[[Amazon]] was the sole applicant and the company currently manages the TLD.[http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/application-results/strings-1200utc-13jun12-en Reveal Day 13 June 2012 – New gTLD Applied-For Strings][https://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/delegated-strings .SILK Delegation. Retrieved 13 Jul 2016.] ==Application Details== The following is an excerpt from the applicant's response to question #18: "Founded in 1994, Amazon opened on the World Wide Web in July 1995 and today offers Earth’s Biggest Selection. Amazon seeks to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, where customers can find and discover anything they might want to buy online, and endeavors to offer its customers the lowest possible prices. Amazon Silk introduces a radical new paradigm - a ʺsplit browserʺ architecture that accelerates the power of the mobile device hardware by using the computing speed and power of the Amazon Web Services cloud (AWS). The Silk browser software resides both on Kindle Fire and on the massive server fleet that comprises the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). With each page request, Silk dynamically determines a division of labor between the mobile hardware and Amazon EC2 (i.e. which browser sub-components run where) that takes into consideration factors like network conditions, page complexity and the location of any cached content. The result is a faster web browsing experience, and itʹs available exclusively on Kindle Fire, Amazonʹs new Kindle for movies, music, books, magazines, apps, games, and web browsing. .. Amazon’s Intellectual Property group will be responsible for the development, maintenance and enforcement of a Domain Management Policy. The Domain Management Policy will define (i) the rules associated with eligibility and domain name allocation, (ii) the license terms governing the use of a .SILK domain name, and (iii) the dispute resolution policies for the .SILK gTLD. Amazon will continually update the Domain Management Policy as needed to reflect Amazon’s business goals and, where appropriate, ICANN consensus policies. Registration of a domain name in the .SILK registry will be undertaken in four steps: (i) Eligibility Confirmation, (ii) Naming Convention Check, (iii) Acceptable Use Review, and (iv) Registration. All domains in the .SILK registry will remain the property of Amazon."[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/976 Application Download, gTLDresult.ICANN.org] Retrieved 16 Feb 2013 ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]]

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.
