July 15, 2017 (Sat)OBOR, brand, and branded domain name
A recent news story has caused me to think about the future of domain names.

In January 2012, domain organization ICANN opened application for new domain extensions, thus allowing businesses to own their .brand. This news shocked the domain industry. Many industry experts believed that once companies transition their corporate website to their .brand and start registering as many domain names as they need on this extension, then they will no longer want to spend much money to acquire .com domain names. This would lead to collapse of the .com kingdom, making it the "second-class citizen."
