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] .zip was delegated to the [[Root Zone]] of the [[DNS]] on the 15th September, 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 the applicant's response to question #18: "The proposed gTLD will provide the marketplace with direct association to the term, ʺzip,ʺ which is often colloquially used to refer to a zip drive, a device used for digital storage. The mission of the proposed gTLD, .zip, is to provide a dedicated domain space in which registrants can enact second-level domains that relate to digital storage offerings and information or provide storage or other services. This mission will enhance consumer choice by providing new availability in the second-level domain space, creating new layers of organization on the Internet, and signaling the kind of content available in the domain. Charleston Road Registry believes that registrants will find value in associating with this gTLD, in particular those companies that offer cloud storage services, including major high tech and telecommunications players. This assertion is supported by industry data: IDC projects that global cloud computing revenue will reach over $70 billion by 2015 [Source: http:⁄⁄www.idc.com⁄prodserv⁄idc_cloud.jsp]. Charleston Road Registry believes that given its wide variety of uses, the .zip gTLD will best add value to the gTLD space by remaining totally open and unencumbered by registrant restrictions. There will, therefore, be no restrictions on second-level domain name registrations in the proposed gTLD, .zip. 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. Charleston Road Registry is committed to implementing strong and integrated intellectual property rights protection mechanisms. Doing so is critical to Google’s goals of model Internet citizenship and fostering Internet development, especially in emerging regions. Accordingly, Charleston Road Registry intends to offer a suite of rights protection measures, which builds upon ICANNʹs required policies while fulfilling our commitment to encouraging innovation, competition and choice on the Internet."[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/535 Application Download, gTLDresult.ICANN.org] Retrieved 20 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.
