The first is the traditional registry model - a domain registration wholesale-retail model. Beyond this, the Registry plans to establish Registry-owned domains and websites, in accordance with Specification 9 of the Registry Agreement, centered around different menu categories, such as: Italian, French, Sushi, German, Ethiopian, Mexican, Indian, to name just some examples. A dedicated domain and website for each of these categories will be a content-rich environment driving Search Engine Optimization (ʺSEOʺ) and viewership, and serving as an information, pricing, reviews and communication resource for its participants. Each domain will also contain a directory of enterprises wishing to gain greater exposure to the users of the site. The Registry will reach out to entities within the restaurant community-building platforms to generate publicity for the proposed gTLD and will welcome all registrants seeking a .menu domain. Following a Sunrise and Landrush period, the Registry intends to make domains available to anyone willing to complete the Registry’s application process and comply with Registry policies and ICANN requirements. The Registry will collect limited demographic information from registrants, which will be used to streamline searches and target communications. Registration requests for available names will be allocated by the registry through accredited registrars on a first come, first served basis, subject to the registry policies and ICANN requirements. The Registry will establish dispute resolution procedures concerning compliance with TLD registration policies and shall enforce such registration policies."[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus Download from gTLDresult.ICANN.org]Retrieved 6 Feb 2013 ==Contract Signed== On Sept 11, 2013 [[WhatBox?]] received a [[Registry Agreeement]] signed by [[ICANN]] for .menu after passing the [[Initial Evaluation]].[http://domainincite.com/14450-four-more-new-gtlds-including-sexy-get-contracts Four More New gTLDs Get Contracts, Domain Incite] Retrieved 12 Sept 2013 ==Delegation and Availability== .menu was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] of the [[DNS]] on November 30, 2013, completing the successful application for the string. ===Sunrise=== The Registry announced that their [[Sunrise Period]] for the string would begin 09 December 2013 and end on 06 February 2014.[http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/sunrise-claims-periods TLD Startup Information, ICANN.org] Retrieved 10 December 2013 ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]] [[Category:Food & Drink New gTLDs|menu]] [[Category:TLDs with Registry Agreements|menu]]

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.
