The applicant is [[Google]] ([[Charleston Road Registry Inc.]]).[http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/application-results/strings-1200utc-13jun12-en Reveal Day 13 June 2012 – New gTLD Applied-For Strings] The application succeeded and .mov was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] on the 30th August 2014.[http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/delegated-strings ICANN delegated strings] Retrieved 5th December 2014. ==Application Download== The following is excerpted from the applicant's response to question #18: "Charleston Road Registry is an American company, wholly owned by Google, which was established to provide registry services to the Internet public. Google is an American multinational public corporation and global technology leader focused on improving the ways its hundreds of millions of users connect with information. Since its formation, Google has been developing technology that can improve upon existing ways of doing business on the Internet. Google provides a variety of services and tools for Internet users and advertisers of all sizes, from simple search features and local ads to enterprise-scale business applications and global advertising solutions. These tools make it easier for people to make use of the world’s information and enable entrepreneurs and publishers around the world to grow their businesses. In line with Google’s general mission, Charleston Road Registry’s mission is to help make information universally accessible by extending the utility of the DNS while enhancing the performance, security and stability of the Internet for users worldwide. Charleston Road Registry aspires to create unique web spaces where users can learn about products, services and information in a targeted manner and in ways never before seen on the Internet. Its business objective is to manage Google’s gTLD portfolio and Google’s registry operator business. As discussed further in the responses to questions 23 and 31, Charleston Road Registry intends to outsource all critical registry functions to Google Registry Services. The proposed gTLD will provide the marketplace with direct association to the term, ʺmov.ʺ The mission of this gTLD, .mov, is to provide a dedicated domain space in which registrants can enact second-level domains that relate to digital video. Charleston Road Registry expects uses of the gTLD may include but are not limited to unique user content (name.mov), movie file repository services (digitalmemories.mov), or promotional use (brand.mov). Charleston Road Registry believes that registrants will find value in associating with this gTLD, which could have a vast array of purposes for enterprises, small businesses, organizations or individuals seeking to post or manage content associated with the term ʺmov.ʺ This assertion is supported by industry data on online video viewing: 85% of the U.S. online audience watched a total of 43.5 billion online videos in December 2011. Charleston Road Registry believes that given its applicability to a popularly sought Internet activity, the .mov gTLD will best add value to the gTLD space by remaining purely open and unencumbered by registrant restrictions. There will, therefore, be no restrictions on second-level domain name registrations in the proposed gTLD, .mov. Charleston Road Registry will make access to Registry Services, including the shared registration system, available to all ICANN-accredited registrars. Domain names within the proposed gTLD will be available to the general public for registration and use."[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/1305 Application Download, gTLDresult.ICANN.org]Retrieved 17 Feb 2013 ==Contract Signed== On 30 January 2014 [[Google]] received a [[Registry Agreement]] signed by [[ICANN]] for .mov 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 03 Feb 2014 ==Delegation== .mov was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] of the [[DNS]] on the 30th August, 2014, completing the successful application for the string.[http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/delegated-strings ICANN delegated strings] Retrieved 5th December 2014. ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]] [[Category:Media New gTLDs|mov]] [[Category:TLDs with Registry Agreements|mov]]

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.
