Anyone planing on making this jump when they become available.
Not finding a lot of info on how all these new TLD's are going to work as compared to the .coms. Do you think this new system will help ecom sites as opposed to the current system?
I am looking to launch a new site next year just not sure what way to go.

i'm not planning to.
i'm sure lots of big brands will buy them up to protect their brand.

not sure if i understand the question, they will work in exactly the same way as any other TLD


however as a small business i personally think that .com (and also in my case .co.uk) is by far the best TLD to have, if you can snap up a great single word in any of the new TLD's then i think at some time in the future it might be worth money (if a buyer comes knocking)

for the foreseeable future the perception is in most minds that a site should be a .com (or a local country tld) and a great number of people will type that in anyway even if they remember the brand name .. there are notable exceptions, but to overcome this would take a massive marketing campaign and what would be the point. ... this might change in the distant future, but as a small business i need to be visible and make money now, not in 5 years time. (also in 5 years time of course, but you know what i mean)
