SportAccord has also announced that its [[registry]] services provider would be [[CORE]].[http://domainincite.com/sportaccord-picks-core-for-sport-gtld-bid/ SpotAccord Picks CORE for Sport gTLD Bid, DomainIncite.com] # [[Famous Four Media]] (Dot Sport Limited), has applied for 61 applications.[http://www.thedomains.com/2012/06/13/famous-four-media-applies-for-61-generic-tlds-poker-bet-bingo-casino-win/ Famous For Media Applies for 61 generic TLDs Poker Bet Bingo Casino Win, TheDomains.com] SprtAccord filed a [[Community Objection]] against this application.[http://www.iccwbo.org/products-and-services/arbitration-and-adr/expertise/icann-new-gtld-dispute-resolution/pending-cases/ Pending Cases, ICCWBO.org] Retrieved 14 May 2013 ===SportAccord=== The community application comes from [[Sport Accord]], and it has engaged the International Sports Federations and the International Olympic Committee to comprise a Policy Advisory Board (PAB). "[R]egistrants in .sport must be recognized performers, organizers, promoters or supporters of federated Sport, or belong to categories of registrants recognized by the .sport Policy Advisory Board (PAB)." The Olympic Committee has previously been involved in discussions in [[ICANN]] regarding universal protections for its trademarks across all new gTLDs. The portfolio applicant, [[Donuts]], has applied for the similar string, [[.sports]]. ==Community Objection against Famous Four Media== [[SportAccord]] filed a [[Community Objection]] against [[Famous Four Media]]'s application. The objection meant [[SportAccord]] argued that they represented the "sport" community and that this community would be harmed in some way if [[Famous Four Media]] had control of the [[gTLD]]. Panelist Guido Santiago Tawil of the [[International Chamber of Commerce]] was charged with deciding the objection's outcome, and he ruled in favor of [[SportAccord]]. This outcome would force [[Famous Four Media]] out of contention for the string, however the company made it clear that they will use all avenues available to stay in contention for the string, even if it means going to court.[http://domainincite.com/14918-famous-four-vows-to-fight-sport-objection-loss Famous Four vows to fight .sport Objection Loss, Domain Incite] Retrieved 04 Nov 2013 ==String Confusion Objection== [[SportAccord]] won a String Confusion Objection it submitted to the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), asserting that .sport and [[.sports]] were confusingly similar. [[Donuts]] was the only applicant for [[.sports]] and will now be in contention for [[.sport]] as panelist [[M Scott Donahey]] sided with [[SportAccord]]. The decision was made in part because the word "sport" is also a collective noun, making it synonymous in some cases with the word "sports."[http://domainincite.com/14268-panel-says-sport-and-sports-are-confusingly-similar Panel says .sport and .sports are confusingly similar, Domain Incite] Retrieved 25 Sept 2013 ==References== {{reflist}} [[Category:TLD]] [[Category:Sport New gTLDs|sport]] __NOTOC__

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.
