The successful 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] .prod was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] of the [[DNS]] on the 29th 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. ==Application Details== The following is excerpted from applicant´s response to question #18: "The proposed gTLD will provide Google with direct association to ʺprod,ʺ an abbreviation of the term, ʺproduct.ʺ Google currently has 130 products and services, but also has many sub-product categories within each of its offerings. The mission of the proposed gTLD, .prod, is to provide a dedicated domain space in which Google can enact second-level domains that offer additional products and⁄or variations of Google products. Specifically, the new gTLD will provide Google with greater ability to categorize its products online, and in turn provide a more recognizable, branded, trusted web space to the general Internet population. Charleston Road Registry intends to operate the proposed gTLD as a closed registry with Google as the sole registrar and registrant. The goal of the proposed gTLD is to allow Google to manage the domain name space for its product offerings. The proposed gTLD will provide Google with the ability to customize its domain and website names for its products offerings to signal to the general population of Internet users that its .prod websites are indeed managed by Google. The specialization goal of the proposed gTLD is to extend the Google product brand and reputation to each dedicated domain space. This specialization provides a mechanism by which Google can easily link its product offerings. This will allow Google to actively manage its product brand presence as well as the introduction and phase out of spaces for new or retiring products. This specialization makes it clear to Internet users that this is the authoritative and designated space where they can find products offered solely by Google, accessible via differentiated and streamlined web addresses."[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/524 Application Download from gTLDresult.ICANN.org]Retrieved 8 Feb 2013 ==Name Collision Issues== In October 2013 [[ICANN]] released their final assessment and mitigation plan for the [[Name Collision]] issue that was facing the New gTLD program.

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.
