the two words are confusingly similar, and won, leading to the suspension of domain names using "city" in a manner similar to Citigroup trademarks.[http://domainincite.com/10130-is-city-confusingly-similar-to-citi-udrp-says-yes Is .city confusingly similar to .citi? UDRP says yes, domaincite.com] ==Current Applicant== # [[Donuts]] (Snow Sky, LLC), filed for 307 new gTLDs, each via its own LLC. The company has partnered with [[Demand Media]] to provide back-end registry solutions.

Germany issued warnings to all three applicants, while Australia issued warnings to only Dot City Inc. ([[Radix]]), and [[Donuts]]' Snow Sky, LLC application. Presumably the Australian representative believes that the third applicant, [[TLD Registry Limited]] has enumerated sufficient steps to protect geographic names at the [[SLD|second level]], given that the other two complaints note this lack of protection as the reason for objection.[https://gacweb.icann.org/download/attachments/22938690/City-AU-67099.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1353383163000 City AU, GACweb.ICANN.org] Radix received a [[GAC]] Early Warning as an entire applicant, where each one of the applicants was flagged by the U.S. Government. This seems to be the only time a portfolio applicant had all of their applications warned. The issue does not deal with the technical capabilities or thematic content of their applications, but rather the inclusion of an email address associated with the US' Federal Bureau of Investigation. It seems that Radix included correspondence with this address as a recommendation with each of their applications.[https://gacweb.icann.org/download/attachments/22938690/RadixReg-US-31.pdf?version=1&modificationDate=1353452704000 RadixReg.

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.
