FULL DOMAIN INFORMATION

.wiki is a top-level domain name. It was proposed in ICANN's New generic top-level domain (gTLD) Program, and became available to the general public on May 26, 2014. Top Level Design (TLD) is the domain name registry for the string.

[[Top Level Design]] is the [[Registry Operator]] for the string and was the only applicant. Top Level Design submitted a total of 10 applications; the company is led by [[Raymond King]] who is particularly passionate about wikis.User Submitted The proposed application was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] on 19 February 2014.[http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/delegated-strings Delegated Strings, ICANN.org] Retrieved 20 Feb 2014 ==Application Excerpt== The Following is excerpted from the applicant response to question #18: "Top Level Design, LLCʹs goal for the .wiki gTLD is to create a designated Internet space for wikis. This TLD will clearly identify wikis from among the millions of other websites populating the Internet, and allow Internet users to easily find wikis relevant to their interests. Wiki websites are a growing phenomenon on the Internet and an innovative, easy-to-use peer-production method of creating and presenting information. They are generally open and editable and often community-driven; furthermore, individual wikis and the wiki platform are in constant flux in much the same way that the Internet as a whole is in flux. Wikis, like the broader Internet, are repositories of information that depend on each individual user to create value; they are meeting points and revolutionary ways to share ideas and knowledge; and they are both set to be expanded through the implementation of ICANN’s New gTLD Program, and a .wiki TLD specifically. We believe a .wiki TLD is an intuitive and necessary addition to the collection of new gTLDs to be added as a result of the New gTLD Program. The .wiki TLD will be an open TLD, with wholesale pricing higher than currently available gTLDs. The TLD will be targeted at subject matter wikis. We believe that this pricing strategy will help encourage the productive development of the domain space, and encourage those individuals that wish to create malicious content, parked pages, or other irrelevant websites to use cheaper, more generic TLD offerings to host their content. Top Level Design, LLC has a passion for wikis. Our CEO has worked extensively with the inventor of wiki technology, Ward Cunningham, and in addition to having launched quite a few wikis, is currently managing three other wiki-based ventures: AboutUs Inc., WikiIndex.com and ICANNWiki.com. The latter has established itself as a primary resource for neutral, third-party information on all aspects and members of the ICANN community. Thus, we are productive and active participants of both the ICANN and wiki communities, and it is our goal to merge the revolutionary opportunities of the New gTLD Program with the innovative knowledge-sharing possibilities of wikis. .. .Wiki will have an open registration policy targeted at wiki owners who use wikis as a way to create and disseminate sector specific information. We hope to attract both groups and individuals to develop wikis about their favorite hobby, cause or other passion. We believe that the term “wiki” and what the concept entails are widely understood, and that the average Internet use will understand that the content of a .wiki domain will be largely populated by this innovative presentation of open, editable information."[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus Application Download from gTLDresult.ICANN.org]Retrieved 6 Jan 2013 ==Contract Signed== On 07 November 2013, [[Top Level Design]] received a [[Registry Agreement]] signed by [[ICANN]] for .wiki after passing all the required processes needed to become a [[Registry Operator]] for the string.[http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/registries Registry Agreements, ICANN.org] Retrieved 08 Nov 2013 ==Delegation and Availability== .wiki was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] of the [[DNS]] on 19 February, 2014, completing the successful application for the string. .wiki ran a [[Sunrise Period]] from 3 March 2014 to 5 May 2014.

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.
