The primary purpose is to foster a sense of professionalism and trust among customers, other businesses and organizations that are part of the lottery industry. We anticipate a variety of reasons that businesses and individuals would want to acquire a domain under the .LOTTO TLD including: * Entertainment businesses may want to create a professional web presence including online stores or shopping experiences, or use blogs, wikis and file sharing sites to support their merchandising, retailing efforts and business goals related to offered lotteries and other games of chance. * Businesses may wish to use .LOTTO domain to create websites to support or announce planned business expansions or changes of venue, and begin marketing efforts, research or tests. * “It is estimated that over two million (people) play the lottery each week.” (source: www.ask.com). “During physical year 2010, U.S. lottery sales totaled $58 billion ($US).” (source: North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries). These numbers represent a substantial number of lottery players around the world and, thusly, a huge potential target audience for this domain. * There are government-operated lotteries in every Canadian province, 43 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In the rest of the world, there are at least 100 countries with publicly-operated lotteries. They are all operated in one of three ways: by national, state or provincial, or city governments. We anticipate capturing a small number of the government-operated lotteries in the first three years who will quickly realize the intrinsic value of the .LOTTO TLD. Therefore, we forecast having approximately 5,000 Domains Under Management (DUMs) by the third year of operation. Our financial responses in questions #45 through #50 go into detail on our funding, cost and revenue projections. .. .LOTTO will be an open TLD, generally available to all registrants (except in the Sunrise period). In general, domains will be offered for periods of one to ten years, but no greater than ten years. Initial registrations made in the Sunrise period may have a minimum number of years required. For example, there may be a policy that all Sunrise names must be registered for an initial term of at least five years.

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.
