What is a gTLD?

gTLD stands for generic top level domain. This is the extension you see at the end of a domain name such as .COM, .ORG, or .INFO. With the release of new gTLDS, there are far more gTLD options than there have been in the past. .STORAGE falls into this category of new gTLDS.

What is ICANN?

ICANN stands for Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. ICANN is a nonprofit organization that coordinates the internet’s naming system, making sure that we have one global internet.

Is there any limit on the number of domains I can register? Can I purchase a new gTLD domain for future use?

There is no limit on the number of gTLDs you can purchase, and you are able to purchase domains and hold on to them for future use.

How do I purchase a new gTLD?

Just like you purchase a .COM domain name or any other gTLD, you’ll purchase a new gTLD through a domain name registrar.

What is a registrar?

A registrar is an organization or business that manages the reservation of domain names. GoDaddy is the largest registrar and one most people are familiar with. Namecheap, 1&1, and Name.com are other popular registrars where you can reserve a domain name.

Does a new gTLD replace my current website domain?

It can but doesn’t have to. New gTLDs can be used for a new website that works alongside your existing website, or can be used to replace your current domain name on an existing website.

How do I transfer my old domain name to a new gTLD?

Your best option is to set up your new gTLD, and then to redirect your existing website to the new domain. You can find more detailed instructions on how to do this here. The registrar you use will also help you throughout this process.
