ICANN has been going through a lengthy and expensive process of opening up new top level domains (TLDs) for websites and the fruits of all those developments and negotiations are finally starting to filter through to consumers. Domain name registrar GoDaddy has revealed that you can now start the pre-registration of some new top level domains which include .uno, .menu, .build and .luxury.
GoDaddy is now accepting pre-orders on the new TLDs starting at $40/$300 (pre-registration/priority pre-registration) for the .uno domain, $50/$350 for the .menu domain, $100/$200 for the .build domain and $800/$1200 for the .luxury domain.
“GoDaddy, the world’s largest domain name registrar, is the first registrar to sell pre-registrations on the new, ICANN-approved domain name extensions, as part of a new program designed to expand the inventory of Internet website addresses.” stated GoDaddy in a company statement.
The new TLDs won’t become usable until later next year and expect many more TLDs to go on pre-registration before then.
